This is a how to fix the warm air that blows when you drive in the city. The problem is the scroll valve that gets clogged and no longer works properly, so it has to be replaced. so follow these simple steps and you will have cold a/c in no time! The first thing you need to do is evacuate the a/c refrigerant. You should wait till the engine is cool to do this.

closer look

File comment: when removing this plate, slowly unbolt it so that it allows any pressure still in the system to escape safely, the tools you are going to need are a 10 mm wrench and a 10 mm socket drive.

scroll valve


Attachments:
File comment: As you can see there is a spring attached to the scroll valve make sure you do not lose this spring or you will be sol, you need to take that spring and put it on the new scroll valve.

hi,

i'm very sure i'm having the same problem as your "topic"......the A/C works sometimes and does not work sometimes too.....it works whenever it chooses to, most times it does not work at all.

the repair steps you have listed has given me hope a bit more on solving my a/c issues, even though i've not even tried it out.

where can i order this VALVE you described please.....and how much does it cost?
