Sorry for the n00b question...I used the search engine, but didn't find anything!

My wife's car is a 2000 ZX3, Zetec, 5 spd. I need to replace the RH axle in the car, but all the parts places are asking which transmission it is: MTX-75 or IB5?

Is there a way to find out from the VIN, or is there a tag on it somewhere? If so, where at?

Thanks so much for the help.

Thanks for the reply!

So the axles would be different, correct?

Ok, so the 1B5 tranny came on the SPI...the MTX-75 on the ZX3?

Thanks
