back to the '94 chevy evap core......
after getting most of the easy stuff off, is there any reason i cant carefully
cut the rear face off of the plastic housing, slip the evap core straight out
and replace it - (the connections appear to be outside the firwall), then
glue/duct tape/jb-weld the housing back together?????? ( i have a few tools
that could do it easily and safely - like a rotary carving tool, etc - i will
NOT use the sawzall... lol))
i may have to remove the dash to give room to slip it out but that is no issue
at all - been there/done that.
and at 10 yrs and 211K miles, all i want is cool air. i own 3 other vehicles
for other uses... (kids, wife, etc) so i'd like to drive this one myself much
I wouldn't, but if you feel like taking a shortcut who's stopping you. In
my opinion you could cut it out just fine, but getting that piece back on
and completely air and water tight isn't likely. The air leaks will make
the air out of your vents blow warmer, and the condensate that leaks out
will ruin your carpet and rust your floorboards.
If yer' gunna take the dash off anyways, just do it the right way.
hmmm...must be an insult hidden there.... ;-)
thats ok, i can take it. i am sure i sound like i live in a house with tires
but with 2 kids in college and with their cars and insurance to pay for as well
as tuition i am just trying to do things as cheap as i can so i can still
afford a couple of nice surfing vacations each year.....nicaragua in september
If you're pulling the dash:
Split the case with a few bolts, and pull the evaporator the right way. I'm
sure you'll thank yourself when you have adequate cooling, and also no water
dripping on your feet. Also, one more thing, moisture on the damn
windshield. Don't you hate that?
actually, i wasnt planning on pulling the dash otherwise because the alldata
directions dont say to, but we pulled it last week before abandoning the effort
to replace the core.
pardon my ignorance, but what do you mean by "splitting the case with a few
i am not real happy with all data so far - they mention too many parts to be
removed that are not shown in the diagram. for instance, what the hech are
"hinge panel trim pillars" ?
further - they just say "remove center floor air distribution duct"", without
telling you where to disconnect, etc. i already broke part of the heater core
casing because there was a teensy bolt hidden waaaay in the back.....
and come on, duct tape will fix anything! and besides, the damn thing has
dripped water on the passengers feet for 10 yrs... ;-)
The case is under the hood:
In two halves if it's a big bodied car. The hinge panel trim pillars, are
the kick panels and the A-pillar trim panels.
If the body type is what I think you have, the bolts are under the hood. get
a Chilton or Motor manual. the information contained in them is much more
accurate than All data. Mitchell On Demand is the hands down best.
You can buy a whole set up to the 4th quarter of 2003 hacked somewhere for
about $100.00 and some might throw in classic cars too.
But, to not get off of the subject, I had All Data, and ditched it in favor
of Mitchell On Demand!
Sorry for the joke and good luck, give me the specific car, make and model.
Maybe I have the manual?
I hope I can help you in that way?
Now wouldn't this be considered illegal? Your implying that it's a good
thing to source some "hacked" (your words) CD's to this poster.
Weren't you crying about how awful it was that a poster asked for a CarFax
from the group not long ago? And how illegal it would be and it's stealing!
By the way how many faces do you have? I mean besides the one on your
shoulders and the one you sit on? Which are identical by the way. They both
What a putz you are!
they are all over:
Someone was asking for a Car Fax to be ran. I don't buy the CD's personally.
My subscription is on hold, but I never buy hacked CD's.
You can even come look at my thousands of dollars of genuine Micro$oft
