Heater control unit replacement

Hi everybody!
I'm from Greece and i bought a mk3 Yaris 2013 imported from French.
A friend of me provided me an electronic (clima) heater control unit. My car has a manual heating control unit! Is there the possibility to replace my manual unit with the automatic one without any modification ? If not ... Can you inform me if l could fit the automatic unit and wchich part will i need in addition?
Thank you in advance!

This was well documented in the forum. Use the search.

The auto climate control require quite a few modifications, and there are control modules that need to be added

The knobs on your Yaris are all linked with cables to the various bits that move. To install the digital HVAC system you need the whole HVAC box under the dash that has the electric servos that move the blend door and mode door. That requires pulling out the whole dashboard.

There isn't any guide. It was done and it also needed a micro controller made by CTScott to work.

I believe the ECM doesn't have what it needs to control everything, and also the mechanical switch is now electronic

microimage is a now defunct competing forum on which the undertaking of manual to digital HVAC was documented. Too bad since it had outlined the trials and tribulations of the conversion in great detail.
