i was wondering if it was possible to change the manual knob style airconditionor and fan controls to an electrical climate control type with a screen? is this possible or does the main car computer need to be reprogrammed etc

This has been discussed frequently. It is a very big job, not just a simple swap over of facias. The actual air-con unit is different and you would need to dismantly the dash and replace most internal components.

Hey Calaber do you remember where you saw that thread? I'm having a bit of trouble finding it thought it'd be a good read.

NO sorry, it has been discussed on a number of threads, but the last one I saw was a fair time back. Try using search or perhaps some other member can locate one of them/

Yeah no worries, just thought it'd be a good read. Might have a squiz for it again tonight. Does sound a little involved, but anyone keen enough to give that a go deserves top marks. Even more if it works on completion :)

I am in the process of doing it, From a single zone to dual zone. Mind you, 99% of my interior is removed :p
