Where and how do i get to the heater core on 1993 Buick Skylark


Replacing a heater core is a all day ugly job. You have to remove the dashboard and heater box. Its located behind the glove box. Best thing to do is buy a auto repair manual for your car and read up on this job.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

How do I change a Heater core on a 1990 Buick Century


Inspect/Replace If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
Heater Housing
  • The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core.
  • Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of car. It threfore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.
f74-01.gif The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core. Heater Core
  • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
  • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
  • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
  • Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
  • Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
  • To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps.
When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.

Specifically where is the heater core located on a 96 Buick Skylark 4 cyl. w/air?


Hi there,

Well the heater core is located under the dash on the passenger side, usually cased in a plastic housing.You may have to remove the glove box in order to have access to. And when you get to the point, when you are disconnecting the coolant lines and remove the core you use some clothes to protect the carpet as fluid may drip. Post comments for further help or information........
Good Luck!!
Thanks for using FixYa!!

Removal of heater core 1992 buick skylark


You locate the heater core by following the heater hoses in the engine compartment. These hoses need to be disconnected. Then, working inside the passenger compartment, take off all of the control panel. You'll see screws underneath if you lie on your back. The only trick is to pop out the vent louvers -- just pop them out with a screw driver. There are screws behind them. Take out the glove box. Take off the heater outlet duct and the heater core cover. Pull the heater core straight back to avoid breaking the drain tube. Remove some clamps and that's it.

Water under dash board 1983 buick skylark


Your heater core needs to be replaced. The heater core is like a mini radiator, providing heat for the interior by coolant circulating from the engine, into the heater core, and back to the engine again. Like a radiator, a heater core can spring a leak, especially w/ age as a factor. This results in the leak inside the car, which also causes the 'smoke' you see, which is actually vapor form of coolant.
