I found a link with video instructions on how to remove the dashboard. I think this can guide you. You might have a different car make but the process of removing dashboard will make sense with regard to your question.

Check under the dash, there you find a panel , remove it. There you find the heater core, first remove the hoses connected then remove screws.

I have a 1996 grand prix se I believe that my heater core is leaking how hard is it to change it in this vehicle


It's a big job. The heater core is accessed from inside the car under the dash. If your car has a center console, it must be removed, along with the glove box and the under dash covers. Then you'll see the actual heater box. Removing the box will show you the core, but you'll need to go under the hood to disconnect the heater hoses before you can remove it. Obviously, you need to drain the cooling system first.
Also note, when you replace the core and put the heater box back in, the box has to be sealed for proper operation. In some cases, either RTV sealant can be used, or foam tape.

How to remove heater core 2004 grand prix


The entire dash does not need to be removed.
Disconnect the heater inlet and outlet hoses which enter the firewall directly under the 'hard lines' for the AC'. near the center/driver side of the fire wall. Note: A cable operated clamp removal tool helps access. They sell them at Autozone in the 'OEM' tool section)
Remove the lower kick panels on both sides.
Remove the seats and console and carpet (to access and remove the duct which goes from the bottom of the heater core outlet cover to the back seat area)
Remove the outer heater core cover.
(Note: First time through the outer heater core cover is held on only by heat stakes, no screws. You need to break the head of each of these heat stakes (look like donuts) to remove the case.
Remove the inner heater core cover (also heat stakes).
Remove the heater core.
Installation is reverse of removal.
You'll need to drill the marked dimples next to each of the now broken heat stakes. Drill 5.5mm holes in cover in these areas and replace cover with screws which should be available from GM dealer.

The heater corps in my truck went out


To replace the heater core in that model truck you will need to remove the whole dash, steering colum. Then discharge the A/C and remove the heater/a/c case. It is a time consuming job and difficult without the proper tools and info. If you are going to attempt this then be sure to disable the air bag system by disconnecting the battery for at least 10 min. before you start working. Good Luck

How do you remove the console in a 95 grand am se


It is very hard!! You actually are supposed to remove the whole dash!! I took a shortcut and just took the screws out of the plastic box under the dash where the heater core is,behind the console, next to the floorboard, and cut it across the back on the bottom. You then have to get under the car to remove this screw that is on the firewall between the 2 heater core hoses..then remove the hoses from the heater core on the firewall. Then you can get back inside the vehicle and it will pull out. When you replace, the cover that you cut, just put the screws back in and put some tape across where you cut the cover off. It saved me from having to take the whole dash out, and having to spend $300 to have a mechanic replace my heater core!!

Heater core replacement


You do not have to do anything with the air conditioning, its all inside car under right side of dash. 1. go under hood and unhook heater hoses and bracket( if equiped) from core tubes. 2. go under dash right side remove 13mm bolt far right under dash thats so you can pull dash out a little ways to get cover off heater where heater core is.3. 1/4 in. socket set and 1/4 in. socket take screws out holding cover on look close there is one hidden top far right can't remember how maney 5 or 6 i think, screws all out use a little finess and remove cover and there will be your heater core. Good luck.

Removing/replacing a 2000 kia sportage 4x4 4 dr heater core


The heater is located under the dash board to the right and down from the radio. To remove and replace it you will have to remove the dash board down to the fire wall. Also, you will have to disconnect two hoses that connect up to it from the engine compartment. These are located in the back of the engine and down on the firewall about midway. Once you remove the dash board and locate the heater core you will be able to see the location of these two hoses. Removing the heater core is time consuming but it will save you about 700 dollars.

Heater core replacement


It's one of the easiest cores to replace that I have encountered. Disconnect heater hoses at firewall. Probably doesn't matter about hose placement, but I always mark them just in case. To remove the fiber cover under dash, take a flat blade screwdriver and pry out the center pin of the expansion clips that hold it in place. There are four 5/16 head screws that hold the bottom/drain tray cover. Core will pull through the firewall and then down. You may have to silicone/glue or replace the foam seal strips on the new core. Before you install the core, check the distance between the inlet and outlet tubes to ensure they match the openings in the firewall. This saves time. It helps if you have someone on the outside to guide you when stabbing the tubes through the firewall. Replace bottom cover. You may have to hold one of the tubes when reinstalling the first hose to the core. Replace any lost coolant and check for leaks prior to reinstalling the fiber cover. If the cover seal is in good condition, any leak should drain through the firewall, otherwise it may leak inside cab. .
