    Hello everybody.

    I'm looking for a bit of help with climate control part numbers.

    My current climate number is - 8L0820043K

    I'm looking to buy 8L0820043H. Will it fit OK and connect up at the back?

    Visually mine is the lighter black/grey soft rubberised type and the other part number is the black hard plastic (harder to scratch!).

    Also if I decided to fit sat nav RNSE? would I need to change the climate unit again?

    Thanks for any help :)

    Hi Mate

    yes both have same connetions and fit above the cubby hole unit.
    all facelift climate units have same connections

    if you fit a double din you can just trim the climatevsurround using a template made from the cubby hole door
    or just buy a double din climate unit off flebay

    Regards
    Rick

    Hi mate, thanks for your reply. Am I right in thinking there are single and double din climate units? Single din being smaller and double din double the size??!

    Hi Millsy

    Both similar size
    Double din one fits lower down
    Facia can be swapped from one to another with small torx screws holding facias on.
    the part behind the facia is the same on both units, just the facia is different.(Visually at least)
    I just swapped mine when i wired up my heated seats :)

    Double din ones tend to be £80-100 on Fleabay
    Normal single din are about £20-30 and easy to trim if you use the cubby door as a template

    Depends how handy you are really ;)

    Regards
    Rick

    Thanks Rick, interesting info :)

    Have you converted your seats to heated ones?
