I was a bit intimidated after reading posts about ripping the A/C out for good and Haynes manual saying the job was too complicated for home mechanics and techs charging $600 to do the job, etc. I am not a whiz of a wrench turner but I did the job with basic tools.
A good tip I read was to remove the glove box liner and the passenger seat. That helped a bunch. Anyway, I wanted to pass it along to help others who might be hesitant about this job. The previous owner bypassed the core and left it that way for who knows how long. I am glad I'll have heat and defrost this winter!
