    09 climate control in 06

    Good evening All
    Anyone know what work would be involved in making a 2009 climate control work in a 2006 car ???
    I had heard some reports of them working and some not working so I bit the bullet and bought one,which seems to be alright exept for the recirculate button (top left) when it's selected the flaps don't open and the A/C button which only stays illuminated whilst
    pressing the A/C button, I was reading a thread on mk5golfgti.co.uk where mk5 golf owners can fit mk6 climate control but it's a dash
    out job to fit a new air flap I think ,

    looks like you were unlucky and have the older system. As with the Golf, i'm afraid you would have to change the whole airbox unit :-(

    Cant be done, anyone says can with just the climate, they're talking ball-locks.

    As ewan states, change of heating unit & dash out.

    So it CAN be done then?, dash out and change heating unit???
    Got the unit for a good price so thought I'd try it out I'm sure some of us don't mind being the guinnea pig with parts to see if they
    work :-),
    I had a feeling it was the old unit Ewan but I've heard of some older cars plug and play, saying that I haven't actually seen it!!!!!
    Thanks guys

    I was the guinea pig, it doesnt work & anyone that says it does on an 06 car doesnt understand the system, it wont work on an 06 car in factory form, thats a fact, wiring & motor differences.

    Yes it will work if the heater system is changed & wiring amended.

    I know what you mean Ewan, hell of a job just to have a new control unit,I guess this control will live under the stairs for the time being

    The only dashes I've had out were from my old 80 sports, some
    years ago

    So how would we know if this works?

    I have a Jan 2008 sportback which i would like to update the climate control buttons to the chrome version.

    Is this possible then as a swap out?

    I have pasted one of Nathans posts from the eBay/classified thread below, hope it helps ,
    My car is 08 plate. I believe if you take the glovebox out you should see orange tabs or something of the like (thats what nigel said) and then you'll know if its a no or a go. Matt andrew also has this in his S3 which is a 57 and works perfectly.

    If you have an 08 car with climate control, then its 99.9999% sure to work, but has to be done with vcds aswell to initialise the unit.

    Yes if you see the orange cam system connected to the fan unit with 1 blue motor, it will work.
