To replace a receiver drier in a 2002 Hyundai Sante Fe, it is recommended to take it to an authorized dealer. This part is usually cheap to replace and the only time it should be replaced is when there is a mechanical compressor failure.
Should be on the receiver/drier.
The filter/receiver/drier is an integral part of your car's A/C system that has been designed primarily to trap moisture, effectively removing it from the system and preventing corrosive damage to the A/C system. This 'drying' action is chemical in nature, so it can't go on endlessly, this is why it is very important to replace the filter/receiver/drier at intervals.
If you did not replace the expansion block valve and the receiver drier then you will need to do this as well..............
You need to recover the refrigerant. Remove the evaporator case and disassemble it. Replace the valve and recharge the system. It is best to install a receiver drier at the same time.
The AC receiver drier on a 1995 Honda Civic is on the high-pressure side of the system. It is between the expansion valve inlet and condenser outlet.

Between the receiver-drier outlet and the evaporator inlet.
It has what is called a receiver drier........ It does not have a cabin filter.
Ensures that only liquid refrigerant continues on to the Thermal Expansion Valve.
You would have to replace the orifice tube, accumulator or receiver-drier (which one you have depends on what type of AC system you have), as well as remove all of the R12 refrigerant, and you'd have to replace the compressor oil with PAG.
By law, an ASE certified technician in an EPA certified shop must recover and store the refrigerant in your vehicle. Once that's done, you use a fuel line separator to disconnect the refrigerant hoses from the receiver-drier.
