    EURO console RHD?

    Hey dudes,

    Been researching but cant find anything on the handbrake positioning with euro console... Given all euro cars are RHD ( forgive me if they aren't! ) Every console I'm looking at buying from Europe for the mk3 RS shows the handbrake in the right hand side which would be the opposite for us NA folk.

    The question is are they all like that? Can I get a euro console set that isn't RHD for the ebrake? If not is it swappable to the other side? Hard to tell in pictures that I'm viewing when buying. Hoping someone can shed light on this for me.

    My theory is our LHD ebrake is connectable to the euro console on the left hand side as well but just doesn't show it?

    Help! I want to spend money for my ever growing habit of bigger drinks

    If you just want the cup holders, you can get just the cup holder, and it swaps in to the US center console.

    You want something along these lines that will actually ship to the US. Or, you can take the part number from the ebay listing and find a ford parts company in europe that will ship

    I have a seller that is Willing to send me the whole thing including hand brake and arm rest etc and the entire console piece plus cup holders.

    But it looks like the attachment for the ebrake is rhd.

    Could I take the arm rest + cup holders and utilize that on my NA console then?

    After looking at installs I'm guessing that's what everyone else has done.

    Cup holders, yes. The arm rest requires a bit more than just swapping because the locking is different

    Okay so to confirm it can be swappable regardless just takes some elbow grease?

    Pretty sure there is a thread on here somewhere about swapping to the sliding armrest. I think it what @thomwithah if memory serves

    Most euro vehicles drive on the right side of the road, and are left hand drive. Ireland, UK, Cyprus are really the only rhd vehicles And Australia.
