Near (the kerb) side so therefore that means offside is not near (the kerb) side lol.



Conventionally, when determining the right or left side of the car, (unless it specifically states otherwise), in a right hand drive car (everyone knows what is a RHD car), the side with the steering wheel is the right side. In a LHD drive car, the side with the steering wheel is left.



eg the fuel filler cap on ours cars is on the right hand side. With the specifically stated otherwise version of that statement is, when looking at the front of the car, the fuel filler cap is on the left side - it is still the same side ....................
Exactly its all a question of were you start from in the first place !

Just to say that when my TOAF told me my N/S/R sensor was faulty it turned out to be the hub bearing.

It gives the same fault.

Yes indeed, however that would be too ease, that is the price you pay for being 'intelligent' as a species, I mean, to put it another way, why say something with one word when thirty would do, and still not exactly know what is said. Humans!!!!, love them!!!.

Well it would of course. Confusion unfortunately arises when 'near side' or 'off side' are used to describe the location of things which aren't lhd or rhd dependant. To give an example or two.


  • fuel filler on a 75 is always on the right (coincidentally this is the 'off side' on rhd cars).
  • Steering wheel is always on the offside of the car (left for lhd cars, and right for rhd cars)
  • Front passenger seat is always on the nearside of the car.
  • Brake pad wear sensors, someone else might confirm if they are on the offside of the car or are they on the right hand side?
- clearly offside and nearside should only be used to describe the location of parts that switch Left/right depending on the lhd or rhd.


Exit stage nearside....

Unless it is a pre 67 (?) "Native" car in Sweden (think the op is from Sweden?) Or the car is in Myanmar (where I believe they have right hand drive whilst driving on the right)

There are of course, always - always, exceptions.
