    Did you change the aircon unit too?

    Is it actually plug&play or not?
    I remember a topic where NHN said it isn`t

    About the price not really sure, i guess 100 is low for sure

    Excellent result mate, loving it

    What about the "AC" button? It`s the other way around in the facelift model isn`t it?
    I thought this would need a change!

    Nevermind love it!!

    It all depends on the year of your car, if you have a late 07 onwards 8p then the wiring etc is the same & will work ok via plugnplay, but pre late 07 is not the same, as late 07 onwards has less motors, it actually changes a motor for a cam linkage on the fan unit & also less wiring involved & the loss of a sensor which isnt needed, there are few parts different aswell but nothing major, still on my list to look at doing.

    What year/month is your car crypic cause if it doesnt use the same system then you're heading for issues with the whole climate system, trust me I've worked on this alot & tested vigorously, it will appear to work but wont or will go wrong later & its expensive to fix.

    You should be fine with march 08, what was the part number of your old climate unit & whats the part number of your new one, elsawin has info related to this & also you can check by removing your glovebox & looking at the main fan unit behind this to see if it has the 2 blue plastic motors or the cam unit with 1 motor, if the latter then alls good.

    Undo the bolts that hold it in place namely 2 underneath, 1 inside at the back on right, 3 under the lip where the lid meets the main unit & then remove the left side plastic trim which is held in place by some clips & the door closed is hidden, just levers of & a few fingers behind & the 2 bolts at side IIRC, make sure you hold the glovebox whilst doing, can be done on your own.

    I think yours is ok tbh, but check if you want.

    As you can see the orange plastic is the cam linkage & you can see the blue plug that should connect to the motor that this cam unit connects to, so yours is the newer version so alls good from what the image shows.

    You have to remove the nav unit & take it apart, I have actually done a mod for various others to change for the newer version chrome dials, trust me its not for the faint hearted given whats involved & I dont care what others say, its delicate work given the design of the actual on/off pcb mounted knob & the selector pcb knob, if you play with them to much when modding they will go faulty & the volume control will not work properly & the selector wont select properly, also its not cheap mod.

    The selector button , just pulled of and then it clicked back into place , the on off button the very end piece is the same click on and off , but leaves the bit i want to spray on the head unit , i think the selector button would look a bit weird on its own , what do you reckon ?

    Yes it would look weird & if you keep pulling of the selector knob & the cap of the lower knob it can make the pcb mounted dials go faulty, so you have been warned, I know the pcb dial design & its very delicate.

    That sounds like a good reason for someone clumsy like me to spend a little more on the chrome-buttoned version!

    I have a question:

    Does the light on the 'AC' button correctly indidate when the air-con is functioning, or does it light when the air-con is inactive. like the 'econ' lght does? -In other words, does it autimatically reverse it's state, or does it light up 'wrong' -if you know what I mean...

    And -my only comment about the aesthetics of it all- the 'swept-curve' button 'styling' of the old symphony2+ head unit you had matches the NEWER climate control and cupholder/hazard button styling you fitted... whereas the older, 'rectangular' button styling of the RNS-E matches the more 'rectangular' butons you took out better...

    -To my personal taste, at least.

    Those 'swept-up-at-the-edges' buttons make a nice 'smiley-face' shape, but they are matched by the same shapes on the Symphony 2+, and nowhere to be seen on the RNS navi-plus unit, which reverts to the old 'rectangle theme'.

    Yeah i did think that , but in the flesh they look a lot smoother and i think the old hazard button is just to in your face and has been around for years.

    The AC button only light up when turned on ,if that is what you mean.

    Yeah AC button does correctly indicate on/off & the led denotes the status interms of led on for on status, all they've done is reversed the led feed & changed the button label as I checked the circuit with a meter, so effectively on old units you could rewire the circuit to change the state when pressed, personally think the econ thing was always crap as per previous audi's, just stupid imho & also to lose the off button of the climate from my last audi is a pain for sure as you have to keep holding or turning dial all the time as sometimes I like to turn it of completely in one stroke but no button, dohhhhh

    Yeah the newer buttons are actually alot better than the older ones & took week to get used to & now can see how much better visually they are over older ones, much better.

    I have one for sale but doesnt have heated seats, works perfectly & only got to check all the info as above stated, I actually had 2 & paid about 200 for it as they're 400 or so new, been searching for months for one, then decided to test it 1st before buying new one, so ended up with 2 without heated seats, sold 1 to guy in south america & other one is available for anyone interested.

    I originally bought just the air con unit from ebay on wednesday night for 125 including a chrome light switch.

    ( which i have put back on ebay )

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...#ht_500wt_1182

    As it was not the correct set up on the dials for my car , although i new this at the time and was not needed , they would not split the items.

    When i went to get them , the air con was still in the cage with the switches and they did not know how to get the air con unit out , I DID ! i was going to buy the switch section from Stoke audi anyway on Monday, so when i saw they where all still in the cage i offered them 220 for the lot settled on 250 , but i still have the cage to sell and the chrome switch. So hopefully will recoup some.

    I have as you know put my old air con and switches in the cage to get some money back , but am tempted to keep the air con just in case it all goes wrong. Although thanks to NHN , i am confident it's all good.

    Don't think so as if you look at the earlier post by crypric and NHN and the photo of crypric's heater matrix he has the orange CAM and Blue plug which you don't have!

    Yeap 100% Tom, the older version has 2 motors on the fan unit flaps, where as new has 1 motor & a cam system so the single motor basically operates all the flaps, you have to have the newer cam version to fit the newer climate or remove dash & update heater system to make it work properly.
