Honda Accord AC Evaporator And Expansion Valve Replacement (2003 - 2007)

Опубликовано: 28 окт. 2015 г. 426 975 просмотров

Yes, this tiny little expansion valve requires you to tear into the dashboard to replace it. Blower motor and evaporator both have to come out before you can remove the valve.

*Don't forget to recover the AC refrigerant before disconnecting any AC components and/or lines.*

Applies to Honda Accord 2003 - 2007

    hackfreehvac 2 года назад (изменено) Who the hell designs an A/C system where you have to remove the evaporator coil to replace a TXV??? Most sane engineers have it on the engine side of the firewall where it takes 15 minutes to replace. Nice video BTW. I just shared it with some fanboy who claims that these are just as easy as swapping one in a Dodge etc where they are under the hood. LOL

    Jason Voorhees 9 месяцев назад you can get to the expansion valve from under the hood just remove the lines at the firewall, but to remove entire coil yes you need to do it this way.

  • happywrenching
    happywrenching 2 года назад I wanted to mention that I had to redo this job because the aftermarket valve that we got from RockAuto did not work properly. It caused high pressure readings and the A/C had poor cooling performance. Installed an OEM Honda valve and the A/C is working great again. On the bright side - the job only took about 30 minutes this time around :)

    NeilC Cross 11 месяцев назад If you going to go through all the labor why not replace the evaporator. if it has any age at all the aluminum is bound to be degraded.
  • TeraVolt
    TeraVolt 11 месяцев назад (изменено) +NeilC Cross The evaporator is located inside a closed shell and in most modern cars a filter keeps it away from dust and contamination. It's not like a condenser, which is always open to road salt, dust and whatnot. Money for an evaporator, unless it leaks, of course, is better spent on a new condenser in my own opinion. I have a 15 years old car, with a 15 years old Harrison CVC compressor and ice cold air (as much as the blue type 42 PSI destroke valve allows), and while the condenser clearly shows its years with some bent fins and an opaque oxidated look, the evaporator looks shiny and clean and it seems new.

  • happywrenching
    happywrenching 2 года назад Not counting the time to recover and refill the refrigerant, around 2 hours.
