Get under your car and look at the driver's side tail pipe. Follow
it back to where flanges are bolted together. Your Job Number is
laser-engraved on both flanges.
When your car is built, your Job Number will be a gold-colored
four-digit number stamped on your tires. BUT, the first time you
detail your tires, you will wash away the Job Number.
- You can find your Job Number on the front frame wall (which is now
hidden by front bumper and front support panel framework attached to
car). It will be written in chalk.
Now that you have climbed under your C5,
looked at your front frame wall, and inspected your tires, we'll tell
you the easiest location to find your Job Number!
- Open your back hatch and pull up any of the three compartment
covers. There you will see your Job Number on a sticker. The number
will preceded by SEQ NBR . For instance, if the sticker reads SEQ
NBR 6063, then 6063 would be the Job Number for your vehicle.

Number will not match your VIN Number. The reason is that when

no lids for the three storage areas they have made finding
the job number on a Z06 a little exciting. Now follow with
me on this. An easy
place that we have found to locate the job number for a Z06 is
to open your hood. On the passenger side by the battery,
there is a gap between the battery and the inner fender
wall. If you look straight down you will find several
groupings of wires that run slightly below the battery tray.
What you're looking for, is
the white tags that are wrapped around the wiring groups (there
are several wiring groups, so you have to look at each one). Our
experience shows that
only TWO of the wiring
groups have a white tag that starts with SEQ NBR and
then a long number, usually starting with lots of 0000000's. But
now that you've looked at every wiring harness, there may
be even an easier location to look on and that is to look down
on the small silver box below the wiring harnesses and you will
see a white sticker with SEQ NBR and then followed by several
numbers. These numbers are located on top of the silver
ECM control module/computer. Also
for a last ditch location, the JOB
NUMBER is laser etched onto
the flanges where your titanium exhaust bolts to the stainless
steel pipe coming from the catalytic converters, but of course
your C5 needs to be in the
air to see this.
