Q: A/C Installation

asked by on

Hello, my car came "prewired" to install an A/C system. I believe it has the evaporator already installed. My question is, besides the installation of compressor, condenser and lines, is there any other change that is needed to be done? I'm not sure if the car came with the 12V cable to feed the compressor, my dash control lacks a A/C button (obviously). Any ideas on the specifics of the installation? Thank you.
My car has a manual transmission.
