Default Automatic Climate Control upgrade

Can I replace my manual climate control with automatic? If so, what needs to be changed?

I believe you can but it would be alot of work, you'd have to change out all the actuators also.

And the solar radiation sensor.

You would be ripping the entire dash out to the firewall to run the wires and install everything.

With the factory service manuals, and alot of experience inside these cars, it would probably take me a couple days. That'* a couple days of HARD work with all the manuals already here.

Just not worth it.

Agreed....

The dash would need to come out, and you would want all the donor parts and items in hand and all the info researched before you touch the first bolt.

Then...I think it would still be about a day project. Pulling the dash/console is about an hour, reinstall..another. then wiring and hopefully the airboxes don't have to be swapped.
