Evaporator Core Access? (2006 Grand Marquis)

First of all, props to Ford for engineering the evaporator core inside of the engine bay, where it can be easily(?) accessed. (I'm used to tearing apart dashes to get to them.

So question: How do you go about accessing the evap core to check for leaks? Anybody have a factory service manual available?

Re: Evaporator Core Access? (2006 Grand Marquis)

Its a pain to get to. I just replaced mine in my 87 grand marquis and literally had to pry it out. There are screws that hold the two halves of the enclosure its in but mine still didnt seperate so I had to use a breaker bar.

The far easier way to find out is to run uv dye in the system and watch the drain line. The evaporator will leak into the enclosure and out the drain line along with the dye.

It appears to be next to where the lower line comes out of the evaporator core in the engine bay.
