To install:
  1. Install the heater core in the reverse order of removal.
  2. Install the heater unit in the reverse order of removal, and note these items:

    Do not interchange the inlet and outlet heater hoses, and install the hose clamps securely.
    Refill the cooling system with engine coolant.
    Make sure that there is no coolant leakage.
    Make sure that there is no air leakage.
    If you're installing a new evaporator core, add refrigerant oil (DENSO® ND-OIL 8).
    Replace the O-rings with new ones at each fitting, and apply a thin coat of refrigerant oil before installing them. Be sure to use the correct O-rings for HFC-134a (R-134a) to avoid leakage.
    Immediately after using the oil, reinstall the cap on the container, and seal it to avoid moisture absorption.
    Do not spill the refrigerant oil on the vehicle; it may damage the paint; if the refrigerant oil contacts the paint, wash it off immediately.
    Make sure that there is no air leakage.
    Charge the system.
  3. Adjust the heater valve cable.
    1. Set the temperature control dial to Max Cool (Lo) with the ignition switch ON (II).
    2. Attach the heater valve cable (B) to the air mix control linkage (C) as shown. Hold the end of the heater valve cable housing against the stop (D), then snap the heater valve cable housing into the cable clamp (A).
      NOTE
      Make sure the ring-end of the cable is pushed all the way to the base of the pin on air mix control linkage.

    3. From under the hood, turn the heater valve arm (C) to the fully closed position as shown, and hold it. Attach the heater valve cable (B) to the heater valve arm, and gently pull on the heater valve cable housing to take up any slack, then install the heater valve cable housing into the cable clamp (A).

  4. Reset the power window control unit:
    1. Using the HDS:

      Connect the HDS to the vehicle's DLC.
      Turn the ignition switch ON (II), then enter the vehicle's VIN and mileage at the prompts.
      Select ''BODY ELECTRICAL'' from the ''System Selection'' menu.
      From the ''BODY ELECTRICAL SYSTEM SELECT'' menu, select ''Power Windows''.
      From the ''MODE'' menu, select ''Adjustments''.
      From the ''ADJUSTMENT'' menu, select ''WINDOW P RESET'' for driver's side window.
      Follow the prompts on the screen.
      Confirm that the power window control unit is reset by using the driver's window AUTO UP and AUTO DOWN function.
    2. Without the HDS:
      NOTE
      The next 4 steps must be done within 5 seconds of each other.



      Turn the ignition switch ON (II).
      Move the driver's window all the way down by using the driver's window DOWN switch.
      Open the driver's door.



      Turn the ignition switch OFF.
      Push and hold the driver's window DOWN switch.
      Turn the ignition switch ON (II).
      Release the driver's window DOWN switch.
      Repeat these 4 steps three more times.
      Wait 1 second.
      Confirm that AUTO UP and AUTO DOWN do not work. If AUTO UP and DOWN work, go back to the first step.
      Move the driver's window all the way down by using the driver's window DOWN switch.
      Pull up and hold the driver's window UP switch until the window reaches the fully closed position, then continue to hold the switch for 1 second.
      Confirm that the power window control unit is reset by using the driver's window AUTO UP and AUTO DOWN function.
      If the window still does not work in AUTO, repeat the procedure several times, paying close attention to the 5 second time limit between steps.
  5. Enter the anti-theft codes for the radio and the navigation system, then enter the XM radio channel presets.
