2005 Chrysler Town & Country Q&A
2005 Chrysler Town & Country Question: Could 2006 AC/heater tube recall cause later rear AC evaporator failure?
Late 2006, our 2005 T&C minivan was subject to a recall for underbody rear AC and heater tube corrosion. The underbody rear AC and heater tubes were replaced under the recall. As early as summer 2010, the AC system was not working very well. Based on advice from the dealer, I dealt with the issue spring 2011. Dye testing revealed that the rear AC evaporator was leaking. Could there be a connection between the recall and subsequent rear AC evaporator corrosion or failure? Has anyone else had the same experience? Thank you in advance for your replies. - dlwagger
Check our "Car Info" section for further information in general about your vehicle's common problems. http://repairpal.com/chrysler-town__country-2005/problems Looks like the corrosion from the report I just read was referring to coolant lines. But i'm not first hand familiar enough to make a good comment on that. A rear evaporator core leak can be corrosion related, sure. However, it does not appear to be part of any special repair program, and I suspect the repair charges will be left to you. You can always plead your case to your Chrysler dealer for assistance. - DaveJHM
