Relocating the Steering Wheel

Relocating the Steering Wheel

Here’s the scenario: You have found your dream car, but the steering wheel is located on the wrong side, and you aren’t allowed to import/drive it in your country. Can it be swapped over and how difficult is relocating the steering wheel?

As with most things, the answer depends on the car. The most challenging item is to re-engineer the dashboard. On older cars this can be fairly simple, but on newer cars, less so, but still possible.

Swapping the steering and pedals over is generally simpler and boils down to an engineering challenge. A different steering rack will be needed and some adjustments to the vehicles internal bulkhead will need to be changed.
