Removing and installing Denso heat exchanger, RHD vehicles

Vehicles with TDI engine:
–  Press release buttons on crankcase breather hose -1- and detach hose from cylinder head cover.
–  Detach vacuum hoses from air pipe -arrows- to permit access.
–  Loosen hose clip -3-.
–  Remove bolt -2-, swivel air pipe with connection rearwards and detach from turbocharger.
 

Removing and installing Denso heat exchanger, RHD vehicles

Continuation for all vehicles:
–  Mark installation position of coolant hoses -1- and -4-.
  Note
The heat exchanger is designed for a particular direction of flow of the coolant. Therefore, the coolant hoses must not be interchanged when connecting them.
–  Clamp off coolant hoses -1- and -4- using hose clamps, up to 25 mm -3094-.
–  Lift retaining clips -2- and -3-.
–  Disconnect coolant hoses -1- and -4- from heat exchanger for heater.
 

Removing and installing Denso heat exchanger, RHD vehicles

–  Push a piece of hose -A- onto upper connection.
Insert compressed air gun into end of hose.
–  Hold drip tray -B- under connection -C- and carefully blow coolant out of heat exchanger using compressed air gun.
–  Seal off open lines and connections with clean plugs from engine bung set -VAS 6122-.
–  Remove baffle plate → Chapter.
–  Remove glove compartment → General body repairs, interior; Rep. gr.68.
–  Removing footwell vent on front passenger side → Chapter.
–  Remove centre console trim in footwell → General body repairs, interior; Rep. gr.68.
–  Vehicles with auxiliary air heater: Remove auxiliary air heater element -Z35- with auxiliary air heater control unit -J604- → Chapter.
–  Cover area beneath connections for coolant hoses in plenum chamber as well as airbag control unit -J234- with, for example, impermeable sheeting and absorbent paper.
 

Removing and installing Denso heat exchanger, RHD vehicles

–  Remove bolts -2- and detach screw-type clamps -3-.
–  Separate coolant pipes.
  Note
If the coolant pipes cannot be separated because the seals are gummed up, cut through them at the marked locations -arrows- using pliers -T40147-.
Pull the cut coolant pipes -4- and -7- of heat exchanger off coolant pipes -1- and -11- leading to the engine.
–  Remove bolt -10- and detach heat exchanger bracket-9-.
–  Pull out heat exchanger -6- to left.
–  Seal off open lines and connections with clean plugs from engine bung set -VAS 6122-.
Installing
Installation is carried out in the reverse order. When installing, note the following:
  Note
Renew seals.
–  Check heater slot for dirt with heat exchanger removed.
–  If necessary, remove any dirt and coolant residue.
–  Vehicles with TDI engine: With auxiliary air heater element removed, check heating element slot for dirt and clean if necessary.
 

Removing and installing Denso heat exchanger, RHD vehicles

–  Check foam seals -2- attached to heat exchanger -1- for damage and replace if necessary.
  Note
If the foam seal is not bonded in, it may roll up when the heat exchanger is fitted.
If the foam seal is damaged or improperly fitted, cold air can flow past the heat exchanger.
The illustration shows the heat exchanger for a “Valeo” heater and air conditioning unit.
 

Removing and installing Denso heat exchanger, RHD vehicles

–  Check connection -3- of heat exchanger and connection of coolant pipe -1- for damage or dirt.
–  Clean and smoothen sealing surface for seals.
–  Moisten new seals -1- with coolant (or lubricate lightly with silicone grease) and fit them to coolant pipe.
–  Carefully slide heat exchanger into heater and air conditioning unit to stop.
  Note
When sliding in the heat exchanger, make sure not to damage the connections and coolant pipes.
–  Push coolant pipes into heat exchanger to stop.
Risk of malfunction on heat exchanger due to defective seals and leaks.Never squeeze seals.Never cant coolant pipes.Slide on coolant pipes completely.
 

Removing and installing Denso heat exchanger, RHD vehicles

–  Fit heat exchanger bracket -3- on air distribution housing and tighten bolt -4- to specified torque.
–  Fit new clip -2- to joint between coolant pipe and heat exchanger.
–  Tighten bolt -1- → Chapter „Assembly overview - heater and air conditioning unit“.
–  Check clip and screw-type clip for proper seating on connections of heat exchanger and check coolant pipes. The coolant pipes must not contact air distribution housing or any other components.
–  Fill with coolant → Rep. gr.19.
–  Read event memory, and clear any entries displayed vehicle diagnostic tester in “Guided fault finding” mode.
–  As a final step, check operation of heater and air conditioner.
