The Citroen C3 'ORGA' number (that can be converted to the cars production date using the tool in the link below) is located on the near side (passenger side) door shut by the hinges.

Its tricky to get a good look of it with the door attached to the car due it being near the front door hinges.

This is a picture of the label, showing ORGA code.

This is a picture of the ORGA (RPO number) from a car:

The numbers from the label required to enter into the calculator are from the example above: 09473CA
remove the leading zero and the two trailing letters to leave 9473

enter those four digits into the calculator on https://www.citroen-ds-id.com/gen/Gen_Organr.html

which for this example gives a production date of: 16 October 2002

This is what the label looks like now:

It's on the right hand side at the bottom of the B pillar, visible when you open the door.
You enter the first five digits into the calculator, so in this example 15787 -> 29 January 2020.

What I'm curios about: the factory code, the last two digits, is 76, which is not listed on the calculator's site or here.
Anyone knows which factory that is?
