Guess what I'm doing...

Guess what I'm doing, and I'm only halfway thru disassembly. Hint, I had one previous post about what lay ahead.

And, we have a winner!
The compressor was seized when I got the car, almost no oil in the system. It had torn the rubber out of the center of the compressor clutch. So new compressor, condenser, expansion valve, receiver/dryer, evaporator. Only thing left will be the lines connecting everything. Fortunately, the compressor seized clean, and didn't scatter debris everywhere. I'm flushing the lines though.

I initially changed the compressor and condenser, pulled a vacuum, and noticed a slow leak. Added a partial can of coolant, got out my $20 sniffer, and found a leak behind the expansion valve, on the copper side of the evaporator. The YouTube evaporator video series by Buckwheat has been useful as a supplement to WIS procedures. There is a LOT of crap to disconnect to get the evaporator housing out of the car.
