What is on your car? you would only need part C if they recalled it for a reason and made part C which would make part A obsolute and you wouldn't be able to order it ... but if there are no problems with A other than ware than get the same part. End of story.

Northpole, thanks for your ongoing support. I'm new to all this and constantly learning. If I understand your reply, OEM codes suggest that C is a replacement for A, as A is obsolete. The reason I'm asking is that I already have new C. So to save big shopping / dealer cost I was keen to find out if I could use what I have.
Yeah it should... it's confusing at first but that is how they deal with parts.

A crankshaft always turns in the same direction regardless if it's a righthand or lefthand drive.

Or let me say it this way the engines are all mounted the same way the only thing that is different is drivers position and where the steering collum is positioned and the other obvious things like dashboard etc)... other than that the engines are exactly the same.

Check the grooves on the new bearing as I think it tightens anti clockwise so you might be trying to remove it the wrong way... so instead of you loosening it you might be tightening it more. Clockwise for removing seems the more logical way it is been manufactured.
