you are better off opening the unit and replacing the board inside as the climate panel is linked to your pollen filter service so if you put a different panel in it throws your service schedule out and can t be reset either by you or the dealers.
its really a 5 min job in total.
I kept my old panel with the board swapped so i could put back standard if i ever sold my car which i do on a regular basis
Cheers for the heads up on that, noted!
Having picked a climate unit up with radio buttons on eBay for £30 delivered I'm quite pleased! It should give a nice refresh
