Leaking Evaporator - How to Replace?

I have a leaking evaporator and need step by step instructions on removing the dash and any additional advice/details on the job.

I cannot find or figure out how to reset the clock on my car. The time is set to military time and the AM and PM hours are reversed. Also, half of the year the clock is off by an hour. HELP !

1997 BMW 318I Sedan

directions can be faxed to: 845-559-6944
email: vickibo25@gmail.com

I'm certain that I can complete this job with a little advice and guidance and then take it to be evacuated and recharged......living in FL...A/C is NOT an option.

Thank you in advance !

You may not need to take out the dash. Try removing the glove box, there should be a "door" you can pry open and slide the evaporator out(after disconnecting the expansion valve of course). Except you want to change the entire blower housing, i dont think you need to take out the dash. Went through dash removal, its a very patient venture, so many screws. Everything goes including the panel covering the gear stick and hand brake. If Fl is anything like Lagos, you need AC.
