A/C Evap valve
« on: April 11, 2010, 02:32:42 AM »
My Solstice is in for new weather stripping for the passenger side.  Had a noticable wind noise that is not there on the drivers side.  Still under warranty, so I brought it in to my Chevy dealer.  The part is back ordered and coming from the east coast.  When I took the service guy out for a quick ride so he could hear the noise (before they took it apart, obviously).  While we were driving, I turned on the A/C and he heard a strange noise from the fan motor or something in the system.  I almost never use the A/C, so I had forgotten about the noise.  He asked if it was ok for his tech to take a look at it while they had the car.   :thumbs:

They have since ordered a bracket and a thermal evap valve?  GM part number 89025005 if anyone has access to the database and can tell me what it is?  I don't think I want to see how much of the car has to be taken apart to get at this part...  yikes.  I hope they are really good at putting things back together!  They say I should have it back Monday.  We shal see!

I started getting the same noise recently and found a few threads here and on the other forum about it.  There's a TSB out about it:  06-01-39-016 (or 1879783, depending on which way it tracks in the system).  It does call for replacing the compressor bracket and thermal expansion valve(s - I think 2, but may be confusing that w/ the coolant system TSB).  It'll take a fair amount of disassembly, to be sure, but better to get it done now than OUT of warranty ;)

At least one post I read said that the TSB didn't fix their problem, and they wound up needing an new A/C compressor.  I'm only guessing, but that could be that they had the problem for quite awhile, and it eventually caused damage to the compressor.
