Following the same procedure as before, I removed the dash and set forth to replace the evaporator and restore the air conditioning in the car. Over the 5 years and 75,000 miles the dash had started to get noisier and it would squeak badly if the car was left out in the sun or if the defroster was run on a high temperature in the winter.
