Aircon evaporator.... cactus!
 
Yep, my aircon evaporator failed, blowing hot air, leaking gas.

Unfortunately it's buried in the dash and requires the entire dash removal to get at it.

It's looking like a hot summer here in Australia, so it was becoming an issue very quickly!

Unfortunatly for me, the right hand drive WK (aka WH) has it's own evaporator, because it needs to be a different shape to fit where your LHD steering column is ;)

$840 farkhing dollars for the part, and another $1,100 to diagnose, remove/replace, and re-gas..... fark me, not cheap! Nearly $2k and I've got cold aircon again..... SO WORTH IT! :)

I'm not sure on the $ conversion though, how many pesos is that?

Yeah I could easily have R&R'd it, but work has been kind of hectic, and lost productivity would have more than offset getting the shop to do it.

I know the guys, they looked after me well enough, and after all they have re-gassed the thing for me four times over the past year, so I owed them the job I reckon :)

Now the farking aircon compressor has shit itself! GRRRRR.

As it will be the same for the USA model I've contacted Just for Jeeps for a price on it and the filter.

This SUCKS!
