: Anyone know paint code for Sandstorm???

09-10-06, 03:46 AM
I've looked everywhere (searched this forum a ton) that everyone says you can find the code, and I can't find the sticker on my 2005 Sandstorm SRX anywhere.

Does anyone know the paint code? Help!

My SRX has the 3rd row folding seats. The paint code is located under the headrest cover, which is only accessible when the 3rd row seats are upright. If you don't have 3rd row seats my guess would be somewhere under the lids of the cargo storage system.

That is the first place I would have checked. LOL.

I also have the 05 SRX Sandstorm. The paint code is located on a decal inside the right rear storage compartment, above the wheel well. There are 5 rows of numbers. The paint code is on the fifth line, six digits in from the left. The code is 61U. For paint shop purposes, the code also is known as WA918L, which appears below all the other numbers.

If you need touch-up paint, GM parts dept. has it. The numbers on mine are 1#12346787 Code 61 WA918L "Gold Slate Metallic".

Hope this helps. Let me know.

waretteer: Thanks for the above info on decal placement. MY 2005 SRX BlueChip has the following: 1st line is VIN, followed by HRHV3C 6EB26;
next 5 lines have 11 sets of alphanumerics; next line has 3 ANs; last line has BC/CC U 722J 192.
The 10th AN set is 25U; my paint code ?? vs your 61U ??
Any other suggestions on how to read/ decode the Service Parts ID ?? Thanks

I can't be sure from your description that 25U is your code, but if you can give me the last 8 digits of your VIN I can get it.

THANK YOU!!!! It was the WA918L code I was looking for. And yeah, under the 3rd headrest, how could I have overlooked there! :rolleyes:
