[DML] Re: lower evap casing

I changed my evaporator last summer, because I accidentally drilled a 
hole in one of the metals tubes that extend through the firewall.  Let 
me tell you, I was under the ignorant illusion that it was not a big 
deal, and that all I needed to do to replace the evaporator was to 
simply "drop" the lower half of the plastic casing that's under the 
passenger side of the dash.  Was I ever wrong!  Using a flashlight and 
mirror, and contorting my body into shapes I thought impossible, I 
successfully removed about 10 of the 12 or so screws that held the two 
plastic halves together.  The remaining screws cannot be removed 
without dropping the entire evaporator casing, as they are located on 
the top half of the box.  Feeling defeated, but grateful for this 
Yahoo group, I realized that the center console and a good portion of 
the dash needed to be removed in order to get the casing out.  After a 
couple of days of careful disassembly, I got it out, cursed briefly at 
the two or three srews that were on the top of the box(I swear, I 
heard little "nah, nah, nah, nah, nah" coming from those screws!). 
Once you get the box out, there must be some way to ensure water 
drains properly from the exist hole.

Good luck on your "dash assault".
