    wetry is putting to much pressure on me lately ,but I am having fun! .OH....To answer your question, the expansion valve w/cappilary tube are in-line attatched to the evaporator. While your in there check that the thermistor is in proper position . Why all the parts? did the compressor explode?

    This is NOT a competition , I do this for entertainment and to once in a while help someone with a problem. The difference with me is I tend to go overboard sometimes. Those instructions were merely paraphrased from Hondas on-line site which I have access to. When Able I try to use the info to everyones advantage. But anyway thanks again.Keep up your good stuff too!
