I replaced mine in about 6 hours and took some photos of what is behind the dash. Take your time on the dash removal and be sure not to break anything, so as not to make added work for yourself. The dash removal was not that bad in my opinion. Pull the heater lines and A/C lines, you will need the quick disconnect tools from an auto parts store to get the lines apart without damaging them. There are nuts under the hood on the firewall that need to be loosened or removed, I found it easier to remove the nuts and pull the heater and A/C assembly. Be sure to replace the receiver/dryer too and don't allow any dirt to get in the A/C lines. If you need to cut any lines use a tubing cutter. Don't cut any lines that you don't have replacements for. Once you get it back together you will need to evacuate the air and moisture from the system with a vacuum pump. If you don't have a vacuum pump now may be the time to take your vehicle to a shop that has one, I can't imagine they will charge you much to pull a vacuum. Then charge the system with the correct amount of freon.
I am not sure about the 2001 trucks but on my 1998 Dakota the entire dashboard had to be removed......Dealer costs. - a whopping $1100.
the evaporator canister is located in the middle of the truck. Just behind the cab it looks like two coffee cans but side by side
buying a dodge was your first mistake
To replace the water pump in my 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 v8, it was $375 including labor and everything.
Remove the ligth assy and unscrew it from the rear.
Its located on the left side of the evaporator housing inside the truck behind the heater core shield...................

is the ecm on a dodge 2001, 2500 diesel hard to replace??
Get you a CHEVY
The answer is simple - You can't fix it! I had the very same problem in the very same vehicle. I also had a Dodge Intrepid with the same exact problem. The evaporator has to be replaced. I dodge dealer will chare you about $850.00 The dash has to be completely removed. This problem seems to be too common with Dodge vehicles. I bought my last Dodge product in 2001 (Grand Carrivan) I will no longer by any Dodge vehicles. Good Luck!
Under the dash, inside the ac box, passenger side
The drain is under the accumulator under the hood.
either the bearing is noisy and driving you crazy or the pump is leaking ,or your truck is over heating and someone is guessing this will fix it
How do you replace a transmission solenoid on a 2001 dodge Dakota 4.7 engine 4x4 location?
Your 2001 Dodge Ram does not have a timing belt, it has a timing chain. No replacement is necessary.
on the top of the truck
A 2001 Dodge truck does not have a speedometer cable. The speed signal comes from the rear axle speed sensor. (the sensor on top of the center of the rear axle)
Remove the freon from the ac system and release the pressure on the 2001 Dodge. Loosen the fittings on the dryer and remove it. Install a new drier, and new o rings. Pull a vacuum on the system then fill with new freon.
a shop is costing me 1100.00 to replace little to much i think.
The Evaporator is behind the glove box
Go to your local car dealer.There,they will most likely be able to tell you.
Where is the fusible link in a 2005 Chevy HD truck
take it to a qualified dodge mechanic
Labor times vary based on the location and experience of mechanical shops. Replacing the evaporator for a 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport requires a tremendous amount of work such as removing the dash, draining the Freon, and pressurizing the A/C system. The average national time to replace an evaporator unit is between eight and ten work hours.
