Go to the "My Account" bar at the top of the page. In the drop-down menu, click on "My C3 Registration". From there, you will see a line to "Select VIN or add New". Click on the VIN you have entered. You should be able to change/edit it from there.....

Sorry, but I have to ask, what's a "VIN number"?

Vehicle Identification Number. It is the same as the number on the title to the car. The VIN tag is riveted to the driver side "A" pillar, behind the windshield, about 1/2 way from the bottom of the glass, to the top of the glass, viewable from the outside of the car.
The engine and transmission also have a VIN derivative stamped on to them at the assembly plant, thus the overused term "matching numbers".

I have to ask. Why do they call it an "A" pillar?

I knew that question was gunna come up after I posted that....I should have 'splained a little more. Anyway, the front windshield pillar is the "A", because it is the first pillar of the structure. Then you have the "B" pillar on sedans/four doors, or any car with a framed side glass. The rear pillar is the "C" pillar. A Corvette will only have the "A" and "C", since there is no structure in between. A station wagon(ya'll remember those, don't ya?) would have a reap pillar "D".
