    Default evaporator removal help - RHD E34

    As we have some experienced member from RHD countries, here a question from someone in Perth, Australia, posted on BF, and no answers so far. Must be not the easiest job, as even the AC filter for RHD cars is a split version because of the steering column on the right side and the pedals: quote

    When I did it, I gave up following instructions because they were only for LHD. I removed the whole dashboard including the top and loosened the hvac box from the firewall until I could get the evaporator out.

    I just removed the side pieces and the steering column to do the filter, TX valve and AC pipe seals. They were easy, but you must treat all the (IIRC) T27 torx nuts with respect which is hard as they are deep in their holes, and you need extensions. To do the evaporator may take a lot more, but once the centre dash is out its a matter of opening the casing and looking- IIRC it isn't so bad as you can open the HVAC box but I didn't'. AC EVAP has to come out after the heater core though as it is located before the heater core (as the air blows).
