Can you tell where your Yeti was made by the vehicle identification number, if so how?
Thanks, Rob.

Yes you can. Here is a reference to a how to in another Yeti forum:

http://www.briskoda.net/forums/topic/157027-a-guide-to-decoding-the-yetis-vin-number/

...or you could use one of the many free "VIN decoder" pages that are found on the internet.
Yours will probably be a 6 code which means Kvasiny (Czech Republic). Good luck

On a side note...if you want to decode your PR code numbers (which can be quite interesting and helpful), then here is a link to a page that I have found very useful. It's just tedious putting the codes in correctly:

http://prsearch.planetvag.com/


Here's a small example of some of my PR codes from my 1.2 TSi
PRCode: 1AT = Electronic stabilization program (ESP)
PRCode: 1D7 = Trailer hitch preparation
PRCode: 1KD = Disc brakes rear
PRCode: 1N3 = Speed-related variable steering assist (Servotronic)
PRCode: 1NL = Covers for alloy wheels
PRCode: 2UB = Heavy duty suspension
PRCode: 3FA = Without roof insert (standard roof)
PRCode: 3GG = Luggage compartment floor
PRCode: 3L3 = Manual height adjustment for front seats
PRCode: 3QC = 3-point seat belts front
PRCode: 3S2 = Black roof rails
PRCode: B30 = Type approval Australia

If you have ipad or iphone you can install "Maco lite" app which translates codes. It is aimed at Audi owners but codes are valid across VAG vehicles.

It's also worth knowing that your identification code letters on the gearbox will tell you the following info: gearbox identification character, production date, factory code, time, and serial number.
E.g.
HLH = gearbox identification character
13.08.04 = Production date 13th August 2004
14 = Factory code
06:32 = time
0011 = serial number
