My 1997 528i E39 needs a new Climate Control Unit.
Her indoors gets strong blasts of cold air in strange places
which means I get even stronger blasts of hot air in my left ear........
You can imagine what the Main Dealer wants for a new one
but I have found one on E bay which looks pretty pukka
but its from a lovely looking 1999 540i -
the unit is photographed "in-situ" with perfet pixels,which I imagine is a good indication of it's condition (?).
the car looks perfect but it's had an auto box failure : (
My problem is I'm not sure if it will be compatible with my 1997 528i
I've had mine out and looked at its Serial Numbers, which are as follows :-
BMW 64 11 8 375 453 .0
HW 02 K8 SW 07(C) 03(C)
Pre h 90025 - 041/0000
SER NR 00350279 KW 32/97
The Serial Numbers from the 540i are as follows :-
BMW 64 11 6901 628.9
HW 03 K9 SW 14(P) 05(C)
Pre-h 90025 - 086 / 0000
SER NR 00737588 KW 16/1999
Can anyone advise me if the two are interchangeable ?
