Climate Control

This question has probably already been asked... but what is the compatibility situation if I pick up the EA Fairmont Climate Control unit from a wreckers to put in my Falcon S with the standard Aircon unit?

Wont work without major rewiring of both the electrical and vacuum connections. Also requires the adddition of various temp sensors, control solenoids + fan controller. Its not an easy job too do - many of us are looking into the complexity of this sort of conversion.

Does anybody know how easy it would be to put in a EB2 onwards climate control unit into an EA? They look a bit better with the black buttons so maybe one day I might consider it. And the same goes for the trip computer, does it plug right in and that's it or is there more to it?

Hehe I'm tempted to 'stick' this topic to the top because I'm so enthusiastic for more info into the black buttons issue. The only difference with the ED Climate control unit is it says 'CFC free' or something.

The size of the units is the same, the loom is the same, but apparently the are other complexities. Beyond that I don't know, but as soon as I am ready to pursue the matter further I'll be doing more research.

Yeah that's a good idea. If there is any problem I will fix it.

I'll do that as soon as I'm ready to start spending money on my car again (I think I might take a break from being constantly broke :) )

the EBII one will fir no probs
looking at my brothers EBII fairmont, the hardest part about fitting ACC is removing the dash to install the blend door motor to the BACK side of the heater box - its not accessable from the glove box. which makes it pretty much impossible to do a conversion... unless you have a lot of time and patience!

climate control

Tp be perfectly honest owning an EA Fairmont Ghia I reckon yo would be mad to change the fan speed controoler is $225 new and replacement power transistors are not available and after having had it it is no better than having normal A/C I nearly always use either the Coldest or the hottest setting very rarely changing to 26 degrres for heaters dont bother .

Another old topic is revived. I have removed my old trip computer (and rear demister button) and will soon find out how it goes changing over to a newer black button unit.
