Very nice! Do you know the lifespan of an evaporator? When I do my AC I'm trying to figure out what else could/should be replaced.

First one on my 1999, 6 years then leaked

Nissans replacement now 7 year old, no leaks

No leaks defined as AC charge has lasted 7 years, no top-ups and good 40 F delta performance

Changed my oil on a beautiful 55F fall day, new Mahle filter, Mobil 1.

Got on my knees and thanked my 1999T5 for still running me around reliably at 180k miles with two last kids in college. Two more years
Got back on my knees and thanked for the 2 years, and the additional two years past that.

Got to use the bump function to bump the AC oring thread for dirk

Since I am stuck at home for the last and next week, I have been doing some work to my 98 V70. I repaired the leaking trans cooler lines, by cutting off the crimps, installing new hoses and o-rings. Rebuilt a spare headlight motor from an 850 to work in my V70 on the drivers side, now it doesn't stop wherever it wants. I installed side marker lights and my 16" summer tires and rims, installed my 2000 V70R dual exhaust (needs new tips). I then went to cleaning the interior, I tried a method I read about here using a magic eraser. I used windex and went through 4 magic erasers and it sure makes a difference, took a pic of the panel above the rear hatch one side clean, the other dirty. I also cleaned and conditioned my seats with Auto Glym leather cleaner and conditioner. Currently trying to tint my rear windows, I attempted it a few months back, got frustrated and gave up, but I have more time to kill now. Since most forums like pictures:
