2. Remove the 5 outer evaporator core cover screws.
3. Remove the 6 inner evaporator core cover screws.
4. Separate the evaporator core cover from the heater core and evaporator core housing.
Discard the rope seal.

Apply a bead of RTV sealant around the entire evaporator core housing groove joint in place of the rope seal.
Tighten the evaporator core cover screws in a diagonal pattern to distribute the RTV sealant evenly.
