Not really possible. It'* buried beyond sight in the car. Normally you can only see a little of it through a little peep hole.

You need to move your maxifuse relay center under the hood, and remove a small cover from the top of the core housing to look in there. It'* a major undertaking to remove it from the car.

I do, on the home machine, but it'* kind of academic unless you're planning to pull the firewall components apart to replace it.

It'* what you can see when you remove the blower resistor pack (or controller) from the evaporator housing on the firewall. We have instructions in TechInfo on how to clean via that access.

I did my own evaporator core replacement last year; you can read about it here:
