Is the left side of the car the driver’s side? Found a reference in a service manual that seems to indicate that they consider the driver the left side. I always had stuff referenced passenger/driver front-rear. I'm putting new rotors and pads on this afternoon. Is it any different for US and foreign cars? Sure would have been easier if they would have said passenger rear instead of left or right rear! The rotors are only dimpled so I wouldn't have guessed that it would make a difference unless somehow the cooling fanes are somehow directional.
