What is HVAC trim?

HVAC trim is the one-piece plastic unit that fits around the heater and A/C panels on your Hyundai. The purpose of the trim is to cover the raw edges of the unit, providing a neater look and preventing accidental damage due to impact or spills. In many cases, the operating unit for the heat and A/C features an indented edge section where the trim snaps into place, creating a seamless result. On digital touch displays, the trim will surround the screen.

What are the functions of Hyundai A/C and heater controls?

The A/C and heating units in Hyundai cars and trucks handles every part of the vehicles temperature management system. Common controls include:

  • Temperature: Enables you to set the warmth or coolness of the air
  • Fan: Changes the speed of the air
  • Mode: These switches direct hot or cold air to specific vents in your vehicle. Depending on your Hyundai model, you might have individual buttons or a selector knob. Some models also offer buttons for windshield and rear-window defrosters.
  • A/C: These knobs turn the A/C system on and off
  • Dual: This switch engages the dual climate control system, so the driver and passenger can set different temperature levels. Dual units are only compatible with specific vehicles, so it’s important to check your vehicle’s specifications.
How do you install a control panel?

Most Hyundai units mount on the dashboard of your car or truck. In many cases, you can simply remove the trim, connect the heater units, and bolt the unit in place. The process may vary based on any upgrades you may have made, so it’s important to check your manual for specifics.
