But changing the hose from the vents to to the outlets takes a contortionist. On that set. You better not get them on the wrong side of a wire our you got to start over again. That is tight under that dash

Back together, the Buick a/c and heat control is supposed to give you a lot more functions than the Caddy. The back half are identical and plugs are the same. You need to add the upper mounting tabs to the Buick which has tabs on the side. I will cut them off the caddy control and give it a shot.

Did not noticed part of the black dash had been hacked. Had to splice in a section . Cut the ears off of the Buick controller and the top of the caddy. Glued that to the Buick controller. Had to shim the mount a little to bring the face plate straight. Once it is back together will have to see if it works as advertised.
