Photo step by step post showing a W123 evaporator removal (1983 240D and 1982 300TD)

These pictures are from replacing the evaporators in my Daughters 1983 240D and my 1982 300TD. Not every little step is included. As you progress you will figure things out. This is not a terribly difficult job. Just time consuming. AC knowledge is required for this job and a 609 license is worth while. Not mandatory but preparing for the test teaches you a tremendous amount about the AC system.
Notice some pictures are labeled 300TD, 240D and 300TD/240D. I am trying to show pictures that are specific to the model listed. IF I have not listed a car then it applies to both. What is specified for the 300TD will apply to the 300D and 300CD usually. This is for a “Automatic Climate Control III” for the 300TD as specified in the Mercedes Service Manual. And the “Heating/Ventilation and Air Conditioning I” as specified the Mercedes Service Manual for the 240D. The only difference in the 240D system is the car has the R-4 compressor not the York unit shown in the Service Manual.
Of course disconnect the battery, drain the radiator and you will have to recover any freon in the AC system.

Note, when looking at the pictures if the car is maroon in color it is the 240D. Signal red ( stop sign red) it is the 300TD

Any recommendations for this post will be appreciated.

Dave

I have edited this post to make corrections so that the names of various parts match the Service Manual name, and a few spelling corrections

061 Remove the passenger side lower mount bracket. Note the same info as above
062 Disconnect both speaker wires from the dash.
063 Remove the center support bracket completely so it does not hit the evap box

Remove the dash from the passengers side first and move it out the passengers door. You will have to lift the dash off the defroster tubes on the evap box. Once lifted off them, it will come out. Watch the turn signal stick. Don’t break it. Don't twist the dash as this may cause cracking.
One word about reinstalling the dash. As you install the dash, the lip of vinyl at the front of the dash next to the windshield will curl up and make it difficult to get under the windshiled rubber. Using the same flat tool used to remove the A pillar moldings works well. Hold the dash in position and slie the lip under the weather strip.

064 300TD Replace the foam tube under the dash, I used a plastic unit
065 300TD Move the amp wire harness
