SOURCE: How do you remove moisture from inside of

if the car is old enough and you don't care you can drill three holes in the base of the front of the light to empty it out so you don't have to change the bulb constantly due to it flooding as i did or you simply can go to the dollar store and get some gasket stuff and take it apart and dry it and the use the gasket stuff to permanent seal I am going to try this myself as i have heard of this and will let you know further in a day or so plus i have to fill the drill holes because i still have the holes and that causes condensation but not the flooding that was burning out the bulbs.

SOURCE: How do you replace a oil pan on a 1985 Ford Tempo Do you have to remove engine?

u should not have to remove pan. if the seal is leaking just replace. when u loosen the bolts it will provide enough room to replace gasket.
if you really have to replace the pan. you have to loosen the motor mounts and jack up the engine a little. be very careful!!!!

Heater switch replacment


Hello! it's my job to make things as easy for the customer as possible...Therefore I must ask why you want to replace the heater switch? Is it because you have lost one or two of the switch speeds? Your vehicle is noted for loss of the Blower Motor Resistor...
Changing the Heater switch means removal of the Climate Control Assembly which is not the easiest of jobs...I've included the process...But are you sure the blower resistor is OK? If you have lost 1,2, or all blower motor speeds it's more than likely the Resistor pack. And a lot easier to change...

How do you access the 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.
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.
