: How long should it take to replace my evaporator core and convert to R134a?
I replaced the evaporator,expansion valve,receiver/drier and condenser over two weekends.The first weekend was spent removing the trim,etc. to gain access to the evaporator,as well as diagraming how things fit together.The second weekend was removal & replacement of all the AC components.I had the system charged and then reassembled all the trim. I spent approx.16hrs over-all.Of course, I could do it substantially quicker now and I saved about $1000 by doing it myself.
