Hi Pepi,

I changed the evaporator on my old vectra and there was no need to remove the dash. I removed the side of the centre console in the passenger footwell, and there was a cover that could be removed to allow access. You can buy a replacement cover that fits over the hole once you replace the evaporator.

Part #13 in this link suggests it might be the same for the astra, hope this helps,25396/
Wow thanks jwalker that sounds better than pulling the whole dash out thanks,, but do i have to cut a hole in the heater box?.. if this helps i have a astra 2001

Yes you have to make the hole, but it gets covered up again with the replacement panel.

I don't know the exact procedure for the astra, maybe it might be worth checking with someone who has a copy of TIS to know for sure
Hi Carlos

I know it's been a long time, but did you remove the whole dashboard?

I need to remove the whole dashboard from my MK4 Astra Van 1.7DTI, I think they're the same.

Can you help with any tips etc?
