When I removed my AC panel I unclipped the attached cables on the other end, so the unit came out with the 4 cables attached.

I think you go in from underneath and spread the clip "prongs" out. Something like that... it has been a while since I've done it.

Here's the part # Jeff Lange has listed for said clip: 55933-10010

And a cross reference on said part # via ToyoDIY:

https://www.toyodiy.com/parts/xref?s=55933-10010&mU=on

(Although AE86's aren't listed above; odd)

Looks like you can pull that clip from a ton of Toyotas, so you could go junkyard hunting and grab a few. And if the AE86 part # is different you can cross reference it on ToyoDIY just like I did.

The clip isn't listed separately for the AE86, but I assure you, that's the clip you're going to want. :)

I highly doubt that. I did some intensive research on Toyo Hvacs a little bit ago when I ran into a similar issue. Those clips change VERY frequently from generation to generation. The only 100% sure visual check I could complete was cross-referencing against Tercel, 4Runner, etc. early 80s chassis. I found after a certain year, the clips were similar in design, but completely incompatible for the AE86.

Actually, in the part call-out referenced, it says AE92. Bullshit. I'll go check my spare AE92 HVAC right now.

1991 AE92:

Completely different. I don't have the ability to check all chassis listed, but I would make absolutely sure before you buy. That is, if it's even in stock; that site is just cross-referencing part call-outs.

Just go to a JY. It's free pocket **** anyway.

I'm just stoked the almighty Mr.Lange is back...
