Climate Control upgrade
« on: February 23, 2019, 12:00:49 PM »
Hi Guys,

I have the really old fashioned climate control in the MK5 Golf Part No 1K0 820 047.

I purchased online an upgraded controller part no 3C0 907 044 CB.

Did I buy the wrong one?

The wiring looks different to what was fitted originally.

Any advice what I should do please?

Thanks
Derek

Was my hoping for plug and play a bit too optimistic perhaps?

Yep, the search function seems a little broken.

Here’s a tip in case you aren’t aware.
Go to google and in the search bar, type in: site:www.mk5golfgti.co.uk followed by the search term.
So for this thread, you might use site:www.mk5golfgti.co.uk climate control
Won’t be as good as a working forum search function but does a job.
You can use this for any website by the way - just replace the website url.

Hope this helps

Rich

Hi guys,

Please could you help me.

I have the most basic standard climate controller in my golf, part no 1K0 820 047.

I purchased 3C0 907 044 but connectors are different.

Everyone is trying to upgrade to the HVAC MK6 Golf but I only want to upgrade to what is already fitted into some other golfs.

It is clear and the wiring looks different, must be someone who has done this mod surely?

I can’t find anything related on the forums .

Thanks
Derek

You're not ever going to swap manual controls for electronic climatronic controls.
YOu'd have to rip the whole car apart and fit everything behind the dashboard too.

Easier to but a car with climatronic.
