Kent shows all the inspection and test procedures on the bench. He does not go over removing the monovalve housing from the car. That is just a matter of draining coolant and disconnecting all the hoses. (on the W126 chassis you will need to remove the forward false firewall). You only need to remove the monovalve housing if it is cracked or otherwise damaged. You do not need to remove the housing to replace the internal valve. Draining some coolant (about 1 gallon) will be required if you remove and replace the mono valve from your car.
PLEASE NOTE: This video DOES NOT cover the following: No information is included that covers the automatic functions, the switch panel or power coming to the monovavle. If you replace the mono valve and are still have problems you will need to refer to the factory climate control manual for additional help.
