Silly TOAF question
 
Just used TOAF to diagnose my ABS warning light issue and it has identified the rear left sensor, so the silly question is- is left when in the drivers seat or left when looking at the car from the front?:shrug:

I would say left is nearside.

Have no idea what the cryptic nearside / offside (except ice-hockey) mean but use Toaf quite a lot and it is as in the driver's seat.

Nearside in the UK refers to the nearest side to the kerb.

Thanks Trikey, Iíve heard it many times but always forget, more of a hint that us isolated on the continent and in other parts donít always understand the local dialect.:}

By definition, the 'left' and 'right' side of a car is relative to the driver's position. That's so whether it's a LHD or RHD vehicle.

'Nearside' and 'Offside' are imprecise terms and depend on which side of the road a vehicle is driven. That also applies to LHD and RHD vehicles.

I remember it like this for us uk right hand drive cars

Near side is passenger side
Off side is drivers side
Left hand side is passenger side
Right hand is drivers side

Not sure if this applies to the continental left hand drive cars

My driver's side is the left hand side (lhd) ... t'would be much less complicated if we just stuck to left or right relative to the driver's position just as T-Cut says.
