Heat in my 1994 Mercury Grand marquis stopped working abruptley. What should I be checking for? Core not clogged or leaking.


sudden failures are usually the blend door actuator. Unfortunately, you have to remove the dash to get the actuator out. It sits on top of the heater box in the second picture below. I have pasted the procedure below from autozone.com. Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6235876-no_heat_fan_blowing_cold_air . If you get stuck, please get back to me, and thanks for using FixYa.

REMOVING AUDI A4 SEERING WHEEL


For this procedure you will need a 6mm Allen key or socket, long no. 1 phillips screwdriver, 24mm socket with extension and ratchet handle.

Park the vehicle and make sure the front wheels are straight and the steering wheel centred. Remove the negative battery terminal (make sure you have the radio code first!). Under no circumstances is the airbag to be removed with the battery still connected. Serious injury can result!!

Loosen the two 6mm Allen bolts on the back of the steering wheel and CAREFULLY remove the airbag by pulling straight out on the orange connector on the back of the airbag. Always store the airbag, when removed from the vehicle, with the side facing the driver in the UP position, preferably out of the vehicle.

Loosen and remove the 24mm nut in the centre of the steering wheel. Make note of the position of the wheel relative to the steering shaft with a marker or scribe. Do not remove the steering wheel from the shaft as yet. Next remove the two phillips screws from the recessed holes in the bottom steering column cover. Next, remove the upper steering column cover and disconnect the two wiring connectors that come from the back of the steering wheel. Carefully remove the wires from the retainers on the steering column. With those two wires disconnected, remove the steering wheel by pulling it straight off towards you. Place the steering wheel on a bench or other flat surface so the wiring and connectors are not damaged.

Installation is in the reverse order.

How do i get the dash off to pull the old radio out


I'm not totally sure about the La Sabre, but there should be trim screws that hold the Dash face plate in place. There are three on the top portion of the face plate, and I think three on the bottom . The face plate extends from Light switch on left to radio on right. You may have to tilt the steering wheel column down to remove the face plate from around the steering wheel. From what I remember, the only thing that needs to be unplugged from the face plate is the plug for the rear defroster. Also, there are clips that hold the face plate in place. They just push in and out. Once the face plate is off, you can get to the radio mounting screws.
