    HI
    What do u need to no.??
    Do u have a system that works very well at the moment ???? Most HQ-WB Holden A/Cons were poor performers . Most are now poorly maintained .


    The air con is interchangable between the 2 cars.
    It will take at least 2days to remove a full system providing there are no rusted in screws . A vehicle hoist makes it a lot easier to get housing screws , heater hoses from underneath.
    Repairing ,resealing reoiling upto a day.
    Reinstalling upto 2 days into non factory ac car

    Remove compressor mount and drive pulleys from engine . Compressor needs reoiling maybe pressure test .
    Condensor removal will require panel cutout in new vehicle . It is best to weld/solder on new hose fittings
    Evaporater case removal best to have a hoist . May need to remove valve cover .
    Evaporater will need cleaning and pressure testing .
    Plumbing heater hoses and heater valve
    Drilling hole in fire wall for a/c loom

    Remove dash as needed to fit face vent duct work and vent outlets
    fresh air block off plate drivers side install
    fit dash controls and wire to fuse box
    fit heater box
    Run control vac lines and heater box cable
    fit fresh air box
    run interior wiring to engine bay

    rubber cooling hose for heater fan without it the fans overheat
    Rubber evap drain most are stuffed

    Each part will most likely need repair as they are very old
    If the system is not R134a it will need conversion

    Parts alone are 2000$ and up for a modernised aircon

    There is a heap of small jobs that need doing as well .
