I do see your point as i am recalling the rubber drain tube that directs the water flow away from the evaporator core
How many of those are still there doing the job they should be might be the better question to ask ?
If the core should freeze where will the thaw water overflow wind up ?
There is surely a moisture issue in that location for a variety of reasons that are AC related
When would a rust preventative not be a good idea ?

Nope the a/c dosent drip on the fender. It drips out the bottom of the inner cowl where the evaporator is. Lots of factory undercoating there.

I dont have the parts for the ac, bought the car last year without pump, lines and so on.. So making the ac work again will be a plan for the future. But your right about the rust. My panels do need attention. I just painted the inside of the panels with a special primer that digs in to rust for now. Going to buy a weldmachine next summer and teach myself how to do bodywork. Shouldnt be that difficult right? Ghehheh.

As you have the passenger front fender off the car
I would use a good rust preventaive on the inside of that fender
The evaporator core of the AC in our year cars drips down the inside of that fender when the Ac is working and working correctly
That AC driping is the major cause of the rust that developes in that lower fender Corner which already may require some repair and attention from age

Wow, you  threw an overkill grenade. Everything was  blown off the car!  The results will be well worth the effort.

HVAC Vacuum Valve Clip-need the one for the Power Control side

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 17, 2018 at 8:15pm 58 Comments



I removed both 7 nipple vacuum valves and called my buddy who owns a machine shop. Tomorrow we'll re-surface the valve faces and then I'll reinstall them. HOWEVER, the one that comes out easily and comes apart with no rivet is on the Power module side. It installs on one side with a small bolt, and on the other it is held on by a clip, WHICH IS MISSING ON MY CAR. I am going to assume it is the same clip that is used on the Control Module side. Anybody got one? Happy…
