Customer Question

Trying to remove expansion valve on a Honda Civic 07.

You are right where yo need to be. Do you need the rest of the removal procedure?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yeah , not sure how the cover comes off. Don't want to break the cover.
Expert:  Steve replied 2 years ago.
Ok, wanted to make sure of what you needed. It is just screwed on.
Disconnect the connectors (A) from the evaporator temperature sensor and the power transistor, then detach the connector clip (B). Remove the self-tapping screws, the expansion valve cover (C), and the seal (D).
Here is a picture:

Ok, I guess I haven't removed the screw closest to the expansion valve. What is it Phillips? To make sure we're on the same page it has a round hole to line up on and is about 6 inches deep.
Expert:  Steve replied 2 years ago.
Yes that should be correct. Should be 9 screws total and 2 connectors.
They are phillips screws

Expert:  Steve replied 2 years ago.
Ok. Let me know if you need more help.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Couldn't locate the screw in the back. Trying again in the morning. Any advice on how to locate it.
Expert:  Steve replied 2 years ago.
Not really, it is tough to find.
