How to remove heater core in a 2000 nissan quest van

This is a BIG job, involving discharging the ac system, removing the dash, then removing the HVAC box and opening it to get to the heater core. Strongly recommend getting a Haynes or Chilton manual to have step-by-step guidance. Having another person helping will also ease the work, but expect to spend a lot of time to do this job.

How long it takes to remove a heater core in 90 dodge dakota 5.2

Depends on how much experience you have with all the procedures involved. You will have to drain coolant and discharge the a/c system, remove the a/c accumulator and brackets from the front of the firewall, disconnect the heater hoses, remove the dashboard from inside the cab, then remove the heater/a/c box. Disassemble the box to remove the heater core, then put it all back together. If you're fortunate, and have a little help, maybe 12 hours.

Why must i discharge the air conditioning refridgerant prior to removal of the heater core on a 2003 c230 mercedes 1.8l coupe.

The reason in why you must evacuate the a/c system with an a/c machine before you can remove the heater core is because the evaporator is located inside of the heater core box assembly. So before the heater core box assembly can be removed the a/c system must be evacuated then you can disconnect the a/c lines that go through the firewall to the evaporator.

How to change heater core in a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado Heater core is leaking inside the truck

I believe on this model 1500/2500 gas w/ac that you have to first evacuate the a/c system and then remove the HVAC module [fancy wording for the entire heater box assembly] then remove the core from it once you have the assembly out of the cab. I also believe its about a 6 - 7 hour job and not one you'd want to try on your own unless you have quite a bit of mechanical experience behind you as it's not an easy one to do. It's also very easy to damage the new core when reinstalling the assembly back in the cab which will truly wreck your day if that happens!

you only have to empty the ac if you have to remove the entire heater ac box from the truck to get to the heater core. heater core removeal info should be available at your library.i dont think you do but when you try to remove the parts to get out the heater you find the ac hoses moving with it yes.stil no additional work at that time as it would need to be done anyway. if you are afraid to start get the info you need from the libraey because there are many other things you need to know ! before! you begin.

Trying to get to the heater had to take all the cab apart!Now its all incased!HOw to take this appart please?

It sounds like you already removed the entire dashboard. Now the HVAC box will need to be removed if there isn't a separate opening for the heater core to be removed from. The HVAC box is bolted from inside the engine compartment and the passenger compartment. If you have A/C you will have to disconnect and discharge the a/c system. The coolant lines to the heater core will need to be disconnected as well.

Windows get like a foggy film and smells like old antifreeze. i think its my heater core? its a 95 bronco & where is it located exactly on that model?

Dear Foggy Film......
You are correct!!! This foggy film is the result of the antifreeze leaking and then evaporating inside the cab of the vehicle. The heater core on this vehicleis located inside the evaporator case inside the vehicle's cab on the firewall up underneath the dash closer to the passenger's side. It involves about three hours labor to replace the heater core.This is a moderate to mildly intensive repair for the first timer..if you have any more questions then you're more than welcome to get back to me!!!! HOPE I COULD HELP!!!

Heater core

You have to pull the dash almost out to replace the heater core. first drain the coolant and remove the heater hoses in the engine compartment. Next lower the steering column. there are 4-5 8mm screws onthe top of the dash,and tw 13mmbolts on the sides remove the kick panels to see them. Also remove the airbag module on the tranny hump under the dash.when all is unfastened you can pull the dash back on the passengers side back and almost put it on the seat. you will see the heater core on the top of the heater box. Discharge the ac and remove the heater box fasteners in the engine compartment . pull the box down inthe cab of the truck r&r core. sound worse thatn it really is good luck
