Bit of an odd one here, but my 2012 Kia Rio Mk3 doesn't have stock aircon installed and looking to retrofit one.
Wondering if anyone here has any advice or experience on either retrofitting or working on the Kia Rio aircon system.
So far the plan is to buy everything from a wrecked Kia with air con and install it myself.
Any advice or questions just ask.

I'd guess that you'd have massive problems, better just to buy a car with air-con.

Likely to be a huge job with lots of potential for things to go wrong.
The Dash would likely need to be removed to fit the Evaporator and feed the Pipework through the Bulkhead.

If you like the Rio, look at the cost to PX it with a Model 2 or 3. I presume yours is the 1?
It is likely to be the cheaper option.

Thanks for the replies. I could try to part exchange it but will have to look into the cost. Instead of installing a full aircon system, is there anything else I could look at? The USB fan is not working lol
