    Default Climate control upgrade

    I'm still living in disbelief that my V6 CDTI Vectra SRI only has basic air conditioning and it appears the only way to get climate control is to buy an Elite or juice hungry GSI.What are vauxhall playing at ? ? ?Anyway,does anyone know whether the air con / heating panel on the SRI can be replaced by the Climate control panel and obviously be made to work.Visually I know it will fit into the slot in the dash but will it simply plug and play.

    AFAIK normal A/C works it's vent directors with a vacum supply taken from the engine vacum(pump on diesels) and climate control has motors for the vent directions. I would love for someone to tell me different though

    I think as Inspektor says. It's not just the unit in the dash that's different, there are motors all around and probably some little control boxes too? I think a retro fit, from what I've read, is a no-no.

    And No, you can't pull apart my Climate Control to have a look!

    Piece of pi55 in the Vec C/Signum. The two little dials either side of the big central dial control the temp (the big dial manually overrides the fan speed and pushing it gets you into the air distribution menu if you ever want to change that). Each person turns their small dial to set the temp (which is shown in the Multi-Display), leave the air distribution on Auto and it sits their keeping a nice consistent temp. If it ever needs changed/tweaked then it's just a case of reaching down and turning an easily accessible dial.
