The easiest way to remove the radio from a 1997 Acura TL is from the front. Assuming you know your anti-theft radio code, disconnect the negative side of your battery. See the last paragraph if you have lost your anti-theft radio code.
Next, remove the plastic wood trim from the dashboard surrounding the radio. To do this open the glove box, reach up inside and push out on one of clips holding the wood trim, as it comes loose grasp the trim from the front and carefully pull the trim until each clip unsnaps from the dash. The attached Heater/AC control panel above the radio comes off with the wood trim, so just unclip the 2 wire harnesses from the back and set trim panel aside.
Next, using a phillips screw driver, remove the 4 screws holding the black plastic radio frame into the dash, then pull the radio forward to remove it. Disconnect the 2 wire harnesses and antenna cable from the back of the radio to complete the removal. If you are putting in a replacement radio, just loosen the two small bolts holding the radio on the back of the frame, and then slide the radio out of the frame.

The radio and the whole dashboard does not need to come off. Remove center console passenger side trims and remove the glove box, remove cabin filter and u will be able to see the valve, loosen Ac lines from firewall and couple of screws from the dash and u will be able to pull out the the whole evaporator with the valve attach to it REPLACE EXPANSION VAVLE.

Where to locate the ac expansion valve for 2003 acura 3.2 tl


  1. Remove the filter lid (A), then pull out the dust and pollen filters (B).

  2. Pull out the evaporator temperature sensor (C) from the evaporator fins.

  3. Remove the screws, carefully separate the upper housing (D) from the lower housing (E), then remove the evaporator core (F).

  4. If necessary, remove the expansion valve (G). Use a second wrench to hold the other fitting on the valve so the evaporator line won't twist. Leave the first fitting loosely connected so you can use it to hold the valve while you loosen the second fitting.

  5. Reassemble the evaporator in the reverse order of disassembly, and note these items:

    • Replace all 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.
    • Install the capillary tube (H) directly against the outlet line, and wrap it with electrical tape (I).
    • Reinstall the evaporator temperature sensor in its original location.
    • Make sure no air is leaking from the upper housing and the lower housing fitting.

Need replace expansion valve on 1997 Acura TL. Can anyone help?


The expansion valve is located within the passenger compartment, driver's side. You need to remove a white plastic piece, called a pipe cover. Once that is out the way, the expansion valve is hidden behind the large, rubber covers. Cut the zip ties to get to it.
