Model: Elantra GLS
Engine Size: 2.0
Refrigerant Type: R134
I just purchased a used 2005 Hyundai Elantra and noticed that there is no receiver dryer or at least I cannot see one. I looked in the service manual and there is no mention of one. Is this the norm for these later model cars to be designed without one?
Like many newer cars, it's integrated with the condenser. AMA doesn't list them but if you search third-party parts sites you will see there is a cylinder welded to the side of the condenser.

Thanks for clearing this up MK378!
And by-the-way, the desiccant bag inside the integral tube is serviceable. I haven't looked to see if Tim carries them or not, but the Hyundai Part Number is:
97802-17000 which is the new supersession number from the old number of 97853-2D000. The two Orings on the desiccant access cap are very sturdy and can usually be reused as long as they are in good shape.
Hope this helps,
