    Could someone tell me what year did peugeot stop printing the paint code on
    the 405. I have a 1994 405 and i can't find the paint code. thanks

    AFAIK they never stopped. My 405 is a 1995 and the paint code is there.
    Printed in white on the right hand (when facing the car from the front,
    LHD) front suspension strut. You might need to spit & polish a bit, it
    gets covered by grease and dirt very easily.

    good luck!

    Paint code should be on the near side McPherson strut in engine compartment.
    Mine is painted on - earlier versions had a sticker.If its any help, mine
    is coded POKB which translates to Rouge vall elunga. This means red, but its
    a French car and I suppose they can call it anything they want.

    There are several kinds of red at Peugeot's, like the Lucifer Red (Rouge
    Lucifer into french), exactly the same way there are several shades of grey.
    For example, Magnum Grey, Quartz Grey or Thalium Grey (all metallic paints),
    which are not the same. Same stuff for Ice Blue (Bleu Glacier) or Miami Blue
    (Bleu Miami), which are slightly different (405s light metallic blue, and
    306s (along others) quite dark kind of blue).
    However, a constant is codes starting with P are for standard paints, and
    codes starting with M are for metallic paints.

  5. This link will take you to Peugeot paint codes since 1997. Not 1994
    unfortunately, but it may be of help.
