Now available for all Vanagons, dash A/C and Climate Control !


For years, Vanagon owners have suffered with air conditioning that was marginal. Westfalias are the worst because the A/C outlets are above the rear passenger's heads and so the best you can hope for in the driver or passenger seat is to have the back if your head cold.

 

We now have a great solution that gives you heat and A/C at the dash outlets, the floor and the defrost vents. Two additional rectangular vents are installed in the dash face and can be aimed where you want them.

Unlike the Vanagon original, but like most all modern cars, the system has air blending control so you can control the temperature of the air flow for comfort year-round. The output, whether heat or A/C, can be directed to the floor, defrost or the dash outlets. The system is capable of excellent defrosting using the evaporator to remove moisture. All the controls including the temperature and the fan speed are infinitely variable.

 

The air is recycled interior air so the A/C is most effective. Outside air can be introduced with the windows if desired.

Dash AC controls


We also offer a climate control option to make the system even more modern. We offer two models, the DCC-2500 1-knob with digital display and the DCC-3000 3-knob style interface.

These interfaces have up to 6 temperature sensors to provide a more consistent and accurate cabin temperature. With the variety of backlight options and knob styles you can get the look and control style you want.

Dash AC controls

We are offering this installation in our shop for any Vanagon with any engine. If you have A/C already, the condenser in front of the radiator can be reused, as can the A/C compressor if it is in good condition.

 

The cost is $3995, plus the cost of a compressor and condensor if those are needed.

 

Options, labor included:

  • Mechless bluetooth receiver for center mounting: $195
  • Climate control for precise temperature and comfort: $599

 

Please note: If you have extra equipment in or on the dash (gauges, cruise control, etc) there may be extra labor for the installation.
