Need diagram for replacing heater core



    Detach the heater core hoses at the firewall. The two black hoses attach near the firewall on the passenger's side of the engine compartment. Squeeze the hose clamps on the end of the hoses with pliers and slide the hoses from the heater core tubes.

    • 4Remove the lower passenger's-side and driver's-side dashboard panels. The two panels are held in with push-pins. Raise the center of the push-pins with a small, standard screwdriver and pull the pins from the panels. Pull the panels away from the dashboard to separate them from the dashboard.
    • 5Remove the center console. Separate the gear select trim piece from the center console, using a small standard screwdriver to pry the trim piece from the center console. Lift it over the shift knob and rotate it to clear the knob. Remove the retaining screws holding the center console in place with a Phillips screwdriver. Lift the console up over the shift knob and remove it from the interior.
    • 6Remove the glove box. Open the door to the glove box. Squeeze the two retaining tabs on the ends of the glove box and pull the glove box away from the dashboard. Remove it from the interior.
    • 7Detach the drain tube from the heater core cover, which is located behind the glove box. The tube can be pulled from the heater core cover by hand. Detach the air intake duct from the bottom of the heater core cover. The air intake duct runs from the bottom of the cover to the center of the dashboard. Remove the duct by hand.
    • 8Remove the retaining screws on the black heater core cover with a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the cover from the heater core and remove it from the interior. Remove the heater core clamp screw with a Phillips screwdriver, pull the clamp away from the heater core, then pull the heater core from the housing.
    • 9Place the replacement heater core against the housing. Place the clamp over the heater core and install the clamp retaining screw with a Phillips screwdriver. Position the heater core cover over the heater core and install the retaining screws with a Phillips screwdriver.
    • 10Attach the drain tube and the air intake duct to the heater core cover.
    • 11Install the glove box. Squeeze the retaining tabs on the sides of the glove box and push it into position against the dashboard. Release the tabs when the glove box is in position.
    • 12Install the center console. Guide the console over the shift knob and install the retaining screws with a Phillips screwdriver. Slip the shift selector trim piece over the shift knob and push it into the center console.
    • 13Place the lower passenger's-side and driver's-side dashboard panel in position. Install the push-pins into the retaining holes, pushing the in center of the pin to engage the pins.
    • 14Fill the radiator with coolant. Most climates require a 50/50 mix of DEXCOOL coolant and water. 2.2L engines require 8.6 qts., 2.4L

I need to replace the heater core in my 1986 Ford Bronco 2. Are there instructions on line on how to do this?


under the dash on the pass side there is a large black plastic box. take out the 6 screws and pull off the cover. there is a wire attached to the top that controls a flap, that just lifts off. under the hood loosen and remove the 2 host clamps right at the firewall area. Push the metal tubes in to the firewall. Then reach back in from under the dash and pull out the old core. put the new one in reverse order.

How hard is it to get to the heater core ? what needs to be removed to get to it ?


The heater core is contained within the heater/air assembly. The assembly is divided by the firewall. Now if only the heater core is being removed there is no need to evacuate the refrigerant from from the air conditioning system or remove the blower motor/evaporator housing.
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Drain the cooling system.
Disconnet the heater hoses at the firewall.
Remove the glove box and the sound insulator panel below the right side of the dash. ( To remove he glove box there should be two screws underneath , you simply unscrew them and detach the glove box from the instrument panel), and of course instsallation is reverse .
Disconnect the the rod from the programmer to the blend air door by squeezing the plastic connector and pulling it out of the arm.
Disconnect the vaccuum and electrical connectors from the programmer just to the right of the heater core housing
Remove the two heater core cover mounting screws and pull the heater core cover (with programmer still attached) away from the heater housing
Remove the two core mounting screws and carefully lower the heater/air condition assembly from under the dash.
Caution : Have some old rags handy to protect the carpet from any spills of coolant .
Installation is the reverse of removal. Note: Make sure to transfer any weather stripping/sealing material from the old core or cover to the new one.

Where is that located, exactly? The heater core, I mean.


It is in the dash behind the glove box. You need to remove the lower dash bolts and pull the dash forward enough to remove the heater core cover. You need to remove the panel in the back of the glove box to access some of the bolts.

How do I change out a heater core on a 1997 GMC 1500 Pickup truck


you need to remove the glove box disconect the heater hoses look behind the glove box some heater boxes are two pieces and you can remove the heater half some you need to remove the whole piece if that is the case let a garage do it because they need to disconect the a/c so it needs to be evacuated and recharged if it is a two piece box just remove the bolts that hold the heater core under the dash and pull the box strait back good luck
