It's not that bad, flag time to remove and replace it 2.3 hrs, no need to remove the dash, just unscrew small screw's around housing and split case apart.

I have a trouble code P0449


Most of the vent valves are not hard to replace. They are located near the fill tube for the gas tank. Most cars are behind the wheel well. I can usually change them in about 1/2 hour.

How to replace evaporator core on a 2009 bmw 328i


This evaporator takes a professional technician over 15 hours of hard labor to replace. Hurray for BMW. This is planned obsolescence. They figure if they make it hard enough and expensive enough to work on eventually you'll buy another new car. How right they are. People who buy new cars don't care. They just keep buying this junk. The do it yourself type person should not attempt this proceedure. You'd be asking for big trouble.

A/c blower doesn't blow very hard


Sometimes, over a period of time,things or dirt and dust have accumujlated on dash and eventually gets blown down the defroster ducts and builds up on ac evaporator while there is moisture on it and the combonation of the two plugs up the evaporator causing a huge lack of air flow at vents.The combination of the two can cause almost cement making it very hard to clean up.I have actually had to replace quite a few evaporators because of the time consuming clean ups.

My ac is cold and is basically fine. but the problem is that it doesnt blow hard. it sounds like it is but you barley feel anything. what do i need to replace so it blows hard?


For this issue, have the evaporator cooling unit cleaned. The reason why it doesn't blow hard is the dust and dirt are covering the evaporator cooling unit. The dirt and dust are also very harmful to the cooling unit. Have it cleaned and you will see the difference. Hope this helps.

The AC evaporator is leaking on my 97 grand cherokee. Floor boards full of water. The evaporator was replaced 2 years ago. What should I do?


The drain tube for the evaporator case is plugged with various debris which allows the normal accumulation of condensed water to overflow the case onto the floorboard. Run a brush or similar tool into the tube which should immediately drain the cavity. If you catch the water in a pan, inspect it for debris. This should work ok for a year or so, then re-clean the drain as needed. The more the AC is run, the more debris will accumulate. Hope this helps!

replace you fuel system evaporative filter (charcoal canister), the gas fumes evaporated from the fuel tank are pooling in the filter causing very rich mixture and a hard start.

Where exactly is the orifice tube located at on a 1996 (DOHC v6)?


it's in the high pressure liquid line.

A/C Evaporator Core Orifice The A/C evaporator core orifice (19D990) should be replaced whenever the A/C compressor (19703) is replaced for lack of performance (internal damage). The A/C evaporator core orifice, located in the condenser to evaporator tube (19835), cannot be serviced in detail as a component of the line. If replacement is necessary, follow the procedure outlined for Liquid Line Removal and Installation. An orifice tube replacement service kit may be used as an optional service procedure. Refer to Section 12-00 for information regarding the use of an A/C Evaporator Core Orifice Replacement Kit E5VY-19D695-A.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A/C Evaporator Core Orifice Replacement Kit Installation
  1. Discharge A/C refrigerant system. Refer to System Discharging and Recovery as outlined.
  1. Remove condenser to evaporator tube (19835) from vehicle.
  1. Locate A/C evaporator core orifice (19D990) by three indentations or a circular recess in metal portion of the condenser to evaporator tube.


    A/C Evaporator Core Orifice Location

  1. Note angular position of ends of condenser to evaporator tube so that it can be reassembled in correct position.
  1. Cut a 63.5 mm (2.5 inch) section from condenser to evaporator tube at A/C evaporator core orifice location. Do not cut closer than 25.4 mm (1 inch) from start of a bend in tube.

  1. Remove contaminants from the two pieces of the condenser to evaporator tube.
  1. NOTE: The inlet half of the condenser to evaporator tube will be positioned against the A/C evaporator core orifice tabs when correctly assembled.

    Lubricate fitting with clean refrigerant oil and assemble orifice tube kit (with A/C evaporator core orifice installed) to condenser to evaporator tube. Make sure flow direction arrow is pointing toward evaporator end of the condenser to evaporator tube, and taper of each compressor ring is toward compression nut.
