as I said, they’re symmetrical so can be plugged in either side.

Could anybody confirm the bolts used on the cross member :?: I think they are M8 but some are loose in the captive nuts and some are very tight. Where they originally 5/16
The other question is why has someone done this (see photo)

seems an odd section to chop out, doesn't line with crank pulley??
and yes M8, although somebody 'might' have fitted a 5/16ths. . . .

Does it have a non-standard rad fitted? I have some cutouts in G97s front crossmember to remove the sharp edge where silicone pipes run quite close.
