Evap Core in 129

hey folks,
Got a question, I had to dis-assemble my wiper and stuff since they are replacing my winshield, while I was under there, I removed the blower and was amazed how clean everything was for a 10 year old car. My question is this, Can I clean the evap core with pressurized water from the exterior? I know there is a drain for condenstation, with the blower removed is there anything that can be damaged by water inside? I want to get it clean. Just curious. Thanks,

Brian W. Heitman

Don't think I would spray a pressurized water source into the evaporator cavity. I am sure it would result in water into the interior of the car and just make a real mess of things. Those drains from the evaporator are really pretty fragile looking.

I kind of felt the same way. I just sprayed some lysol in there to kill germs and looked it over, it was really clean. I also cleaned the cages for the blower, and scrubbed all the plastic parts down with a brush. So when they replace my windshield tomorrow I can put it back together and it will be nice and clean. Just the way it should be!
