It is a 3 digit code, on the left column of numbers. You might want to use one of the online VIN decoders that will show details of the original vehicle

It's desgined to handle European and Asian MB VINs. To convert a North American VIN here's the procedure example
WDBCA24D6MA599620
to
WDB1260241A599620
Copy your VIN to Word. Delete everything between the B and the A. Put a 1 in front of the A. Insert your car's chassis code between the B and the 1. Copy and paste the converted VIN to the decoder. Once converted the ID will work.
