Oh, it's a big pain, you have to remove the entire dash. Get yourself a Chilton / Haynes manual (buy one or borrow one from the library). Also take a look at this thread about this exact topic - http://www.fordf150.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=59067

Have ford f150 1996 wont switch to heat from cold replaced switch already


96' or 97' it makes a big difference. 96' models are very simple if you have a basic understanding of automotive work and some basic tools. remove the glove box, the heater core is located behind a panel just inside and below the glove box hole. first remove the plastic panel but not the heater core, to the left of the heater core inside the box is the blend door that separates the heater and A/C cores. this door is often obstructed by pens, pencils, or plastic junk that have fallen down into the defrost vents on top of the dash and landed in the box. something like this will stop the blend door from being able to close the A/C core off from the vents allowing cold air in. if you have big hands like mine you may need a woman or teenager to reach into the box and check for debris but you can see the door open and close when you turn the switch so you know where to check. if you have a 97' model the blend door actuator is electric and usually not accessible without removing the dash and heater/A/C box from the firewall. good luck

Heater core removal on a 99 ford expedition


To remove the heater core on this truck the entire dash must be removed, the A/C drained, and the coolant drained, once the dash is out you can access the environmental station, which houses the a/c and heater cores. The heater hoses to the core and a/c lines to evaporator core are quick disconnect and require a special tool. After removing the environmental station, disassemble the station by removing the screws, then you will be looking at the inside of the station, the core on the left side is the heater, the door is the blend door, and the core on the right is the a/c core. Re-install in reverse of disassembly, fill coolant and charge a/c. If you are not comfortable with this depth of repair I would find a reputable repair shop in your area and take it in for this repair. Hope this helps, let me know.

How to replace a heater core in a 1998 ford f150


There is no short cut or fast way to do this. The dash has to come out to access the heater box and replace the core. So the steps in replacing the heater core are to disconnect the heater hoses, remove the dash, to access the heater corecover on the front of the heater case and replace the core. Reassembly is in the reverse order as disassembly. Fill the cooling system with new coolant, and burp the air form the cooling system.

Heater core


email me at fordtech2005@gmail.com and I will be happy to email you pictures on how to do it. the flat rate labor time to do this repair is 7.5 hours which basically means that the whole dash must come out, also you will need to disconnect your a/c system to remove heater core.

first determine if the heater core is located high or low by raising the hood checking against the firewall {by following the heater hoses to the fire wall} if it is high need to remove the dash. if it is low get on your back and start removing clips and screws no special tool needed.

97 buick skylark ac evaporator core what do i need to do to get to it


Did you replace the schrader valves (the thing in the inside of the A/C service fittings, you need a special tool to remove and install them) before you recharged the system? They are notorious for leaking if they are old.

If you did not, replace those and try again, if it leaks out again with no evidence you most likely have a bad evap core.

And yes, it's a pain in the ****, plan on it taking a 30 pack of bud light and a weekend to do, or one day and a 12 pack if you are good. Just start taking the dash apart, and may the force be with you. It will be behind the glove box
