Heater core Can you tell me if I have to remove the dash to replace the heater core on a 2000 durango. If I do, is there a way to replace the heater core without removing the heater box and therefore discharging the AC. I dont want to discharge the AC if I dont have to. Can someone help.

Heater Core Replacement


you tell us.
take it out, and see ...
the parts under the dash can change by year, sub year
and by what assembly plant made your car.
There are sub body models too. SE and others
and with climate control options? lots of variables with HVAC.

it also depends on how much damage you can stand
EG: re-saleability etc.
or join a toyota forum. real. and ask there. best advice if ever.

Best way to change heater core


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.

  • 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.

Need to install the Heater Core but can't seem to find where the heater core is placed. can you please help me locate where I can take off the old heater core to replace it with a new one.


Follow the two black hoses that are approx 3/4's of an inch , they will go to the firewall/ rear of engine.
it is very likely behind the glove box inside of the vehicle.

Replacing heater core in 2000 GMC sonoma. Dash is


Usually the whole hvac box has to come out of the vehicle to replace the heater core. Once the box is out it can be opened and the heater core removed. Be careful with all the vent doors and actuators, make note of how everything came apart. The last thing you want to do is have to remove the dash and box because something wasn't on just right. Good luck.
