FYI for anybody that wants to do this, a right angle pick is handy to pry the connector tab up enough to pull the connector, I think it'd be difficult to get it off with just fingers.

Thanks for the info Sniper, +1
Actually I did the same thing you did, it took me about 10 mins at sundown while drizzling. The HVAC cables were holding you back, there's a tab on top you can undo to release them, I highlighted the other guy's how-to in the first post.

IDK, I imagine the '12 is completely computer controlled. Just my guess...

I seen a guy make a module and a custom A/C button to do the same thing for an Escape. So maybe it can be done on a '12, but it might not be this simple.
