  • 3rd Gen heater control unit

    Hi all

    Any idea where I could get hold of a replacement heater/HVAC control unit for my 3rd gen? It's the sliders-and-buttons one not the rotary one.

    The unit still just about works but the illumination is all gone, and I know it sounds lame but it's a ###### pain at night!

    I recently changed my stereo, so I took the chance to pull the HVAC control unit out and have a peek as well. Looks like you can replace the bulbs that illuminate the main icons, but not the temp and fan sliders. I also kind of shorted something out by trying to jiggle a dodgy connection with the sidelights on... doh.

    Any help much appreciated!

      IIRC Popeye hasn't done a 3rd gen unit. The bulbs are different. A few of mine are gone but I couldn't find out what they use (the ones I need are like a tiny non-LED "LED" style bulb).

              Well spotted - yep that's definitely my 3rd Gen unit!

              I had seen the Popeye thread (very eye catching colours!) but I'm really looking to replace the whole unit if possible. The stalk lights for fan/heat don't look replaceable, and besides that, functionally mine feels on its last legs

              Any ideas?

                        I've sent mine off to Popeye, so it's just waiting until he has time to do it.
