Central Locking Mechanisms by JakeWilson

Evening all,

A friend is requiring a drivers side door lock mechanism and sent me a link to this one:

The car this ebuy buyer is breaking is RHD, and he wants to know if they were at all different between LHD&RHD or would this work in his car?

As I read it at Rimmers (#21), Jake, there are different parts for LHD and RHD door locks.

In the front, they would be different. The drivers side has to cope with the key lock, the passengers don't. And drivers side moves with hand of drive.

Usually! I did once see a software error where it worked fine for LHD cars, but the system assumed the driver was on the left for all cars, so RHD cars didn't work right.

Needless to say it was a European supplier......
