Replacing the climate control unit is one of those jobs that is a bit on the tougher side as it requires removing the waterfall console from the car. Please see our article on Waterfall Console Removal for more information. Once the waterfall console is removed, replacing the climate control unit is easy. You may also want to consider upgrading the outer waterfall console panel to a custom one while it is apart.
