    Climate control units

    ok so here is the breakdown on the heater units:

    crappy manual heater knobs from 2003 i believe:



    nothing nice or exciting about these... if you have it then i suggest you sell your car and get a new one that has a proper climate control unit as there is no way to convert it!


    climate control units from 2003/2004 (not sure when they first came out)



    available in single and double din versions, pretty standard units... side note - hold down the auto button for 3 seconds to match the passengers temp to the drivers side.


    climate control from 2008:


    will work on 57 plate cars onwards... double din climate units only... you can try to plug it into an older car but all the functions just wont work properly. look nice and updated.


    modified climate control units:



    this is the hybrid that i completed which has the chrome knobs on the older climate unit so that us who have older cars can still have the bling
    details for the conversion is here How To - Facelift Chome Climate Control Module Switches

    There is a problem with the AC if it does.

    my econ doesnt stay on all the time. i just prefer to leave it on

    the chrome knobs have to come from a donor unit, but as you can see in the link i put above when i made the hybrid i have put the old knobs on the facelift unit and it works perfectly.

    Ash, hope you dont mind me posting in here to say that I have a 2008 unit (does not have heated seat buttons) going in the classifieds very shortly if anyone is looking. It's in excellent condition. No chips, dents or marks.

    HI mate,

    Ive recently purchased an A3 ,just for work, and 1 i can tinker around with at wknds etc. Its a 2004 Model, no Air Con, Its the standard heating unit. Could I for cosmetics alone hook up the digital Air con unit, and it would still work ok with my heating etc?

    This is the standard unit i have.:

    No that unit cannot be changed, the connectors at the back are totally different and won't allow your heating to plug in or work.

    You would need to get a double din heated seats version climate control. You would need to avoid the chrome knobbed ones as those work for 2007+ cars.
    I picked one up last year for around £60 which is a fairly good price considering they usually go for about £100+

    Yes you can use the cage and stereo until you get an rnse

    Or you can shave the edges of yours to fit, just make a template from card.
