Q: Heater Core Replacement (Non-A/C)
I need to replace my heater core. The service manual is not to much help. How should I go about it? How tough is it:? should I forget it and just drive when its warm?
A: It’s a tough job. Even tougher if your car has factory A/C. The core is fastened inside the air box behind the glove box. If the car doesn’t have A/C, I think you can get to all the bolts without removing the passenger side fender well. The control cables are easy to remove and replace. While you have the heater box out, it’s a good time to clean it up and freshen it up with a new coat of semi-flat black.
If your car has factory A/C, drop me a line off-list and I’ll try to help you through the details.
