Available for all Vanagons, dash A/C !
For years, Vanagon owners have suffered with air conditioning that was marginal. Westfalias are the worst because the A/C outlets are just 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 yourhead cool.
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.
The full glove box remains available for your storage as does the ash tray.
All the controls including the temperature and the fan speed are infinitely variable. We have endeavored to design a system that betters the original and still looks like it might be a factory installation. This system recirculates inside air so no outside pollution or odors can enter unless you choose to open a window. We also sell a climate control option separately if desired.
We are offering this kit complete with all the parts to do the job yourself. 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 hoses necessary for the A/C system as well as the condenser will vary by vehicle and engine/compressor type.
