They will almost certainly be a mirror image of each other. Looking at your diagram, it appears the left hand arm (i.e. that going to parts 5 and 6) is longer than the other, and has a slight curve to it.

You might find you can use some of the parts from the LHD one to repair the motor of the RHD one, but probably not as they are usually sealed units these days.

  • I think you are totaly right. And how you think USA and Europe versions is equal? – neworld Nov 6 '12 at 7:56
  • I would expect there to just be two versions, one for LHD and one for RHD – Nick C Nov 6 '12 at 13:43
