    Expansion valve- supposed to have this plastic cover on bulb?

    My old one has some insulation and a plastic cover over a round bulb on the back end of the expansion valve. The new one does not come with such a cover. Is is supposed to or did someone leave the packing in place on the old one? Thanks.

    Always wanted to wake up an old thread and this one is relevant as my evaporator is out. Cap on or off?

      Yes, insulate the expansion valve. A good reference is Bob Siegel's "Just Needs a Recharge"

              If you're too stingy to buy the book - read the blog:
