Question about 2000 Nissan Altima
Hi, you answered my question about the Altima with the water leak, and you told me to take out and clean the evaporator box. Can you give me any more information on how to do that? I have tried to remove what looks to be some sort of condensation resevoir that is above the glove box (I removed the glove box to access it) and though I've removed every bolt in sight I still can't move this thing! I can't figure out how to remove it. It's frustrating because it seems like a simple problem with a frustratingly difficult solution.
Also, do you know where I might get another ECU that's compatible with my second generation Altima? Do I have to EXACTLY match the numbers on my computer, or can I just come close?
You cant remove it because there are 2 pipes attached to it under the hood. You actually need to recover the R134 out of the A/C system and undo those 2 pipes to get it out. There may by some more screws that hold it in. See if your Altima has a small opening, that may be covered (incabin filter hole) Some 2000 models started coming out with incabin filters and that's how they get replaced. It would be visible since you have the glove box out. You will see a small cover 1 inch wide and about 6-7 inches long. If you don't see anything like that, than you don't have the slot for the filter. If you have the opening, (right above the blower motor) remove the cover and look in the slot. You will see the evaporator and inside of the box and what is in there aka pine needels etc.
As far as the ECM goes, those are car specific and can not be mixed. You need the ECM with the same part number as the one that came with the car originally. Good luck.
