Not sure what the Flat Rate labor rate is in the Netherlands Antilles, but the labor is 8.7 hours and the evaporator is $108 in the USA.

Will I have to change the complete assemble or just the evaporator
Expert:  A. Penland replied 1 year ago.

I think it is the lower half of the case including the evaporator.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can the lower case be change separately or do you recommend taking it to the dealer
Expert:  A. Penland replied 1 year ago.

If you are handy working on a vehicle and are comfortable removing the dash and floor console, then you can do it your self.

The complete dash will have to be unbolted and pulled away from the fire wall to gain access to the evaporator which is bolted to the fire wall behind the dash.

Do you have an idea of the cost of complete assembly or is the price of 108,00 the cost of the lower case
Expert:  A. Penland replied 1 year ago.

$108 is the cost of the lower case and evap core. Either way, the dash will have to be removed to do the repair if you are doing the complete case or just the evap with the lower case.

Had the vehicle check and got two different diagnose one said the rear and after inserting a dye the said now it is the front. Smelling the fume in the cabin. Which one of the evaporate goes bad first the front or the rear.

Usually the front. If you smell it in the vehicle, it is usually the front. It gets used the most.
