you would need to convert it to multi V belt - rip your dash out for the evaporator and adjust the loom to suit the new aplication.

Mine took 40 hours to do with all T4 parts - How much do you want air con?

I have to put an AC on my van. Right now I only have the compressor attach to the engine. Can someone point me the parts that I need. Can I put an evaporator on the airbox or do I have to replace the airbox?
My van it's a 1994 model with a 1.9TDI

I bought a universal evaporator from a local A/C specialist. I then grafted it into my existing heaterbox with Aluminium sheeting and sikoflex,

Even made it look nice with some black paint!!

Have a look here and see my atttempt - (and it still works)

Zmok thank you for the link. I don't know if I will buy a box with evaporator from a Caravelle or do what you did.

Phil I can't find a T4 westfalia with AC in Portugal. The T4 westfalia are hard to find. I think that there must be less that 4. I only saw 3 on the last 10 years.
