  1. Drain the cooling system to a level below the heater core.
Disconnect the coolant hoses at the heater core tubes.
  1. Remove the glove compartment.
  2. Disconnect the temperature and function cables.
  3. From inside the passenger's compartment, remove the 7 screws that secure the heater core access cover to the plenum chamber. Remove the cover.
  4. Remove the heater core.
  5. Installation is the reverse of removal. Replace any damaged sealer. ... and if your having a problem tiring to get the heater core itself you have to wiggle it till it clears ..they can be a real pain to get out.

How do I change my heater core in my 1996 ford ranger


The heater core is located in the heater box, under the passenger side of the dash. Most FORD heater boxes are snap-clipped together, and if you remove the rear panel from the heater box, you will see the heater core...it looks like a smaller radiator...twist the heater hose off of the heater core (x2) from the engine side and gently remove the heater core from under the dash. When replacing the new heater core, be very careful re-installing new hoses to the core...it is a fragile thin metal that can leak almost instantly if tweaked too roughly...replace all parts in reverse order of removal.

96 ford taurus heater does not work.


more than likely you have a heater core problem. try going to an oil change place and get a cooling flush done. if this does not solve it, then you will more than likely have to replace the heater core.

Replace the heater core on f-150


Remove the glove compartment by pushing in on the sides and let it fall open. There is a plastic cover behind where the glove compartment with some small hex head bolts (8MM or 5/16in.) take those bolts out and the cover should come off and the heater core is behind that cover. Disconnect the hoses from under the hood and cap the pipes, if my memory serves me correctly the core should pull right out. If you can't cap the pipes try to keep the pipes pointing up as you pull it out to keep the coolant spilling out of the core.
