Default Climate Control Unit

I wanted to know how I could check the part number of my climate control because I was thinking of ordering this:

http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&alt=web&id=331151387674

I have a 1992 SC300. Does anybody know if it's all the same and it'll guarantee fit without having to go through a bunch of trouble trying to find the part number? If not, how do I go about finding it and how hard is it to find?

The climate units are all the same from 92-2000. It'll fit, and Tanin auto so far hasn't screwed anybody on the forum yet that I've seen. That is a bit of money, if you're willing to go without a climate unit for a bit Tanin offers a service where you send in your unit and they rebuild it and send it back for around 10% of that price.

Or you could go with a touchscreen unit from LXCC and you'll get a brand new face for your climate control unit.

That unit is fully rebuilt with a warranty from us.

If you want to just send yours in for repair it would be closer to $80.

This is a little off topic but Tanin if I send both my ecu and cluster would I get a little discount.

The touchscreen looks pretty snazzy. It seems like a cool investment. I might consider it.

I'm not too sure how to remove the unit. I couldn't find much help, but anyways, a couple questions. My LCD screen doesn't work at all and it looks like it's deteriorating, is fixing that included within that $80? Also, what's the average turnaround time? Thanks.

2thumbs up for the quality work Tanin does. My pix dont even do them justice. Great work! Quick turnaround also. Had my cluster, ecu, & climate back within 7 business days.

The DIY sticky has a thread from Lextech. Jason Tanin may have info as well. Use the search and there are likely several that can walk you through the removal process.

I have the LXCC controller and my backup is my original controller rebuilt by Jason Tanin. All depends on your budget.

Opted to have an experienced audio shop to install the LXCC as it does require tearing apart the console to get to the climate controller and in my case it sits on top of the Pioneer double DIN. The LXCC is an after market unit and has a lot of other features you may or may not want. A coupe of pictures during my install and the results.

Keep us posted of your progress....
