Hmmm,

Let start by saying there is nothing easy in the A/C expansion valve.

When you get to where you can remove it, pulling the complete evaporator is an addition 5 seconds.

There are many hidden and hard to reach screws in the cover.

Everything comes out toward the glovebox.

This is not what I would call a DIY.

There is the issue of discharging and charging freon.

Later,
