Removing rear ac/heat
My X project is slowly coming along. Got a few things ordered that should be here next week. In the mean time, I want to pull out the 3rd row seat and fab up a partition behind the 2nd row. I want to maximize as much space back there as I can. Planning on pulling out all the plastic & carpet, hitting it with a double dose of bed liner, fabbing up a bumper mounted spare tire carrier and getting rid of the rear heater/AC.
Does anyone know of a diagram that shows how the rear climate stuff is routed & connected? I'd like to remove it as clean and complete as possible without hacking up anything.
From what I have been able to see for myself, it looks like both evaporators run off the one compressor. I'm thinking pull an F truck evaporator and heater core for the front would be the easiest way to go. Anyone done this? Got any pointers, tips, tricks, suggestions?
