Again back to this question about retro fitting climate control to a MK4 Astra..
I won't ask "can it be done?" as I'm a believer in the idea that anything is possible (especially when it is available as a factory option i.e. parts must be interchangable!)
I also won't ask how long it takes, as i can imagine its not something to do whilst the missus watches Corrie..
I am going to ask what parts are needed?.. I think I've read that someone looked into this, and found quite an extensive list of parts needed... does anyone have that list?
My understanding is that I'll need a full interior loom, servo's & possibly an airbox, I've heard mention of a solar sensor (is that part of the windscreen - if so, then new windscreen ), interior temp sensor (where is it normally fitted?), oh and obviously the controls & dash panel...
Now onto the bad part.. does anyone know the cost involved? I understand its gonna be quite a bit, but that doesn't help... I'm calling out to anyone that may have already priced it all up.
Perhaps someone with experience of breakers could help me with a guide price as to how much this lot would cost, and how common are they? Oddjob/Danny/anyone else... have you ever come across any in the breakers? and is it something they're likely to let me buy as a whole?
I'd like to do this upgrade, not just because I want the extra twidly knobs on the dash, but also because it seems like a great challenge to rise to!! If I can source the parts needed, I could document the whole thing, and maybe make a how to! ha ha ha
