    The system is completely different, the IHKA has all automatic valves. Here are more than 70 pages describing it. In German language, but the pics will show you.
    Probably then you will give up.

    It take me 2 days . To retro-fit the IHKR with the IHKA you need to take out the front interior ( this was a difficulty ) , the ventilation pipes . Then you need to unscrew 5 screws and voila the old IHKR is free then you need to pull her out and to replace it with the IHKA



    P.S. if you had A/C you need to unscrew the A/C pipe
