I'd check it when you have the new one to compare to the old one
Are you speaking about the restrictor? I think the TSB (here is the text for those that cannot open it) calls for installing one under certain circumstances. Since I have installed a Supercharger thinking maybe a good idea since the system might be under greater pressure?

So my mechanic suggests I also replace the evaporator, and blend door actuator while he is doing the heater core replacement. Does anyone have the Ford Motorcraft part numbers for these or are there other parts that are more recommended?

2000 Ford Explorer Limited 5.0 V8 AWD with EATC HVAC

Thanks

If it ant broke ....
Generally I would agree but since we’re going to have this whole thing tore apart I’m very torn about not replacing some of these things that have been known to fail on the Explorer over time. Keep in mind the truck is 21 years old and I don’t think that any of those other parts of ever been replaced. Do you think it’s a good idea to just do it or really just let it be? I’d hate to have to tear apart the dash again

Not the condenser that can be replaced without dash removal

The actuator is reliable but yes after 20 years it could be a good idea to replace. Same for the evaporator and heater cores, I decide on those based on how much they cost. The actuator used to be about $60, I bought one years ago for my final rebuild.

Thanks for the blend door link to the metal one, I'll consider that depending on how this Dorman part works to install etc. The Dorman unit has a metal top pivot point, which is the spot that breaks on the old plastic ones.

The drain outlet you found is built in to try to route all coolant outside, though often some does end up inside under the rug. The heater plenum is supposed to be made with a low spot at the front, and make that flow out through the firewall.

Here's a picture I have of my 99 with the dash and all out of it.

This one is without the dash, but after I had put the AC box back in there. Another member had asked about where the air inlet sensor hose attached. It's there where the white elbow goes on.

This is my 99 firewall from the front, underneath. It didn't have the insulation I mentioned before, the models I've noticed with it, have it mounted on the vertical section. It would go basically on most of that green section from the bottom seam up to the upper seam. I thought about when I saw it in junkyards, but figured an aftermarket material would be just as good.
