    2017 climate control - cables or automatic?

    I want to be as prepared as I can be before swapping out the head unit in my 2017 crosstrek base model without navigation.

    Can anyone tell me if I will find cables behind the climate control panel or if it will be an electrical harness back there? I keep hearing about the electrical climate control but I can't tell what model that is associated with.

    Thanks.

    The base models are cable operated with an electrical harness for the buttons. One cable for the temp, and another cable for the position. Both are pretty easy to remove and put back on.

    Alright, I screwed up. I don't have a base model - because it is automatic. I went cheap on the trim but my wife wanted automatic... Which makes it a Premium.
    Will the premium have the cable operated climate control?

    Looks like probably yes:

    Just leaving this here for anyone else who's wondering.

    I have a Limited model with auto climate control (7 speed fan)- no cables.

    The Premium models have manual climate control (4 speed fan) - cables.
