when i bought my 2015 Mazda3i new, i didnt notice the vin sticker on the side of the driver's side door was wiped as if someone used solvent.
car still had the vin # on the dashboard.

it wasnt until 2017 when i went to get my emissions done to pass inspection that the mechanic said it was missing.
it didnt cause any problems so i didnt worry about it.

fast forward to 2019.
went to do emissions again to pass inspection and this time the person doing it said he needed info off that vin sticker. (something about weight but wasnt the gross weight.)
i said i have no idea and he just put down some guessimate #.

now that missing vin # has become worrisome incase some other regulations change by the time for my next emissions/inspection in 2021.

how do i get another door vin sticker?

The build plate should be on the base of the B pillar near the door striker latch, not on the door itself.

You can see the edge of mine here:

I would imagine even the dealer could be helpful here. I wouldn't expect it quickly, but I don't see why this couldn't be a special order part.
