Is it possible to add A/C to an EA82 wagon that didn't come with it?

And, if so, how difficult is it?

The only think keeping my Subaru from being my year round car is the lack of A/C. I don't care too much, but my ferrets have other thoughts.

I know you can, the dealers used to put A/C into cars that didn't get to the lot with it. I assume you could put either the factory or the add-on styles into a non-A/C car, but it would be a real PIA! Especially inside the dash and stuff. You could consider an aftermarket a/c system like the ones they sell for old classic cars and stuff, but I think they are really pricey.

why not just get the complete sutup from a parts car?? seems like a little less hassle to just use something that was made for the car.

The AC systems used to be dealer installed options. All the under dash stuff may already be in the car, not sure how the kit came, but it is a straight bolt in from a doner car.
