SOURCE: replace expansion valve

Hi Tresap,
The only expansion valve that I can think of that you may like to replace is on the air conditioning unit....This valve is found usualy mounted onto the AC unit....You'll have to remove the dash board and centre consul....This is qute a job....You should then see the expantion valve on the cabin side of the AC housing....where the pipes go thru into the engine compartment....NOW HOLD EVERYTHING.....before you can remove the valve you need to depressurize the AC unit....That should be done by an expert....The gas is dangerous and you must wear safety googles at ALL times....Once you have removed the valve, you must seal the system so that as little moisture as possible enters the system....If it is left open, you'll have to replace the dryer unit too....when you've finished your replacement, assembly is the opposite as disassembly.....You'll then need to have the system recharged....Don't try to engage it until that has been done....It wont work even if you tried ,as there are pressur switches which will inhibit the opperation....If you have had practice, it will take about three quarters of a day......if not, three or four days

Hope that this helps you

Best regards Johngee10

AC Problem in my mitsubishi eclipse spyder 2002 GT

Sounds like the cooling fan motor,or motors,are not working.Check the relays,and fuses for the cooling fans.If the ac is on,look to see if the cooling fan,or fans come on.If they do ,then most likely have an enternal ac system problem.The expansion valve is the most likely problem,or possible,the dryer.Have the ac system checked to see if it is low,or if the low side is going into a vacuum,if it is going into a vacuum,replace the expansion valve.First check to see if the cooling fans are working with ac on.If I can help,let me know.>>>
