what is taken into consideration left side of car?
Hi. I want to order a part and it claims the left side. Is that as you look indigenous the prior of the car ago or as you sit in the car, i.e. Driver would be left next of car and front passenger would be right? Which means is it? Thanks ...that go for almost any vehicle/equipment/etc that is land operator driven.. L/R orientation is always taken \"From Operator Position\"..Aircraft and marine vessels room Port/Starboard = L/R , bring away from common direction of travel...and nothing is taken native looking in ~ the engine indigenous the former of the car...but the happens every the time..Another oddity that human being use is vehicle drivers side/passenger side..again, untrue b/c we have actually both LHD/RHD cars and an worldwide Forum...
...that goes for practically any vehicle/equipment/etc that is land operator driven.. L/R orientation is constantly taken \"From Operator Position\".. Aircraft and also marine vessels room Port/Starboard = L/R , bring away from typical direction that travel...and nothing is taken native looking at the engine native the former of the car...but that happens all the time.. Another oddity that human being use is chauffeurs side/passenger side..again, untrue b/c we have actually both LHD/RHD cars and an international Forum... Hi Arthur, execute I know you right, that left side is constantly left side no matter where the driver sits? ns mean, the orientation is the same for LHD/RHD car ? Thanks! Left next is left side when viewed native the rear. Always; never from the front. This is exactly how the service and parts manuals will label things.Again, \"Driver\"s\" or \"Passenger\"s\" next is much less specific.
that is correct. The motorists seat is ~ above the best of a RHD and it is on the Left of a LHD car, however both would have the same R/L orientation b/c the driver has actually simply moved over come an the opposite side, however HIS L/R are still the very same ..a RHD and LHD would still have the same RIGHT/FRONT fender, for example..So, you would certainly still have actually the exact same R/L orientation, BUT..some components are specific to RHD or LHD cars , so in that case Benz Parts publications will do a RHD/LHD notation < like exhaust pipes.etc>. That is why top top a chassis like 113.043.100213 < one of my cars because that example>, friend will an alert the 7th number is a 1. That way that chassis is a LHD car..if it to be a 2 , that would suggest the vehicle as being a RHD car..which is why the parts guys want her chassis # ...they deserve to tell a lot just from the #. < unless the guy is among the newer parts guys..he just wants to understand if you desire fries v that >...
