I have pulled the evaporator out of my 95 Camry to more thoroughly flush it. The exterior was dirty. I blew it off and would like to clean it off with some water and soap. However the Toyota Shop Manual says:'
1. INSPECT FINS FOR BLOCKAGE
If the fins are clogged, clean them with compressed
NOTICE: Never use water to clean the evaporator.
It seems pretty clear that they don't want me to use water and soap. Anybody have an idea why not?
I would think that it gets plenty wet when operating and I would plug the coolant in & out tubes so no water gets in. I have tried to blow it out but it still looks kind of yucky (sorry about the technological terminology).
Water on the outside of the core is not going to harm it. Cap it off and use a industrial cleaner on the fins a outside core.
Makes sense to me. Thanks for the moral support.
PS-no wife-I do own the oven!!!!!! (maniacal laugh in background.)
