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

How do I replace a broken valve cover bolt on a 96 honda accord?


remove cover again, drill small hole into bolt if it is broken off too close to get with vice grips, use ez out very casrefully.


place some sort of rags or towels to catch metal shavings, can also spay shave cream on top of rags or towels to help catch metal shavings.


these bolts are only ten mm so only take about 7 pounds of torque. tighten in criss coss fashion little by little evenly.

Shouldn't have an expansion valve. There should be an orifice tobe in the refrigeration line before it enters evaporator usually near firewall. Just my opinion.

What is procedure for replacing expansion valve on a 2002 Honda Accord?


It looks like the blower unit needs to come out, you need a recycling machine and a very accurate evacuation and charging setup to make sure the amount of R134 is correct, as well as the correct oil type and amount that will need to be added to the system once the part is replaced.

Even a couple of ounces off can make the car not cool correctly

Same problem


Check for ac low pressure switch gone bad.If the expansion valve goes bad it will cause that problem,also, make sure there is enough freon in system.If you could get some one to put ac gauges on the vehicle you could tell a lot about the system,It would tell if the low side was too low(bad expansion valve)or if it was too high on the low side or high side (bas expansion valve or block dryer or condenser.

Location of expansion valve


Expansion valve is located passenger dash area , inside the evaporator housing. This is not a repair that can be easily done by a home "do it yourselfer".It requires evacuating the the air condition system of freon is the biggest obsticle doing at home. Rec. taking to a certified a/c repair shop for this repair.

You need to discharge the AC system and remove the evaporator to replace the expansion valve. No two way about it.

No need to remove the dash
