CitroŽn Production Date Calculator

The CitroŽn ORGA Number...

Almost all CitroŽns built after 01 Jan. 1980 have a 4-digit number stamped in ink somewhere on the body. From this, the so-called "ORGA" or "RP" number, one can calculate the day of production of that car.

According to the available information, CitroŽn started using this number 01 Jan 1980 with the number 1149. From that day on, this number was incremented by 1 every day, whether the factory was operational on that day or not.

To calculate the day of production easier, I have included an ORGA-number to production date converter below.

In order to be able to use the converter below, you'll need a Javascript-enabled browser like Netscape Navigator 2.0 or higher or Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0 or higher.
Please enter only numbers in the ORGA or RP number entry field. No checking of the input is done (yet).


ORGA or RP number



Production date

On cars build starting somewhere in 1994 there is a 2 digit code printed aside from the ORGA number. This code indicates the factory in which the car was build. For a table explaining the codes see below.


Where to find the ORGA number on your car ?

2CV and Dyane - On top of the bulkhead, right hand side.

Visa - ? (Look on A-post, suspension turret or bulkhead)

C15 - ? (Look on A-post, suspension turret or bulkhead)

Jumpy - ? (Look on A-post, suspension turret or bulkhead)

Jumper - This CitroŽn model does not have a ORGA number ! It is build in the FIAT factory "Sevel Sud" in Italy.

Berlingo - On the right hand side suspension turret.

AX - ? (Look on A-post, suspension turret or bulkhead)

BX - It is printed in blue (?) ink on the A-post (in front of the front door) on the driver's side just below the upper hinge, next to the sticker that specifies the tyre pressures.

CX - On the front of the left hand side suspension turret, usually hidden by wiring.

ZX - ? (Look on A-post, suspension turret or bulkhead)

Evasion - On the chassis just in front of the inner right front wheel arch.

GSA - On the right inner front wing (?).

Saxo - On the right hand side suspension turret.

Xantia - On the bulkhead just in front of the right -front- suspension sphere (quasi below the front window). At that position one finds the color-code (a letter code) and, in smaller characters above that, the ORGA number.

Xsara - On the right hand side suspension turret.

XM - It is printed in white ink on the A-post (in front of the front door) on the driver's side.
