How to convert a vehicle from left-hand drive to right-hand drive?

Steering Wheel Escalade Dash Panel


You can convert a vehicle from left-hand drive to right-hand drive. The conversion process of a vehicle from LHD to RHD is not an easy one. It involves the following steps:

  • Dismantling of the entire dashboard, including everything below it. The harness can be inserted easily, but the dashboard needs to be repositioned.
  • Replacement of the existing RHD steering rack assembly with the LHD.
  • Repositioning of the pedal assembly. For manual cars dismantling of all three pedal mounts is required to reinstall them.
  • Repositioning and realigning of the brake master cylinder.
  • Inspection of firewall and repositioning of the accessories, including A.C. ducts, wires, blower motor, and cables.
  • Adjustment of doors.
  • Removal and replacement of wiper mechanism and motor.
