AC System Basics - EricTheCarGuy
This is a kind of video response to a question I got from RadicalComedy about servicing her AC system. Keep in mind that this is a very basic overview of the components and operation of the AC system. In future installments I plan to get more in depth about the operation and function of these parts but for now I think 6 minutes of your time is enough.

Fix It Right! - Evaporator Core Replacement
Fix It Right! - Evaporator Core Replacement (S1E5)
Demonstrated on a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.7L V6 4WD.
In this video, we demonstrate the process of removing everything that covers the HVAC airbox on a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which essentially involves having to strip the dash down to the firewall.
Essentially, this video differs from our previous videos in that in this case we show a job that isn't really safe to attempt by most DIYers and should be taken to a professional, and we show why it's best left to the pros.
Removing the entire dash of a vehicle is an intensive process that should not be attempted without extensive expertise and a comprehensive set of tols, including AC recovery equipment and specialized tooling as necessary. This process requires the disabling and disassembly of critical safety systems such as airbags. AC work often requires certification - in the United States, the Clean Air Act's section 609 mandates certification for working with automotive AC refrigerant. Since this is a task best left to professionals, only an overview of the process is shown without getting into specifics.

This repair task requires certification in many municipalities. Check your local laws before attempting.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please read the disclaimer text at the start of the video before attempting anything shown therein. Take your time, take care, and be safe!
About the "Fix It Right!" video series:
"Fix It Right!" is a series of how-to videos intended to give do-it-yourselfers basic instructions on proper vehicle repair and maintenance. All of our videos show real repairs being performed on real vehicles by real technicians in a real auto shop. (Repairs are filmed and shown with the permission of the vehicles' owners.) Although there may be more than one way to perform any particular repair (and in many cases there are lots of ways!) we try to focus on the methods that will be safest and most expedient for DIYers with limited access to tooling and equipment.
We will also occasionally be showing repair processes that are too complex or dangerous for DIY, or require specialized tooling, expertise, equipment, and/or certifications. Those episodes will highlight the importance of hiring a professional auto technician for tasks that are not DIY-friendly, and demonstrate why such tasks are best left to professionals.
