    The information about the depth of the Climate Control is in this thread, you need to cut the plastic.

    You cut the CC plastic, posts #27 to #33 show where to cut.

    I would recommend you get a spare one is case you mess up, as the car will run on full heater without the CC in it.


    And make sure you only cut the plastic when you have taken the circuit boards out.

    Next time I have reason to take my CC out, I will take photos, but don't hold your breath as it is in and working and I don't want to tempt fate by taking it all out again.

    that wiould be kind of you i started trimming and will b posting photos. i just want to get the second point clear : whaen u said

    "2. You need to trim the plastic back and remove the vertical board and tuck that down under where the switches go. You must leave enough of the back for the fan to fit onto though."


    1- the vertical board do u mean the one has the buttons on the front.
    2what switches do u mean
    3- tuck what down.

    Thank you and forgive my annoyance

    oops, meant horizontal one, ie not the one with the buttons on the front.

    in between the sunglasses holder and the gear stick there is a row of switches, normally things like ASC and Heated seats switches sit there, you may just have a row of blanking panels.


    You tuck the PCB that was horizontal.

    Well at present my board is naked, but I did plan on putting a case around it, just never got around to it.
