RE: Replace Climate Control Unit - 190e
The CC push button unit is swapped from the center console and is a plug in unit, but depending on what year car you have (the design of the facia is different) may require you to remove the radio, blanking plate, etc.
The AC compressor is mounted at the front of the engine, on the 2.3L it's on the exhaust side, under the alternator. Unless you're familiar with a/c systems and have the tools to evacuate and refill the system, it's best left to the pros.
