Default Cluster swap

Would swapping from this


to this



be a plug and play swap? I am sure it will bolt in no problem but do I need to add extra wiring for the extra gauges?

Unsure, can you list the years those parts fit. On climate control, typically a manual slider or **** version can not be replaced with a fully digital because you'd need to swap all the wiring and vacuum stuff for the whole HVAC system.

That auto climate control is used in the 2000 up LeSabre. Did they use it in your year also?

Yes they are listed on junk part websites as standard / optional on those years. I have a 1998 model if that helps any.

Here is a picture of these parts on a 97 lesabre. The 2000-up climate controls actually look almost the same as the 95-99 I am sure going dual zone would not be possible without a lot of work though. Wanted to see if I could get it automated with a thermostat.
