2006 Climate Control Swap?

Is it feasible or even possible to swap the automatic climate control into a vehicle with the manual climate control?

Yes, but it isnt easy. Heater box is different, vacuum to activate mode doors is completely different, exterior ambient temp sensor needs to be installed, EATC blower fan is PWM controlled instead of a blower resistor, lots of woring needs to be added, etc, etc, etc. Probably easier and cheaper to sell your current ride and buy one with EATC.

As Jeff says, if you don't mind pulling the dash out of the car, then it's possible. I can't imagine it possibly being worth it though. The auto system is pretty nice for the age of the vehicles it was installed in, but the manual also works just fine.
