So I have an 18 R, with the dual climate control knobs. Is this just a plug and play with slight coding for me? I "should" have all the sensors installed already correct?
This bothered me enough to purchase a NAR Climatronic unit (max A/C). Did not have any problem accessing adaptations and changing retention of drivers seat.With VAG China unit unable to access adaptations using Vagcom. To change adaptations you need to first enter security code which is 20103 for HVAC 08 Controller, but this unit does not accept that security code. I wanted to access in order to access adaptations to change the retention of drivers seat heater level from 10 min to active, so it keeps last setting when car is started. So that is another limitation.
The clean air is for the air quality sensor. If you get one and wire it up when you press the clean air it should allow you to pull air from out side until the quality sensor reacts to outside pollution and auto sets recirc.I noticed the AliExpress variant has 'Clean Air' button on the right. Not sure what it does, but just so you know - when it comes from factory it comes with a 'Max A/C' button. Very useful for hot countries like mine (Israel).
Sets temperature to lowest setting and turns on fan to max.

'Internal Temperature' is actually a sensor inside of the heater control panel, in the very middle of the fan speed knob there's a black circular thing about 5mm in diameter, that's the sensor. If you put your finger on it while monitoring the temperature you'll see it rise..... I did also notice that there is an "internal temperature" setting in VCDS and again that reads a normal value, so I'm not sure if that could be related to the vent temp, but I doubt that.
Nice! For the record, I know it’s been weeks since it was mentioned but the seller for my unit sent me instructions (first option did not work, but the second one he recommended did)
Adapting setting :
Adapt the air flow direction (from air vent)
press AC button 8 and button 3 , the indicate light will blinking ,if the setting is done , the indicate light will illumination as normal .
Adaptor air compressor
Press button 8 and 16 for a few seconds , the indicate light will illumination . and the setting is done .
If the compressor running in first time , press button 8 and 16 for five seconds . the indicate light will illumination at same time, the adapting setting is done . air condition AC can work as normal .
This time the indicate light will not blinking , you need press 30 seconds ,then switch off by “off” button , and switch on AC to check if the compressor is working . if the setting is not working , please try more time for operation of adaptor air compressor
1 use keys to open fire And hold the third button ‘3 ’above and AC key‘ 8 ’more than ten seconds, until the air conditioning automatically stop,
2 at the same time Hold down the after the wind hot keys ‘16 ’and of AC key‘ 8’, more than ten seconds, until the air conditioning automatically stops
Until the air conditioning automatically stop.According to the above two steps air conditioning reset is complete, function normal.

If the previous operation failed, use this instruction to reset the activation.
Step 1: the car starts, blow the face  and ac  simultaneously press and hold for 10 seconds ，to activate the compressor.
Step 2: Press the rear glass defrost key [16 key] and ac [8 key] simultaneously for 2 minutes. 【Uninterrupted time】
Step 3; After the ac light is on, turn on air conditioner, turn on ac, start the car travel few kilometers, solve the problem

Assuming you’re referring to the first one(?)ebay listing said it was out of a Golf R

When I performed compressor run-in, the only feedback I recall was AC light came on. Previous to performing compressor run in AC light and AC function did not work.Hi guys,
I finished this retrofit too. I used the original panel 5G0907044T (not the Chinese one). I performed the Flap resync by pressing the button 8 + button 3, like explained above and that seemed to work. However the compressor run-in (button 16 + button 8) did not work. I tried both the options described above and also tried button 17 + button 8, but no blinking or any other feedback from the panel. Even if that did not work, everything seems to work correctly, but when scanning the car with OBDeleven I get the errors bellow. Almost half of those errors show "No basic setting", is that related to the fact that the compressor run-in did not work? Is there another way to perform that? I tried using OBDeleven to reset to the basic settings, but it did not work, all the options in there are set to "not active" and you cannot change it to "active". Any help will be appreciated.
Oke... mine worked right away. It actually does everything it should do. But I can't code the basic settings with ODIS or OBDeleven...When I performed compressor run-in, the only feedback I recall was AC light came on. Previous to performing compressor run in AC light and AC function did not work.
