I heard some where (a certain Lada forum..) that Lada Canada (or woz it individual dealerships?) installed some air conditioning systems in Lada vehicles. Does anybody know anything about this, any one got an example kicking around? What I would like to know is what manufacturer & model of AC was used, and were they ever used in the Niva? Also was this AC system used in western vehicles and potentially easier to find when raiding the junkyard?

Of course with temps shooting up to four gazillon degrees in the past few days has got me thinking about an AC for the Niva...

My scrounging & scavenging cousins who prowl around Western Manitoba's fields (and junkyards) will be furnished this info and if they find something...

thanks in adavance

I have never found (or heard of) any Ladas with A/C in Canada.
If A/C was installed, it was inevitably done so at the dealership, and most likely using domestic parts.

If what applied to my Skoda also applies to Lada, then a Canadian-market "luxury" option would have been sourced from a GM or AMC/Renault vehicle.

The only Canadian Lada model that i am aware of with A/C was the Sagona sedan and i think it was a dealer deal.

Send Madman a message. He has/had an A/C compressor on his Niva for On-Board Air. It wouldn't take much to copy his mounting bracket. Only trouble is finding space in the cabin for the evaporator.

OR............ Razz
