mk6 climate into 2006 mk5 gti
« on: February 09, 2015, 12:12:13 PM »
Done a little bit of searching and see some people have done it but seems mine might be a bit different?

My car is MY2006 and I have the ECON button not the AC button on my climate panel.



I know I'll need the facia surround as well which is 1K0 858 069 N 1QB apparently.

This is the mk6 climate panel I plan to buy.



Is it possible in my car. Is it a much bigger job than simply changing a few wires?

I see @MC71 also added the Air Quality Sensor when doing this mod. Is this expensive and difficult and is it a massive benefit once fitted or does it just cause the air con to run more of the time as it seems to indicate on the my-gti write up here...

Many thanks in advance.

Not sure that unit is compatable with your ECON, being a AC one, best speak to Eddie fella.

Eddie fitted my AC unit into my '08 Eddy with AC  (i supplied it) and he also supplied and fitted the AQS as he had one knocking around. No the AQs is not expensive, bit of a PITA to fit as you need to get under the Scuttle Panel. I leave this on the WHOLE time and it determines which air im getting, always leave the AC on anyway.

Sorry I can't be of any more help.

no problem.

thanks for the reply.

sounds a lot of work just to basically get rid of the blue backlit temp readings. If I'm swapping to the white mk6 clocks I thought that these would be the only blue light left in the car so it would look a bit odd... but if its a massive hassle to change I might just have to put up with it.

I also had econ button and fitted the mk6 panel. Swapping of 1 wire on the connector block. The rest is just getting access, removing the the head facial etc.

Before swapping wires, plug the new panel in and test the ac works.
There's a guide on here somewhere that I used.

I have searched but can't find anything.

How much roughly is the new facia as well. I bought the new climate panel tonight so will test it when it arrives.

Facia from eBay or vw, look for 1K0 858 069 N 1QB

have a read through this for fitting

thanks for the links. Neither seem to give a definitive answer. Just lots of suggestions.

One also seems to say I'll need to change the heated seat modules as the mk5 has 5 heated seat settings and the mk6 has 3?

The 1st post in the vortex thread is the info you need?
You don't need to change the heated seats, the new panel only has 3 settings but works fine.

Just trying this now following the vortex thread.

On plug A pin 16 and 20 are different sizes so can't see how pin 16 (very small) can go onto pin 20 (flat and wide)

Ideas?

Also from Vortex

Quote
Motors in parallel:
On C Connector (brown): Pin 7 connected to Pin 10 and Pin 8 connected to Pin 9
On B Connector (black): Pin 6 to Pin 7

My connector C (brown) already has pins in location 10 and 9. Should these be removed and left not connected or put in 7 and 8?

I did test it without moving any wires and everything seemed to work including the AC compressor cutting in and out when i pressed the AC button... but when the AC was running no air came out of any of the vents (sounded like a flap behind the dash was open). I'm guessing this is what changing the other pins will solve? But just need clarification before doing anything else.

Also it was mentioned the heated seat controller doesn't need changing but I had the new mk6 panel on setting 2 and it still felt pretty hot but setting 1 wasn't hot enough?

I might just give up and leave the mk5 one in place and live with the blue display lol :sad1:
