    There are three chassis code for the FR-V, These will aid FR-V Owners to interpreted Honda terminology when recalls and product updates were issued with chassis codes. it a easier way to relate to the car you own.:Smile:

    FR-V -Petrol R18A1 = BE1
    FR-V- Petrol D17A2 = BE1
    FR-V Petrol K20A9 = BE3
    FR-V/ Diesel/N22A1= BE5:

    Can you breakdown what the letters and numbers mean? I have the first BE1 engine. Presumably 18 means 1.8?

    Have you seen these threads @Hobbsey ?

    Decipher your VIN
    Decipher your VIN

    The chassis number does not equal an engine size. BE1 models can have either the D series 1.7 or R series 1.8 petrol engine, depending on when they were made.
    Hope that helps.
