As you can see above, parts described for the left hand side would be on the left, and right hand parts would be on the right. One this Jeep, the steering wheel is on the LEFT SIDE. But on export (also sometimes referred to as "grey market") vehicles, such as in countries like Australia, Britain, and many others, the steering wheel is on the RIGHT SIDE. This will not effect the way you order or describe parts. It works the same: left hand parts fit the left side. right hand parts fit the right hand side.
Now, let's take a look at another description that's sometimes used to help place auto parts, and note their location. DRIVER SIDE, and PASSENGER SIDE. We try not to use that term here, because we ship parts all over the world Internationally, and the steering wheel could be on the right side (commonly referred to as RHD = Right Hand Drive). If you walked into a local parts store, say in the USA, where 99% of the vehicles are left hand drive (LHD), they will usually ask if you need a part for the driver or passenger side. If they sell you a part for the Driver side, it will be for the left side. In Australia, the same question at their local parts store would be the opposite, their Driver side would get you part for the Right side. If we sell a part for an export vehicle, (and we carry many of them), we will note it on our website with the RHD designation. We know you already understand the difference between front and rear, so that won't effect much, except that a part, especially on a 4-door vehicle, can be Left Front, Right Front, and of course, Left Rear, and Right Rear. Overall, it's a common issue, left or right side, and even mechanics make the mistake sometimes. As long as you know your left from your right, you'll be ok. Join Us: Read More:
