disconnect heater hoses remove heater core.
When connecting heater hoses, make sure you connect them the same way again, and apply sealant to the hoses before tightenting clamps. You sure like hell don't want a leak after you mount everything back.
I ran the heater while I had the dash board off just to make sure there were no leaks. Reverse procedures to install at your discrection. Suggest you follow all steps in reverse so you don't end up with screws you can't figure out where they go.
Its about a two day job if you do it alone. They charge 900 at the dealer for doing this. Can't understand why in the world FORD just doesnt make an access system so you can remove the core without removing the dash board. Yes I do...........MONEY! No wonder American car mfg. are in such a pitiful state the the foreign car market is kicking ***. American cars to change the fuel pump you have to drop the tank. Japanese cars to change the fuel pump you go to the hatch over the tank remove the hatch and remove the pump. Get the picture!!!!!! Good Luck.
