Rear a/c

Anyone have any tips on replacing rear ac condenser and expansion valve or anything else to change while I’m back there? I’ll be doing this on Saturday. Seems fairly straightforward but any pointers are appreciated.

Thanks!

What are the symptoms? Our 2009 does not blow cold air in the back.

Same as you. Front ac works rear does not. I’ve tested rear actuator and it’s working so I figure it’s clogged. I bought condenser, expansion valve and orifice tube to cover all parts while I’m back there.

I ended up starting the repairs today. So far the only part I got my ass kicked was removing the heater core lines. Gonna buy new plastic tabs. Otherwise everything else has gone well so far.

Think the orifice tube was a little clogged 😂

Go to the last post in this thread, this is why the A/C quit working in my '14 and blowing out the fan seems like a good idea.

I’ve already gotten everything put back together and I’m vacuuming the system. Do I need to add pag oil after replacing the rear evap core or the expansion valve?

In my limited experience you shouldn't have to add oil unless you lost a lot when you opened the system up. Cheers,Gus

I’ve had it back together and recharged since Saturday. Been driving for a few days and everything is still blowing cold front and back 😁
