147 Aircon to Climate upgrade - easy?

Hi all,
I have a 147 with aircon and want to upgrade to climate control.
Other than the control panel in the dash, what else is required?
Do you need a control unit (computer), how about motors to control the flaps?
Do you need to swap the physical aircon unit?
thanks as always!

The question regularly comes up, and the answer is that it's not really feasible.....
You would need to install stepper motors for control of the air flaps, add sunlight sensor, add interior and air temp sensors, tie into bodycomputer (probably not even possible), replace control panel, modify wiring looms etc.
Would be a very costly excercise.....

I wouldn't be surprised if the climate box is the same, have seen this sort of thing before and frequently the bosses for stepper motors are present. Often the cable levers engage into the flap shafts with the same drive spline pattern as the stepper motor too.

Have presently a spare climate unit so easy enough to throw up a few pictures for comparison if desired.
