Let’s talk Volvo Evaporator Replacement

In case anyone was wondering how I spent my Labor Day…

Here’s the documented results of the recent evaporator replacement I performed on my 1997 850GLT wagon. I went into the job intending to create this “how-to” guide, since almost everything I found out on the ‘net was lacking in some aspect. I took around 50 photos, and netted them down to the ones that ended up in this PDF.

The repair took me about 12 hours to complete. I hope these instructions can help others…I have a feeling that most of these cars have already had the evap job done by now, but there may be some stragglers out there (like me) who can benefit from this.

Anyway…enjoy…and let me know what you think.

P.S. I went the PDF route because I figure that most people will need to print this and keep it nearby while doing the repair. It should print out looking a lot like a ‘repair manual’ style layout.

Although I realize I’m at the wrong section, I want nevertheless to ask whether there is a way of changing the to me stupid way of crankcase venting
in my 2001 S40 turbo Volvo into the conventional PCV
valve system used in American and Japanese cars ????
