it could be as simple as reversing the wires .you would have to check the solinoid on the bench to see if it pushes or pulls when current is applied then reverse the wires to see if it changes.and mount the solinoid accordingly (upside down or rightside up) ..the latch only has two directions also so get in there in pull the lever with your finger (rods removed.
)Uusing the shaft of a screw driver or something like that sliding in the latch as a striker would can tell you what the latch is doing without actually closing the door every time
My solinoid is mounted at 3:00 (horizontal) but that only releases the lock mechanisim you still a spring to actually pop the door open..
