    Default Seriously considering retro-fitting climate control

    I was at the scrappers the other day and i noticed that a lot of the heater/ CC gubbins behind the dash was left in a car with single zone CC when it was being hauled away to be weighed in. It got me thinking. Which bits would i actually need to fit to turn a standard heater setup into a CC of come sort?

    Having done it you need a new air distribution box, a new blower motor and a new dash loom or at least the extra plugs to be loomed in oh and a switch panel. Then about 8 hours of time if you know what you are doing and a lot of programming.

    Hmmm, all of those bits (except the motor) were the buts that got binned. What's the hard job labour-wise as most of the dash comes out in minutes.

    The cross member behind the dash the air distribution box removal disconnecting aircon and water. Might seem like not a lot of work central consol and dash is a couple of hours alone. Ask Husky he did it on his own and it was a full day.
