Replace evaporator on 997 turbo.

  • Hello all,

    I need a statement/help to the evaporator exchange of the air conditioning in the 997 turbo. This is leaking and must be replaced. According to my workshop, the whole dashboard must be removed? Is that correct? My garage doesn't want to do that, but they know a lot about it, but they have never done that in particular.

    Does anyone know a workshop in the HN/HD/S area that is familiar with this and can or would do it? Is Boschdienst an interesting address here? :hilferuf:

    Hope and look forward to your support or expertise :thumb:

  • Look in PET, you won't even find the evaporator as a single spare part, it seems this is part of the ventilation. Therefore, you will have to remove the entire air conditioner and partially disassemble to get to it. And that means: The dashboard has to come out! Maximum penalty, because the risk of noise afterwards is extremely high, so hardly anyone will want to do this voluntarily. Experience is worth its weight in gold here.

    To Porsche's credit, the heating element is extremely easy to change compared to most other cars, from the outside through the water tank.

    The evaporator is the most difficult component to reach in almost all cars and is correspondingly tedious to change.

  • You can see the evaporator sitting behind the glove box, but whether a swap can be done with just removing the glove box would be the question and whether anyone has done it before,

  • Hi there you have the jackpot! Evaporator there is only in combination with the air conditioning box! Is by the way a standard VW part!

    The air conditioning box is not intended to disassemble, but it still goes!

    Yes the dashboard must actually be removed! Goes but actually even if it is only loosened and pushed up a little (a little fiddly)

    Hope you find a good screwdriver who wants to do this.

    Then also applies to the evaporator itself :wink:
