Been quiet here for a while due to work commitments - flying in the rain!! (or not, as the case has been on a few days here..)
Anyway, finally located and today installed the digital climate control module for the 55...
Before and after pics attached - looks a LOT nicer, and has the benefit of the 'Auto' function too - much more like it (had this in the previous GTV, and it took a bit to get used to fiddling with manual controls again!!)
Also, whilst bits were out...
* -- I relocated the Alpine GPS antenna so it's now in the correct 'place' behind the rear view mirror housing (thanks to those on the forum who've previously documented this) - much tidier now,
* -- I finished of the DVB TV Tuner install (3rd pic) - the TV Module sits nicely in the front electronics bay (there is LOADS of room in there for stuff!)
Still on the list to do..
Power folding mirrors - still need the console switch and passenger mirror mechanism (have the drivers side)
Going to add the sun / IR sensor that goes with the Climatronic system to the dash - need the centre vent with this in as wiring is now in place for it..
Anyone with these parts going spare, or any info on anyone who has would be grateful - looking in the 'usual places' already.
The centre vent can also include the Parktronic display as I plan to retrofit this too (sucker for punishment!)....
And finally, one for John I'd imagine - having fitted the Climatronic panel I understand power needs to be removed from the car to reset the air outlet flap positions - is there a fuse that can be removed instead of a full disconnect (just trying to save time and hassle!!)
