    Do a search mate - a full retrofit is possible but it needs more than just the panel to work. You'd need the entire air distribution system from a donor car.

    I'm gonna access the side by driver footwell , (black cover on white box. To see the heater matrix and flaps which the control lever motor controls from the dial if u understand? There is 2 flaps. Turns by a long rod which is turned by the red lever by glovebox. Them rods are clipped to the arm of flaps and flaps on the arm. I'll get to that area and hope its disattached. Then i can reattach and hope all is well. If not its heater matrix!!!

    I might not do the whole change. Not bothered about cc tho lol just need resolving the issue
