Neon Evaporator

parollback on Tue July 01, 2008 7:15 AM User is offline

Year: 1995
Make: Dodge
Model: Neon
Engine Size: 4 cyl
Refrigerant Type: R134a
Pressure Low: 0
Pressure High: 0
Country of Origin: United States

I about to tackle a project on a Dodge Neon and was wondering if anyone has any experience replacing the evaporator. I looked at the inside of the car for about 2 seconds and it looks like I have to pull a lot of stuff out to get to it. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks

If it's anything like installing a aftermarket a/c system which it is as it is a drop in coil. It's very fun as you pull most of the dash and remove the entire heater/ac case assembly.


When considering your next auto A/C purchase, please consider the site that supports you:

Oh yeah, lots of "fun".
That job starts at the center console, which must come out to get the rest of the dash out. Left & right trim panels, top cover, steering column cover, heater control, center bezel, etc. all must come out. Once the dash is gone, you can get to the heater core & A/C. The heater core must be disconnected in the engine compartment, as well as the evaporator.

Once you get the heater core / evaporator assembly out of the car, it is a bench job to open the case & replace the evaporator.

I would strongly recomend replacing the heater core while you have access. An alldata subscription for this vehicle would be a big help too.

Thanks for the advice. Sounds like I've got my work cut out for me.
