    Hello all

    I read somewhere that a late spec (chrome knob) climate control unit would not work in an early (2004) car.

    Is this true? I converted my car to double din today for my RNS-E, and thought I would try a late spec single din control unit I had lying about. It appears to be working ok?

    Anyone have any information on this? Have I been misinformed, or have I just not noticed something not operating properly? Or perhaps there are different versions of the facelift climate unit?

    Would be interested to hear your views,

    Thanks.

    Can you shed any light on what doesn't work? I have just been out testing it and cannot find any issues?
