Default 06 WRX TR console in 02/03 WRX

Okay now I read and searched and found out you have to re wire the HVAC since it has that auto heat **** anyways. I was riding in my buddies 06 TR today and noticed his is just like the same as 02 03, just has the style of the 04+ meaning it doesnt have the automatic temp stuff. So I was thinking, what would I need to get and would I need to custom fab anything for 06 dash to 02/03 dash? (console)

The console should be interchangeable but 05+ WRX/ STi are auto HVAC. 02-04 WRX have cables. You will need the motor, wiring, computer and maybe other stuff.

This should help get you started. As should this and this.

They (the threads/posts) don't answer your question specifically in one post but you can piece them together and get what you want. Next time, search harder.

Okay like I said, I did search and seen ALL of those posts you listed. But, those have the auto climate like I said in the first post, the 06 TR DOES NOT come with autoclimate....

Best way to tell is to take 30 minutes and pull your console and his. Take a look at the cables and wireing harnesses and see what they look like.

OK, you are right. Just so everybody is clear... you want to install a 2006+ TR/2.5i/etc. center console and climate control in a 2002/03 WRX... correct?

It is less of a deal than trying to convert it to an HVAC system like the 2006 WRX and STI have. It is hard to say... both of the cars(your wrx and the 2006 TR) have cable controls and very basic fan controls... but there will probably be issues with any changes that were made internally as well as the external ones we all are aware of.

I would suggest going to a Subaru dealer and looking at the parts schematic to see any differences. Or if you know someone with a TR... take both trim pices off of your cars and have a look. Takes only a few minutes.

personally I think the older style dash is better.. it has a little area in front of the shifter where you can put stuff... cell phone, etc. On the 2005+ models there is nothing, so I end up using one of the cup holders... and then you are back to where you started!

Thank you. I'll prolly talk to Jaimie/Subiegal and see what she knows since she works at Subaru. The TR actually does have that little cubby where the ashtray and cigarette lighter is too, and that little cover over it. Also the TR has the 2 cup holders next to the ebrake which I also like. Or were you talking about the little indent thing on the 02-04?

Apparently you didn't click the very first link. If you did you would have seen that the OP updated his MY03 with the new look, including manual HVAC controls.

Like I said, the links don't answer your question exactly but the collective information can be pooled to get what you want. For example, the list of part numbers will be invaluable during your swap.
