It's a big job. Drain the coolant down, recover the freon in the ac system and disconnect the lines and heater hoses. Lower the steering column, remove the instrument panel assembly, remove the heater housing. Split the case halves on the housing and there you are. Usually around 500 to 700 dollars at a dealership.

Where is heater core located on 96 dodge caravan


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

Heater core 1999 dodge caravan


To replace the core means the complete dash assembly must be removed. This job takes allot of skill and about 10-14 hours to complete for an amateur. You will absolutely need the factory manuals to have any hope of getting it all back together again and all systems work. You can download the factory repair manuals here.

Heater wont switch from cold to hot


Caravans, seem to build up an "AIR" pocket at the heater core. If you have had to add coolant/anti-freeze you may have a "vapor" lock, at the heater core. On my daughter's, I removed the return line after the motor cooled some, had wife just "tap" the starter, until coolant came out, & re-attached the hose. (GM, added "bleeders" to resolve their issues with the same problem.
