Here's the X3 at its worst. Took roughly 11 hours counting time to eat and shoot the bull for a few minutes. Honestly, it wasn't that bad of a job...it's really quite easy. Just be methodical about the things you take off and put screws in zip-loc bags with labels of where they came from. That helped a lot.

The X is at the shop right now getting charged up with refrigerant. Here's hoping for no leaks!

Re: Changing the AC evaporator

Nice! That picture brought back some bad memories. Glad it worked out for you. Did you replace the drier too? Keep us posted on the recharge.

Everything was fine. No leaks detected, so I think it's all good now. Thanks for your thread...it was very helpful!

Props. Dealer replaced ours, luckily under CPO. Not an easy DIY.
