I have done it before.
My car in Japan didn't have air conditioning.
But the first time I changed the oil I noticed it had an A/C compressor and condenser.
I think what happened was the heat and A/C control stopped working and the last guy just swapped in a non-A/C control module just to have heat in the winter.
So I stated looking for a with-A/C module, or I was going to manually switch the compressor clutch. I found it popped it in there and it worked, the A/C was still charged.
If you want to do it first search for pics. If not buy your self a cheap head unit off eBay or from a junk yard, take it apart, see if it will work. It would be a cool mod if it worked.
If you have to scrap it, resell everything on ebay get your $ back.
But these were simpler cars.
I have modded my leaf and will mod it a lot more in the future.
Modded the evse according to ingineer to run 240v.
Put a trailer hitch on there, spare tire, better LLR tires, brake drag reduction springs.
I'm installing the diesel fired hydronic heater.
