https://youtu.be/7AZBh5jwqIg this video should help a little, as for removing the shit i could peel most of it off but also used a soft kind of brush to get into the fins, its a bit of a **** to get back on since its all a tight space and have to position it right. But the video should help decide if you want to do it

Can you actually do this without removing the evaporator and degassing the AC system? Seems like a struggle to get all the clips off?

Also I'd hazard a guess that the evaporator and it's housing are filthy on all d22s because they don't use a cabin filter

Okay I got it eventually. It ain't easy. You just have to cut the seals if you have an old d22 they will likely be almost perished anyway. There are clips at the back corners on the sides which are bastards to get to. I will attach a picture of the box as it sits facing you. Circled yellow is the location of said clips.

Also I take it back. There are two moulds, one front and one back which look like they should have clips but don't, so I think there are only 3 at the front and 3 at the back. I only put one of the back ones on as it is the easiest to reach didn't do the side ones as its pretty well impossible to get your hand up there and also I wanted easy access for if I ever need to replace the evaporator. See pic.

The dirty section on my evap was damp due to the sludge, this caused corrosion in all the fins under it, so when I cleaned the section all the fins pretty much disintegrated. Tried my best to wipe/vacuum the section.

What is that stuff, dirt? Anyway it looks better then mine did, i found that it was pretty heavily corroded in the fins, the hardest part was trying to get the clips on at the back since i could only feel if they were the actualy clip mould, that was time consuming. also my since my seals were rotting to peices i found that foam tape was a good alternative. Hope it didnt trouble you too much.

Yeah you don't take the ?evaporator out just remove the lower section of the cooling box. As said hardest bit is removing the side clips at the back, I didn't bother putting them back on as the back of the box is held up by the bolts on the firewall underneath the cooling box pretty well. And yeah the stuff on there was a mixture of dirt/grime which was really difficult to remove. Basically just picked all the corroded fins out and use a vacuum cleaner to get as much of it as possible off and create better flow through the evaporator.
