BMW E24 Sanden Conversion Kit
NOTE: Currently, this kit only supports models with rear A/C and cooler box; however, M635csi and standard A/C variants are coming soon!
Designed and engineered for the enthusiast, this conversion kit offers a complete, plug-and-play upgrade to the A/C system in the E24 to R134a using a modern Sanden type compressor, new R134a lines, and all the necessary supporting bracketry. This upgrade will result in colder A/C vent temperatures, less strain on the engine, and a more efficient and durable A/C system.

This product requires no R&D, and is easily reversible using professionally engineered components, OEM-like hardware, and durable replacement parts resulting in a trouble-free installation that can be completed in under 4 hours by a professional. It is designed to tuck neatly around the factory heat shield(s) while providing ample clearance around both US and euro headers and OEM brake ducting/undertray.
This kit assumes your vehicle is stock and still retains all original equipment. It is designed to use the OEM condenser and aux fan, high-pressure switch (on drier), and high-pressure drier return lines, along with proper functionality of the evaporator, expansion valve, and HVAC sensors.
DISCLOSURE: It is imperative that the system be flushed and decontaminated prior to installing the new components. Evacuation of Freon (R12 or R134a), must be done by a certified A/C shop as its chemicals are toxic and harmful to the environment.
