Rick :

Tom I am not real sure if the clip comes on the new cover. I will see if I can get you a quick diagnostic cheat sheet.

Customer:

Rick, can you tell me what the Ohm reading should be for the heater element and if the insulation has been modified on the evaporator cover. I did find a possible leak on the door gasket also. Thanks. Can you find out if there are self diagnosis codes for this model also.I will compensate with a bonus. Thanks,Tom

This is the self diagnostic information you are looking for, as far as a different type of insulation, I dont know nothing that stands out. Just most of the time the styrofoam gets ruined when they freeze up
