Replacing a Cars Air Conditioning Evaporator

Recently Auto Stop Mechanical Repairs Gold Coast had to replace a leaking evaporator coil on a Mazda 6. The evaporator is located behind the dash pad and the blower motor for the cabin heating & Air Conditioning system blows through it’s fins. When the Air conditioning system is working properly the air cools as it passes through the evaporator coil fins & gives cold air at the dash vents.

Here are a few pictures showing the process we went through to replace the Air Conditioning Evaporator and then Recommissioned (Re Gassed) the system
