you'll need to change the heaterbox probs. or atleast put all the assosciated wiring and motors on the existing one.
may 99 onwards are AUI update, and use smartshield as AUII and AUIII, but pre may99 use smartlock

because AU1's have smartlock and AU2's have smartshield.. so the electronics might be different.
