1.To install, reverse the removal procedure.

NOTE:
*Replace all the O-rings and coat them with refrigerant oil.
*When installing a new evaporator, install the gaskets as they were on the old evaporator.
*When the battery is disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal drive symptoms may occur while the vehicle relearns its adaptive strategy. The vehicle may need to be driven 16 km (10 miles) or more to relearn the strategy.
