I can't figure out these VIN Splits that ECS has for the headlight washer tank and pump.

For example they list:
For vehicles with headlight washer systems from VIN 8D-X-200001, split is in the 1999 model year

My VIN reads 8D-1-12....

Why is there a number instead of a letter in that middle digit for my VIN? Or does it cycle though A-Z then 1-9? This is a 2001 car.

Anything pre 2001 for the eighth digit from the end is a letter.
Hence why yours is a 1.

2001 is a 1
2000 is a Y
1999 is an X
1998 is a W
