    Hi guys.

    Just spotted an S3 climate control in perfect nick for 35 quid on ebay, so bought it! Regardless of it working, I want to replace my worn out/rubbed off buttons with the temp and fan+/- from the new unit.

    My car does not have heated seats, however, and this control unit has the buttons for this, so I can't just replace the units like for like.

    Can anyone tell me how the buttons come off?

    Many thanks,

    James

    I know, I was very happy! Couldn't click "buy now" quick enough!

    Yeah of course mate, happy to, I basically only need the temp and fan buttons off it, so the rest are up for grabs.

    Use the thinest flat head screwdriver you can find and pop them out.

    Be careful not to scratch the unit as its easily done.

    Cheers Maz, I grabbed an S4 unit a while back and hoping the buttons are the same, hadn't yet worked out how I'd tackle getting the buttons out!

    Legend Maz, sounds like less of a ball ache than taking the unit off, unscrewing backs etc!!

    Cheers.

    Pretty damn happy, was looking at 125 quid from most places!

    As said, I am only after the temp and fan speed buttons, the rest are up for grabs (free).

    That pic looks immaculate James!!! Is that the finished product, or as you received it?
    If thats how it came, just stick that one in.

    Haha, well Matt posted first about the off button, but Callum I still need some buttons off you for my headunit. Will update this thread once I've received the item and done mine.

    That picture is the one from eBay, so is the item en route to me.

    Haha, pretty much, but fair play! I actually emailed a guy who was thinking of selling his modified S3 to vulture the brakes and wheels off him!!

    OK you vultures ;)

    This has been delivered, butchered (jokes!) and fitted to mine, so the rest of this is up for grabs. I would obviously like to get a bit of the 35£ back as I have only used two buttons!

    Below is a photo so let me know. I know people have posted in this thread, but I would like to get rid of it as a whole (those who posted for the whole unit, please PM me if still interested :)).

    Mods, if you're not happy with this, please move to appropriate location.
