AC Evaporator fixed.

I posted a while ago that I was planning to replace the AC evaporator. Well I finally go thte time and let me say it was a pain. I managed to find some guidelines on the net. Although it took half of the day and a lot of cursing and a few beers, It saved me almost $1000. AC has been cold for almost 3 weeks now. If anyone has a question just post it and I'll try to help. It is a pain in the neck, but it is doable for someone with some knowlege.

I, and I think most everyone else here, would be really interested in a detailed breakdown of the process. Also, how did you determine that is was your evaporator that was faulty? I suspect that my evap is the source of my A/C failure as well, but I'd hate to go through all the trouble of replacing it only to find that the problem lies elsewhere.

I'll get a complete breakdown of the process, unfortunatly I didn't take any pictures because I just wanted to get it done. As for determining the cause, I had a leak test done on it and they couldn't find anything wrong with the hoses or compressor etc, so they said it was probably the evaporator. After some research I concluded that most of these Jeeps and Chryslers had this problem. When I finally got it out there was oil all over the place, and you could tell that it was leaking. I can't do much more tonight to fill everyone in, cause I have a physics final tomorrow.

I didn't realize this was still in MY Favorites. These are the complete step by step instructions that I believe were published by Jeep. Any questions just let me know.

Do you suspect that the new evaporator will last longer than the crummy factory one?
