Hi all, I'm new to the world of discovery's so appologies if i sound stupid at any point. I have a 200 v8i which is great apart from no air con, and after a trip to the safari park with the kids i decided something had to be done about it. I managed to get an air con system out of a 300 v8 and after a couple of hours pulling my dash out iv realised it wont fit behind the 200 series dash. So my question is can i fit a 300 dash into my 200 and would this allow me to fit the air con.

thanks in advance for any help.

In Theory I wouldn't see why u would not be able to fit a 300tdi dash into the 200tdi as I doubt landrover would have gone to the trouble of changing to many brackets/mounts behind the dash. However I reckon it would still be a lot of work with all the ancilaries i.e vents for normal air and also wiring coming in from different locations/sizes and also around the centre console area/gearbox tunnel as they are different boxes. Personnally I would look to swap your 300tdi aircon setup for that from a 200tdi, It may require you to add some funds as less 200tdi's had AC but I doubt it would cost more than the time and money to source and install a 300tdi dash.

Hope this helps.

I have just removed all aircon components from my 200tdi, and considered swapping to a 300 style dash as I preferred the setup, but had a look and the work involved and decided against it! judging by the price of old 200tdi vehicles it wouldn't cost much to get all the aircon parts required from a breaker 200 and fitting is quite simple once the dash and centre trunking is out, I would suggest doing that. Hope this helps

I have just been offered an air con system thats apparently from a 200 tdi but after asking a few questions hes told me the blower motor sits on the side of the heater box which to me sugests that its from a 300 as my 200 (non air con) has the motor on the top. if anyone could tell me the differences between the 200 and 300 it would be a great help.

thanks in advance

Mike
