Go to auto parts store and buy HAYNES REPAIR MANUAL #36086 (should be for make and model of car) will need masking tape, marker, sandwich baggies
in book follow all directions for taking all panels off dash & will tell you every bolt to remove dash
(steering column will need to come out before dash) label everything you unhook.

How to reconnect the heater hose from the motor side of the firewall on a 1997 ford thunderbird 4.6 v8


Provided the hose bib for the heater hose is still sticking out of the firewall the hose slips over the bib and then a hose clamp is tightened over the hose. But it's possible that the bib is broken off and then heater core is going to need to be changed

      Heater core leaking,and want to know location and how to get it out


      Lcation is underneath the dashboard, and to remove it, is very difficultImage Not Available

      ';" src="http://partimages.genpt.com/thumbs/895515.jpg" onload="OnImageLoad();" border="0" />
      If you really dont need it, just unhhook the heater by pass hoses, and cap them off...But you basically have to remove the dashboard to get to it..It is in the same casing with your evaporator...Goodluck..

      Airbag dashboard light keeps blinking. In 1997 Ford Thunderbird.


      The air bag computer will have to be scanned and the code read to know what the fault the computer detects. The problem will have to be repaired for the light to shut off. Keep in mind, when the air bag light is illuminated the air bag system is deactivated. Meaning, in the event of a collision the bags won't deploy.

      Heater core


      email me at fordtech2005@gmail.com and I will be happy to email you pictures on how to do it. the flat rate labor time to do this repair is 7.5 hours which basically means that the whole dash must come out, also you will need to disconnect your a/c system to remove heater core.

      Need to replace heater core I need to replace my heater core and want to know the best way to do it


      You will have to remove the entire dash assembly and then remove the air conditioning/heater case and this will enable you to have access replace the heater core, this is a really tough job did it 3 or 4 times while working at a Ford dealer, took 10 hours and I had allot of experience, unless you have allot of tech savvy I would pay someone to do it, I would, and I am a Professional mechanic.
