Q: Clock spring compatibility

asked by on

My car is a RHD. I have found the correct/identical clock spring on the internet but it has L8 on it not R8. Will an L8 clock spring work in my car? TIA

My car has 87000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. I would contact the manufacturer of the components (or a dealership if it is an OEM Nissan component) to see if the parts are cross compatible. It may be possible that the part will serve as a direct fit, with no issues, or it may be possible that there is a subtle difference in the part that may prevent it from functioning properly. A knowledgeable parts person from a dealership or parts supplier would be the best to consult for specifics on the part numbers.
