    That worked out alright. It's kind of a bummer though, there is nothing that you can make better while you are there lol. The only good thing about pulling the dash is gaining access to things you have to fix.

    This was not a easy, peasy, smooth 40 minute job. Straight forward, yes. 40 minutes? No ****ing way. Did the right thing and had the freon evac'd earlier. Took it all apart... Old springs in the accum to evap line were impossible to remove. Actually had to modify a crappy disconnect tool to work. Then BOOOOOOMSPRAAAAAYYYYFREEEEOOONNNN AAAAAAAHHHHHH,, gonna cuss that guy out tomorrow..




    THEN THE HEATER CORR LOOKED MINT...

    Filled it with water and it didn't even leak.. There was evidence of coolant in the air box and on the inner firewall so I'm assuming the either the hose to nipple connection was poor or the hose itself was compromised. It felt soft. Going to use new hose and some cialis to be sure. Decided to drink crown royal tonite and put her back together tomorrow.

    I'm telling you, it took literally 40 minutes to get my dash out.

    On on a completely unrelated side note, I already had the seats, center consol, and radio out.
