Hello. My name is Chuck and I owned a radiator and air conditioning repair shop for 20 years. The answer to your question is the whole dash board assembly. You need to remove everything to gain access to the evap core. I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news .At my shop everybody wanted their a/c fixed but nobody wanted to pay the price and I can't blame them. I charged 800 to 900 bucks complete for this job and the chrysler dealer charged about 1200 plus for the same work. Good luck.

How do you install a a/c evaporator for a 2000 plymouth voyager

A simple answer is if you can't see the hvac box in the engine compartment, you have to remove the dash to get it out from the inside.
You would need a shop manual and the necessary tools to disassemble the heater-a/c box and remove the evap core after removing the dash.

No. But if your that far into the engine it is very little more that you need to remove to replace it. If it has never been replaced and you have more than 50,000 miles I would recommend replacing it.

You will need to remove the whole cluster and replace it, the whole assembly just unpluges and comes out. You can buy used or new. Just remove all trim pieces and the bolts holding it in place you will have to shift your trans. into N or lower gear if automatic, also if it has ajustable stearing you will need it to be as low as possible. Buying a manuel will help you with diagrams and other useful info.

Make a drawing of where the belt and pulleys are before you remove the belt. You won't need a diagram,you will have made your own and be done before you ever find one,unless you have a shop manual already.

Evaporator core

This is a very involved procedure! I just changed the evaporator core ($83 with shipping from Ebay) on my 1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager and it took me 10 hours. The quote from the repair shop was $800 - $1000 for labor alone! Parts that must be changed also are the receiver/drier (next to the radiator). Other parts that should be changed are the expansion valve (on the firewall) and all the O-rings. The system should be flushed and must be vacuumed down and serviced. It's also a good idea to remove the compressor, drain the oil, and look for any signs of damage - such as bits of teflon or a gray-black sludge. Don't forget to add oil to the system or you'll be needing a new compressor in no time. The oil capacity is 9 oz. and 34 oz. of R-134a.

I found this posting of photos and instructions and couldn't have changed the evap without them. Special thanks to the Dodge forum, Mr. Mahoney and Dodge Tech. Here's the link:

Some notes, as the instructions are somewhat ambiguos:

1. VERY IMPORTANT TIME SAVER: The steering column, instrument panel and dash all come out as a single unit! In the photos Mr. Mahoney disassembled way more than he had to. The instructions may be interpreted incorrectly and you'd be tempted to separate the steering column from the dash, or remove the instrument bezel, or the hvac controls. This is totally unnecessary! Just take your time and look at everything and check and double-check what needs removed/disconnected. Also, the step where it says to remove the nuts from the steering column at the die cast brake pedal support - those are the ones (4) that go forward to the bracket on the firewall, NOT the 4 nuts that go up to the dash! Again, the steering column comes out with the dash as a unit.

2. Some things left out of the steps: Disconnecting the parking brake light wire, disconnecting the blower fan wires, and removing the one hidden bolt from the bottom of the plenum. That bolt is near the floor, just the the left of center, and holds the bottom of the plenum to the firewall.

3. I found it much easier to get access to the engine side of the firewall by removing the alternator. This gives more room to get at the expansion valve and the 3 nuts that hold the plenum to the firewall.

4. Once you get the dash all the way out, and the plenum removed it's about 15 mins to half an hour to change the evaporator. Isn't that ironic?

I hope I haven't left anything out, and that this helps you. Let me know if there's anything else I can help with.
