    Default AC evaporator need changing

    Hi guys,
    noticed for like a week that ac is not working as good as it used to do. went to a garage they topped up the gas saying there might be a small leak but top up will work. however now the ac is again not working as good. to this i visited sharjah today and check with couple of mechanic, most of them told me to leave the car and then they will tell me after checking, janu garage and green point.
    some small garages, checked the system by putting pressure and by inserting gas detector in vents. they told me evap has a leak and requires changing.
    so i am going to have it change now. but leaving car for this long is an issue, minimum 3 days is what everyone is saying and price quoted is ard 3.5k - 4.5k
    can u guys suggest me some good workshop who can do this quickly and perfectly. i am worried as they need to tear apart everything, God know how they will refit it :S please suggest.
    shortlisted garages uptil now are max and znz

    i recall doing an evaporator job on my e39 540i it was painful to see what it had to go through. The entire dashboard has to be removed to access the evaporator. It is a major job and if not done correctly will result in electrical issues/buttons/gauges not functioning etc. Also the getting the dashboard re-aligned again properly.

    give it to a garage who have done this job before. Ask for specific details and make sure the mechanic working on your car knows what he is doing.

    Back then my car was done by Tony Edwards. but now i'd go with Octane since they are BMW specialists and ive been servicing with them over the last many years.

    If your Ac emptied the gas in a week or two, ac stop leak won't help , My car used to leak in three weeks and I used AC stop leak and it didn't work. Unfortunately it is a really frustrating thing that happens to most BMW cars and you need to remove the whole dashboard to change the evap. . It is really irritating and you really need to do it in a good garage or you will get scratches in the dashboard and also rattling sounds.

    I've heard good things about MAX, especially since they restore a lot of classics I'm sure they've got some good techs on board.
