Legacy Manual a/c evaporator swop?

My 1992 Legacy Turbo was fitted with a manual a/c unit when new.
Just wondering if I can swop over my old ac unit which is located under the dash along side the fan & heater unit and replace with an auto a/c unit ?
I only have the manual control for heat direction etc
I'll add photos at the weekend.

Re: 1992 Legacy BC Heater Core replacement part

Part way through the heater matrix change , getting closer to the point where I need to remove the instrument cluster then release the speedo cable to clear the way to remove the whole of the dash to get at the a/c , fan & heater boxes.
I'll let the forum know how it turns out -too cold to work today

Re: 1992 Legacy Sun Roof control box relay issue

Glad to learn mike-tracy you were successful with your sun roof, I've had the whole unit out twice now - 1st time to redo the seal then to attempt a repair.
I'm back to the emergency handle.
I think the ISUZU was marketed as Longhorn in some markets

Re: 20 years of Legacy Central

I enjoy the forum esp. the archive folder, its still a great resource packed full of facts and real life experiences of running an older model Legacy. I'm into my 70's these days and still believe if someone made it I can repair/fix it. In England there are less than 20 BC BF Legacy's left on the ro...

Re: 1992 Legacy BC Heater Core replacement part

Josh, thanks again for your advice & comments , I'm faced with a task I don't relish .
I wanted to check what the access was like if I could lift the old heater core out of the unit by undoing the two metal pipes , none of the UK forum guys have a used heater core unit off the car.
