    Disabling AC when defrosting

    I hate having to run the AC compressor when defrosting. Most other cars I've had allow for independent switching of AC irrespective of ventilation mode, but not the WRX. Has anyone figured out how to disable the automatic switching of the compressor when in defrost mode? I'd still like to be able to invoke the compressor, but only when I think it's necessary.

    You have to take out the radio so that you can gain access to the HVAC controls. You'll see a microswitch near the control dial that controls where the air goes. You can either try to remove the switch or just cut the wire going to it. I just cut the wire. You can still turn on the A/C by hitting the A/C button if you need it.
