  2.  
  3. Disconnect the negative (-) battery cable from the battery.
  4.  
  5. Remove the passenger-side (right-hand side) rear pillar trim. The evaporator is located under this trim piece.

  17. To install the rear evaporator, set it in place in the vehicle.
  18.  
  19. Secure it in place with the mounting bolts and plug the wiring harness connector back together.
