Is it possible to fit air-con to a non air-con coupe?

Anybody know the answer to this?

Cheers

you can fit air con to any car. the DIY retrofit kits are designed to be as easy as possible to install, but it sitll requies a confident DIYer. if you feel up to it and aircon matters that much to you then go for it.

Indecent amount of work..as has been said..buy a coupe with aircon.

At the least..take out the engine. Fit a compressor & plumbing + longer aux belt to drive it . This means taking off the timing belt...and re-timing the engine when finished.

Next we strip out the entire dash and most of the existing vent fittings to replace with the new aircon units...Thats if you can still get all the parts. Probably only from Fiat and we all know what they charge..

The man from Del Monte..He say F* off!

not really worth it to be honest.
you need different loom too.

coupes are that cheap to buy now you'll save yourself alot of time and expense.

does make all the difference though 'cus if you have leather it does get hot in them.

i had my windows tinted on my old one that had no air-con, it made a difference.
