Why do you need to access the orifice tube?-- V-5 compressors rarely fail and plug the orifice- on these cars the failure mode is a worn out compressor shaft seal- I replace the seal and recharge- never check this #$#@$ orifice tube UNLESS I have a high side restriction..... just curious.... the EBTCM removal is below.......
Notice: To prevent equipment damage, never connect or disconnect the wiring harness connection from the EBCM with the ignition switch in the ON position.
Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
Pull out lock tab from the EBTCM harness connector (1).
Disconnect the EBTCM harness connector .
Disconnect the pump motor connector (3) at the bottom of the EBTCM.
Remove the six EBTCM to BPMV screws (2) and discard.
Separate the EBTCM (1) from the BPMV (5) by gently pulling apart until separated.
Important: Be careful not to damage seal. Do not pry apart using a tool.
Important: Care must be taken not to damage the solenoid valves when the EBTCM is removed from the BPMV.
If equipped with ABS/ETS, remove one wave spring (1) between the EBTCM and BPMV and discard.
Important: Note the location and the orientation of the wave spring in order to aid during installation.
If equipped with ABS/TCS remove two wave springs (1) between the EBTCM and BPMV and discard.
Important: Note the location and the orientation of the wave springs in order to aid during installation.
Important: Only the new wave spring(s) and screws supplied with the new EBTCM should be used.
Clean the BPMV gasket surface with alcohol using a clean rag.
If equipped with ABS/ETS, install one wave spring (1) between the EBTCM and BPMV. Use location and orientation noted during removal.
If equipped with ABS/TCS, install two wave springs (1) between the EBTCM and BPMV. Use locations and orientation noted during removal.
Install the EBTCM (1) to the BPMV (5).
Notice: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
Tighten the top four mounting screws (2) to 2.9 N·m (26 lb in.). Tighten screws in an X pattern.
Tighten the bottom two mounting screws (2) to 2.9 N·m (26 lb. in.).
Connect the pump motor connector (3) to the bottom of the EBTCM.
Connect the EBTCM harness connector. Push in lock tab (1).
Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position, engine off.
