Right Side or Left Side?
Last Updated: 3/18/2015
Some people have a difficult time with the meaning of "Right Side" and "Left Side" when it comes to auto parts. This is understandable since many industries consider "right" & "left" opposite what we might think.

To put it most simply, auto parts are classified as though you are sitting in the vehicle.

In different regions of the world, the steering wheel is on the Left and some are on the Right, so the designation of "Driver and Passenger Sides" would not always be the same.

For Left Hand Steering cars...

Right Side = Passenger Side

Left Side = Driver Side

For Right Hand Steering cars...

Right Side = Driver Side

Left Side = Passenger Side

Either way it is always Right or Left from the perspective of sitting inside the vehicle and looking forward through the windshield.
