    Air con?

    How easy is it to install air conditioning into an astra sxi, is it worth bothering?

    I think you would be looking at a lot of time and effort, I know this isn't much help but on a CTR the air con is a £1200 dealer fit option :shock:

    I can't imagine it being much less than from a specialist, thats if its even possible :?

    It's a major job. The dash would have to come out to replace all the guts of the heater, all the piping would have to go in meaning the engine would have to come out.

    Then you'd have to put in the wiring, the larger radiator, the evaporator, the pump which I imagine would need different mounts on the engine, new belts. Some of the engines have different sump pans if they have aircon fitted.

    It'd be cheaper to sell your car and buy one with aircon. Your SXi must be quite old if it doesn't have aircon?
