Forget Renault. There are plenty of websites like this one
Should save you a bit of cash.

I'll be damned if I can find the paint code for my car as per the above guide. I know it's Arctic White (or that's what the car - Captur 2 PHEV Launch Edn - was described as when I bought it) but I cannot find the sticker that has the code on it to confirm. Tried on doors, bonnet, hatch, everywhere.

The stickers are not on my car either. I suspect the first owner or the dealer has pulled them off. They are not really secure. My problem is a missing sticker with VIN details on is an inspection failure and a big problem with the licensing authorities.

I have two VIN stickers, but neither contain paint codes.

Do you have two-tone paint finish or is the car a single colour?

You should have a 3-letter code which can be "unscrambled" to work out the separate codes for the 2 different colours.
If you can;t find the right sticker on the car iwth the code, do you have the handbook as it should be on a sticker on the front inside pages

I have the handbook, no sticker inside. The handbook says there should be a sticker on the door jamb which includes all this info. There is a sticker, but it only has the VIN. There are four letters B XUI, but I can't find a paint code they correspond to.

As Ivor says XUI is the code for "two colour" (Bicolore)
This references two colours QNC and GNE
Does this help?

Thank you. They really don't make it easy, do they? However, still a bit perplexed. I was told on purchase that the body colour was "Arctic White" - this seems to tell me it's White Metallic? Are they the same thing?

QNC reference here is listed as Arctic White. I'd be reasonably confident with this. You haven't said what you plan to do with the touch up paint (i.e. how big a touch up) but don't expect a 100% match when it's done. Car paintwork is a complex process nowadays, especially metallic paint (hence the extra cost). A touch up pen cannot replicate the original multicoat process so there will always be a slight mismatch.

It's just in case of chips, no need for it yet. Thanks for clarifying what the code meant.
