    It does not matter which side the steering wheel is - the wiper mechanism is not changed.

    Which means in the UK, the passenger gets a clearer screen than the driver :(

    no. sorry.

    The part number difference would suggest not


    The first 3 digits are for the specific model or engine etc

    Next 6 are group and sub group .as in body / wiper linkage

    Then letters for specifics as in base or gti etc. Can be doubled up if modified or upgraded and even X for exchange items etc .

    Body parts usually have extra 3 letters for colour codes or trim etc .

    thank you for the reply
    i call seat service parts and the seller give me this number part for my car 5P0955601B (left side)
    but yesterday i open and see behind. My number is 5P0955023FBVA
    Its the same!
    But my question is if the 5P0 is the same of the 1P0 is very similar on the picture.. ALTEA (XL) / TOLEDO III vs LEON

    Could be subtle difference between the two such as the angle of the spindles casting to compensate for the screen rake. Or the length of the rods

    I can see why your asking. Sadly not had both side by side to compare

    exactly.. unfortunatly you are right. litle diference can make a big difference.
    For our altea /XL one way 200 euro for one side. 400 for both very expensive

    Hi, nope, those parts are definitely different and the Leon part won't fit in your Altea and vice versa, no matter which model year.

    I assume, the pictures you're referencing might be the ones offered as exploded views ... they're often enough standardized, thus not precise enough.
