    The TX valve is Napa# 207303. It is from a 87 Mazda 323. Externally it is just about identical. There is also a TX valve 207313 from an 80's vintage Sabb 900 that is similar but the small copper tubes from the equalizer is much longer than on the Mazda unit. The other difference is the super heat rating. The Mazda is at 5 the Saab unit is an 8.

    Thanks Kris. I'll get one tomorrow, have it drained yet again and do it then. It should take all of 5 minutes to replace as it is conveniently placed in the front boot. (Or is that the semi-thermal pre-heat thermoresistor for the ignition system I'm looking at??!!)

    Cheers,

    Hi guys,

    I'm also in need of a new expansion valve for my 1987 328... Very good information here. Wanted to see if anyone had additional thoughts on this? Need to jump on a part here ASAP.


    Thanks,

    --Mike

    Any capable auto A/C shop can match it and order it for you.
