Removal & Installation
Remove instrument panel. See INSTRUMENT PANEL. Drain coolant from cooling system.
Disconnect all cables and ducts from heater case. Remove heater case from vehicle. Remove screws
and clips from heater case. Separate heater case into halves (if necessary). Remove heater core from
case. To install, reverse removal procedure.
a/c core (evap) out, if need be........
1. Disable air bag system. See AIR BAG RESTRAINT SYSTEM article in
ACCESSORIES/SAFETY EQUIPMENT SECTION. Remove driver's air bag module.
Discharge A/C system, using approved refrigerant recovery/recycling equipment. Disconnect
negative battery cable. Disconnect refrigerant lines from evaporator case. Cap all refrigerant
line openings. Remove evaporator vase nut on engine side of bulkhead.
2. Remove glove box. Remove passenger's air bag module. Loosen 2 blower motor housing
support bolts. Loosen evaporator-to-heater clamp. Slide clamp on to heater case. Remove
evaporator case drain hose. Disconnect A/C amplifier and evaporator thermistor connectors.
Remove 2 upper evaporator case bolts. Remove evaporator case from vehicle.
3. Release 2 lock tabs, slide A/C amplifier upward and remove amplifier from case. See Fig. 5 .
Separate evaporator assembly halves. Remove evaporator core from case. Remove expansion
valve. Remove thermistor.
To install, reverse removal procedure. If installing new evaporator, add .7-1.0 ounce of refrigerant oil
o suction side fitting of compressor. Evacuate and recharge system. Check for leaks.
I would not suggest that. Lets say that does not react, the AC Evaporator Core can not take the volume of coolant. AC is pressurized, on that side is like 45 PSIG, low volume of gas. Not is going to flow liquid at high volume, perhaps less pressure.
In electric terms....
Was running 45 Volts on 1 Amp of current.
Power is 45V x 1A = 45 Watts
Now will be running like 12 Volts on 25 Amps of current... 12V x 25A = 300 Watts
It will blow up !
Not exact numbers but I think is a good analogy.
There is a huge difference between Pressure and Volume
Liquids behave like a Electrical Circuit, the PSIG we can call it Volts (Electromotive Force), Gallons Per Minutes are the Amps (Q Per Seconds).
Heater core job vs. sharp stick in the eye? I'll take the stick...
Not a fun job on any car I've ever heard of... even just a blower fan is usually a PITA.
I wouldn't try to sub the evap core though, I don't think it'd work out. Just go for it, & fix it right. It's time consuming more than anything...

i didn't see it in the manual but you also need to drop the steering column. i remember having a tough time with where it mounts in the center under the radio.. i think i had to move the airbag module because the bracket runs underneath it...
