I have a '96 SL-320. Has anyone replaced their heater/A.C. controls of the old style (big push button) to the newer led window style ? Thanks

A/C Controls

Am contemplating the same change out. Have you moved forward on the project? Find out any answers?

It is not possible to change to the newer controller according to one of the techs on Mercedesshop.com.

I disagree. I had it done on my 1993 SL. I had the manual A/C board and I replaced it to the new digital screen. It was done by a expert, here in Beirut. But I can tell you that it's not an easy job. Many things had to be modified.

I'm sorry but I don't have a lot of details about how to modify it. The guy who did it is an expert, he doesn't give details on how it's done. It's his secret. I left my car at his garage for 1 day, and I took it back finished. The only thing he told me that the wires leading to the screen change, and that he had to modify something that had to do with the fan. Because if he didn't, then the fan will stay on all the time. Sorry, but that's all I know! [:(][:D]

The modification is inside the dashboard. You will need to send me the car !!! [:D]HAHAHA
The process doesn't cost a lot here. It's 300$ including the price of the new screen. But the car has to be present. SORRY!!!
