Project Kancil: L5 Air Con Controller Issue

During the time I serviced the air condition, I noticed that the air condition controller did not function properly. I managed to find another controller to replace the damage issue but it took me a while to get it and the I bought for RM60. 

Although it is not that expensive but get my hand on one replacement is tough enough for me. So I try to post here to ask around whether there is any replacement for the air condition fan speed module. You may take a look at the video on how the controller behave now. And please contact me if you have the particular module for sale. I would like to replace it and make it as spare.

Project Kancil: How to Improve Air Con Cooling System

Well, everyone knows that the main problem of a Perodua Kancil is the cooling system which is not able to satisfy almost everybody who owns a Perodua Kancil. This does happen to me as an owner of a Perodua Kancil with a L5 engine converted.

Many say that changing to a L5 dashboard may help a little compare to using a Perodua Kancil due to the air con vents are placed way farther compare to L5 dashboard. However some may concluded that it is not helping enough. Let's agree to disagree on this topic.
