    The climate digital display for a C200 sport coupe can it be fitted in place of the standard one that you get with the SE pack.

    it can be done, its not easy and you have to take apart the whole of your front car, steering , airbags, dash, etc etc and unless you have a donor car and bags of time - forget it.

    Ahh I thought the difference between the climate that came with the SE pack and the Luxury climate was the display in the dash.

    Have any luck

    Reading a thread that it is possible.

    Something about a Climatronic unit

    A 209 830 02 85 I think thats a US part and they are around $300

    The only thing that you dont get is a carbon filter thinking about it the 581 upgrade is £425 so it could be the unit plus a filter.

    If you want I can ask my stealership parts dept when they open on Friday, I usually get a little discount so it could be a tiny bit cheaper, if it can be ordered at all.

    I would be amazed if it was a 209 part number btw, that means it's from the new w209 CLK! Nice :D . Never seen a part number from that series before :)

    Yes, this can be done and is as easy as unplugging and plugging (tried that on my fathers W203 C200k). I tried the swap with this unit: 203 830 05 85 ....no problems at all.

    greetingz,

    ok I just checked those part number with my stealership.

    A 203 830 09 85 has become A 209 830 02 85.

    price is £144.93 +VAT, I would probably get about 10% discount if I was to order this from my stealership parts dept (although not from the guy I spoke to cause he never gives me any :( )

    203 830 05 85 has been replaced by part number 209 830 02 85 and from what I have read the 209 part number wont work you get no control over the hot air direction I think it only blows down on the floor
