Nissan R32 Skyline evaporator removal and refresh project *AMENDED

25 or 30 year old cars, often need their systems to be cleaned, and refreshed to work better.  In this video JT does that to his air conditioning evaporator core for his R32 GT-R. 

I want to thank Sean Kirby for making the first removal video but I wanted to expand on my own experience so I made a video as well as the rebuild results. Please go and watch his video here to understand any references I've made https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vh1IA... Second, thank Eric Hermansen for confirming the parts needed to get this project going. Parts I used for this project were the following.. you can substitute parts if available locally. AC Dryer - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00... Expansion Valve - https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.... Butyl Tape - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00... Foam padding (sides) - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07... Exterior box foam - https://www.homedepot.com/p/M-D-Build... AC Flush kit (you will need to have access to an air compressor) - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07... Cleaning solution - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00... As for the vacuuming out the lines to create pressure and adding compressor oil and freon you will need to take it to a shop to do it for you, rent the stuff from your local auto parts store (it's "free", they just put a hold on your CC), or purchase the vacuum and AC gauges. AMENDED - I found that the evaporator was not easily flushable with the expansion valve installed. I decided to do it right and pulled the evap box back out and removed the butyl tape and disconnected the expansion valve. I was able to flush the evap core and so much junk came out. I highly recommended flushing it off the car.
