Mocking up the Gen IV VA unit to figure mounting points. My goal is have a usable glove box and have the evap unit as hidden as possible.
I've seen pictures on this thread of people installing the unit with the dash off. When you re-install the dash, do you have to pull the evaporator first? I installed my plastic mock up Gen IV unit and tried to install the dash with it in place but wasn't able to. I'm doing it alone so that probably didn't help.
Plastic Gen IV mock up in place
The angled rear portion of the dash that comes into the passenger side from the kick panel would catch on the motor. I wasn't able to squeeze it in between the motor and kick panel so had to remove it and reinstall after the dash was mounted.
It's easy to re-install the mock up after the dash is in. The actual unit, with plumbing, would be much more difficult. If there are any tricks to getting the dash around the unit and mounted I would appreciate feedback.
Here is what I believe if going to be final location. Happy with the look.
Here is front view. I have a bit more than 4" clearance between the dash opening and the VA unit. Anyone know how deep the glove box is? I haven't ordered a new one yet.
