Re: Coupe air con - help please

Ok guys, let me share with you some news I have about this case. I've deeply investigated and the main problem that makes us confused is that during the last few years, both R8 coupes and R200/25 Bubble shared the same dashboard. Therefore, there are some compatible parts, which is not true in my ca...

Re: Coupe air con - help please

I have compared the evaporator diagrams on rimmers, the R8 part is a lot different to the later R3 one. The post 95 cars have the R3 dashboard and heater ducting. There is a chance the evaporator will fit if the bulkhead is the same. R.E wiring; I think the electrics were a comination of R8 & R3, s...

Re: Coupe air con - help please

Have you looked at the R25 diesel A/C parts? The L series engine is a similar size to the T so the components might be a better fit in the engine bay. I have never tried doing it so this just a suggestion. You are not the only person trying to fit A/C on their 220, there is another chap on here res...

Re: Coupe air con - help please

I'm currently trying to source aircon parts for my FDH which had everything air con removed from the engine bay after an engine swap. I am getting absolutley nowhere with getting any of the engine bay aircon pipes so if you come across any duplicates let me know. My first bit of advice is look on a...

Re: Coupe air con - help please

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately rimmer diagrams are not so accurate, in terms of differences between 1.6L and 2.0L versions, because they don't list the details for parts NLA (which is the case for most of them). So, there are parts I don't know if they are different or not. Of course the pipes...

Coupe air con - help please

Hi guys,

Not sure if this is the correct section for it.
Has anyone ever retrofited air con to a Coupe (2.0T Series)?
Does anyone know the all the required parts that are needed?

Are some parts interchangeable between the 1.6L Honda and 2.0T Rover (evaporator/radiator)?

Thanks in advance
