HVAC controler swap

I have a 2004 concorde LX with the standard dial temperature/ac controls. Will the digital ones from the concorde limiteds plug right in? Any year concerns?

pull dash, swap entire upper and lower harness and replace the blower resistor. I know: I've seen me do it. Can be done in a day!!

No question whether I can do it or not, the issue is this is my beater car, I don't feel like putting the time and $$ into it, when I have other things to do. Hence the reason for the sale.

Thanks for the info though.

Just out of curiosity, pull the whole dash or just the instrument cluster, and radio console?

The entire dash has to come out, the whoooole thing, and the dash harness swapped from the donor car. It's a bit of an ordeal.

Hence the reason I am out. If I had another reason to pull the dash I would probably do this. This is a 2004 LX I really don't expect to have the car more than 3 years anyway. I was hoping the HVAC change would be plug and play. Oh well!

I think the only more complicated swap on these cars would be the engine

I just put reman heads on a few weeks back. It wasn't a bad ordeal, basically a long day job. I had about 10 hours in it.
