I've got a 97 Sentra GLE and was wondering if anyone knew where to find some kind of directions/instructions on how to swap the positions of the hvac controls and the radio deck. There was a few postings on a threads about it, but no real answer on how to do it.

i've been all over google, yahoo, & mamma engines, as well as some mod sites & couldn't find shit... help a guy out.

Have you tried opening the dash and seeing if you can simply swap their positions? Seems like the next logical step since you can't find instructions.

i've opened it up and have taken it apart to see how it could work. if nothing else the hvac assembly needs to be cut down at the rear right to fit into the narrower opening at the bottom of the console where... even if i can get that done i'm not all that sure that the screws will match up... might have to rig something of a housing mechanism... but i haven't really studied it too much.

anyone seen it done before? or have any ideas?

relocating

i've pulled out my stereo and hvac today. it looks like my JVC stereo is too long to fit on the top and looks like i need to do alotta dremeling around the hvac brackets. i've also noticed a horizontal metal pipe behind the hvac switch. still deciding if i should go forth with this project.

Dont get discoraged!!!!!

It will work with a little bit of tinkering and time..... Sit back for a couple of days and search the hardware stores! They have predrilled brackets and other hardware that will work. When I transfered the hvac to below the stereo I thaught about it for a month or two to get it right the first time. All I had to do was disconect the Hvac trim some off of the brackets and use a 1" spring and a 1 1/2"screw to get it into place with the factory bolt placement. this did require me to dremmel off part of the stereo mounting bracket to get it to fit flush..... I might be doing this mod in the near future to a freinds 1.6 b14 and i wil take pics and do a how to if anyone is interested....
