Re: do i need to take off expansion valve when takin o a/c (jok3sta)

you know what really is azz about the vw vortex is that when it comes to finding answers there are few and far between. I want to remove my A/C also but I couldn't find any answers too, hopefully someone will respond who has done this with some good sound advice. The last thing we need is someone who's heard from someone else how its done. I've taken crappy advice from people on here before simply because I did not know any better myself...sorry to rant.

You can remove it all if you want. Are you gutting the car interior or are you leaving the heater core and blower motor in the dash? If so, I'd leave as much of the ventilation system intact (minus evap core and plumbing) so you can have semi-effective defrost/de-fog. Otherwise, when in doubt, rip it out.
