–  Detach heat shield -B- in area of -N541--D- and of refrigerant line -F- (leading to connection on right longitudinal member) from plenum chamber bulkhead, and bend it back slightly.
–  Unscrew speed nuts -1- and -3-.
–  Fold the heat shield -2- as far forwards as necessary (and possible) -arrow-.
 

Removing and installing refrigerant shut-off valve for heater and air conditioner unit -N541

–  Disconnect connector -C- of -N541--D-.
Risk of freezing injury caused by escaping pressurised refrigerant.There is a risk of injury to the skin and parts of the body due to freezing.Always wear safety gloves.Always wear safety goggles.Extract refrigerant, and open the refrigerant circuit immediately afterwards.If more than 10 minutes passed since the refrigerant has been extracted, do not open the refrigerant circuit prior to extracting refrigerant anew. Due to re-evaporation, pressure will be built up in the refrigerant circuit.
–  Loosen union nuts -E-. Counterhold on -N541--D- while doing so.
–  Detach refrigerant line -F- (leading to connection on right longitudinal member) from retainer on plenum chamber bulkhead.
