also, if for some resaon the Service Parts ID label is missing, you can call any local gm dealership and give them the first 9 numbers of the VIN .. they will be able to look it up and get you the proper code.

Also, if you ask nicely, they can give you recall/service history, etc if you didnt buy it new
