A/C Evaporator Core Replacement
NOTE: LHD type is shown, RHD type is symmetrical.
|2.||Remove the bolt, then disconnect the A/C line from the evaporator core.|
|4.||Remove the bolt and the ECM/PCM bracket (A). Remove the self-tapping screws and the expansion valve cover (B).|
|5.||Carefully pull out the evaporator core without bending the pipes.|
|6.||Install the core in the reverse order of removal, and note these items:|
- If you're installing a new evaporator core, add refrigerant oil (KEIHIN SP-10).
- Replace the O-rings with new ones at each fitting, and apply a thin coat of refrigerant oil before installing them. Be sure to use the right O-rings for HFC-134a (R-134a) to avoid leakage.
- Immediately after using the oil, reinstall the cap on the container, and seal it to avoid moisture absorption.
- Do not spill the refrigerant oil on the vehicle; it may damage the paint; if the refrigerant oil contacts the paint, wash it off immediately.
- Charge the system.
