The only way to do this prop­erly is to strip both the driver and pas­sen­ger seat of all their elec­tron­ics and swap them around. At the same time, new plas­tic side pan­els must be moulded and fin­ished to suit the dri­verseat con­trols on the right-hand side and the pas­sen­ger-seat con­trols on the left-hand side. This not only fa­cil­i­tates the rewiring of the elec­tric mo­tors but adapts any nec­es­sary an­cil­lar­ies to suit. For ex­am­ple, if the ve­hi­cle is equipped with a lane-de­par­ture warn­ing sys­tem, which vi­brates the driver’s seat when sen­sors de­tect that the ve­hi­cle has left its lane, it is no good if it is the pas­sen­ger’s seat that vi­brates be­cause the ve­hi­cle has been con­verted to right-hand drive!
