Re: [DML] Re: lower evap casing

If water is gettting into the evaporator box from
the outside, then there is a problem with the flap
thing where the air intake is right? In front of the
windshield straight down is where the air for the
vents and A/C comes in and there is supposed to be a
dividing flap or something that does not allow water
to get into the evaporator box. If water is going
into the evaporator box, then something is probably
blocking the passageway for water; leaves, debris,
etc. I would remove the screen covering that and
then check that area out before tackleing the
evaporator box.

Believe me, I just had to replace my
evaporator after breaking the hose leading to the
accumulator and though it may sound simple enough,
it's still no picnic. I did it over several days
because it was so frustrating. I dont know what was
harder, getting it all out or getting it all back
in, either way I hope I never have to again.
Cleaning out the intake is definately easier and is
definately worth a try. I remember washing my car
once, later to find water dripping from the fan
motor. I removed the hose coming out the side of the
fan, and water just came running out.

Good Luck!

  The only question I would ask is how much do you
  drive the car. As a

  daily driver, the A/C seems to be a problem. My
  understanding is all

  the dirt and gunk gets in there from where the
  windshield meets the

  front hood. If the car is kept in the garage and
  used only

  occasionally, then it might not have A/C issues.
  But if a daily

  driver or subjected to the elements, it's a
  constant battle. I will

  say I could be wrong, just my experience and
  observations talking

  with other owners. I'm glad it's worked for you.
