2001 Volvo S40 Q&A

2001 Volvo S40 Question: How do I replace the climate control module?

The heater in my 2001 S40 quite working and I took it to the dealer and they diagnosed it as a faulty climate control module. They said the part was $900 and they wanted a couple of hundred to put it in. I found a salvage yard that sold me the part for $125. Is this a part I can install myself? It looks like maybe it would be pretty straight forward if I can figure out how to get the dash taken apart and put back together. -
Answer 1
Your best bet is to get a repair manual, try http://bit.ly/alldata_repair_manuals I have one for my Volvo and the info is the same as the dealers use. I believe they have a special going right now, so check it out. -
Answer 2
yes you can , just pull the trim panel around the climate control buttons and you will see 4 screws on every corner , take them out and push the module back in the dash and turn it sideways to unplug it and wiggle it out , do the opposit to install, good luck -
