Pretty sure its the drivers side that is the left hand thread.(this is the white nut on mine)

Just found the answer... tried searching the first time but didn't pick this up...:rolleyes:

Yup, passenger side is a left hand thread. You will notice that the nuts have different coloured locking rings, mine were green drivers side and white passenger side.

The front hubs are the other way around.

Can you guys confirm this?
Rear hubs: Left side - Left-hand thread
Right side - Right-hand thread


I am asking because in various thread here i am getting contradictory results. Thanks! :)

Confirming. Just checked on the car.

The way I remember it, when undoing nuts I had to stomp on the wrench extension that was extending past the back of the car.
