REMOVAL

WARNING:

  • ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS, DISABLE THE AIRBAG SYSTEM BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. DISCONNECT AND ISOLATE THE BATTERY NEGATIVE (GROUND) CABLE, THEN WAIT TWO MINUTES FOR THE AIRBAG SYSTEM CAPACITOR TO DISCHARGE BEFORE PERFORMING FURTHER DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. THIS IS THE ONLY SURE WAY TO DISABLE THE AIRBAG SYSTEM. FAILURE TO TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN AN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY.
  • REVIEW THE WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS IN THE FRONT OF THIS SECTION BEFORE PERFORMING THE FOLLOWING OPERATION. See: Heating and Air Conditioning\Service Precautions
  1. Remove the HVAC housing from the vehicle. See: Heating and Air Conditioning\Housing Assembly HVAC\Service and Repair
  2. Remove the foam gasket surrounding the core tubes. NOTE: Notice the orientation of the irregularly shaped gasket on the tubes. The gasket must be placed correctly to ensure proper sealing against the body during reinstallation
    1. Remove the screws and retainers that secure the heater core and tubes to the HVAC housing.
    2. Remove the mode door actuator if necessary for clearance to remove the core.
      1. Lift the heater core straight up and out of the HVAC housing.
      2. When replacing individual tubes, loosen and remove the round tube-to-core clamp, and pull tube from core.
      INSTALLATION

      WARNING: REVIEW THE WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS IN THE FRONT OF THIS SECTION BEFORE PERFORMING THE FOLLOWING OPERATION. See: Heating and Air Conditioning\Service Precautions

      Any kinks or sharp bends in the refrigerant plumbing will reduce the capacity of the entire air conditioning system. Kinks and sharp bends reduce the flow of refrigerant in the system. A good rule for the flexible hose refrigerant lines is to keep the radius of all bends at least ten times the diameter of the hose. In addition, the flexible hose refrigerant lines should be routed so they are at least 80 millimeters (3 inches) from the exhaust manifold.

      High pressures are produced in the refrigerant system when the air conditioning compressor is operating. Extreme care must be exercised to make sure that each of the refrigerant system connections is pressure-tight and leak free. It is a good practice to inspect all flexible hose refrigerant lines at least once a year to make sure they are in good condition and properly routed.


      1. When installing individual tubes, insert tube into core ensuring that tube O-ring is seated in core and not pinched. Hold tube in seated position while installing the round tube-to-core clamp. NOTE: The round tube-to-heater-core clamp should be left loose enough to turn the tube in the core. Position the core in the housing, and then tighten the tube-to-heater-core clamp after orienting the tubes to the molded HVAC housing.
      2. Lower the heater core into the HVAC housing.
      3. Install the mode door actuator, if removed from housing for core removal.
      4. Position the retainers over the heater core tubes. Install and tighten the screws that secure the heater core and retainers to the HVAC housing. Tighten the screws to 2.2 Nm (20 in. lbs.) . NOTE: The grounding strap is to be attached to the lower heater core tube retainer.
      5. Reinstall the HVAC housing to the vehicle. See: Heating and Air Conditioning\Housing Assembly HVAC\Service and Repair

    1. Position the HVAC housing to the dash panel. Be certain that the evaporator condensate drain tube and the housing mounting studs are inserted into their correct mounting holes.
    2. Install the HVAC housing mounting nuts to the studs on the passenger compartment side of the dash panel. Tighten the nuts to 4.5 Nm (40 in. lbs.) .
    3. Connect the HVAC housing wire harness connectors.
    4. Reinstall the rear floor heat ducts to the center floor heat duct outlets.
    5. Install and tighten the nuts onto the HVAC housing mounting studs on the engine compartment side of the dash panel. Tighten the nuts to 7 Nm (60 in. lbs.) .
    6. Reinstall the PCM to the passenger side dash panel in the engine compartment. See: Powertrain Management\Computers and Control Systems\Engine Control Module\Service and Repair
    7. Reinstall the coolant reserve/overflow bottle to the passenger side inner fender shield. See: Engine, Cooling and Exhaust\Cooling System\Coolant Reservoir
    8. If the vehicle is equipped with the manual temperature control system, connect the HVAC system vacuum supply line connector to the tee fitting near the heater core tubes.
    9. Unclamp/unplug the heater core hoses and tubes. Connect the heater hoses to the heater core tubes and fill the engine cooling system. See: Engine, Cooling and Exhaust\Cooling System\Service and Repair
    10. Unplug or remove the tape from the suction line and the evaporator outlet tube fittings. Connect the suction line to the evaporator outlet tube. Tighten retaining nut to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.) .
    11. Unplug or remove the tape from the liquid line and the evaporator inlet tube fittings. Connect the liquid line to the evaporator inlet tube. Tighten retaining nut to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.) .
    12. Evacuate the refrigerant system. See: Refrigerant\Service and Repair
    13. Charge the refrigerant system. See: Refrigerant\Service and Repair
    14. Install the instrument panel in the vehicle. Refer to: Body and Frame, Interior Trim, Dashboard/Instrument Panel, Service and Repair, Instrument Panel Service Procedures, Instrument Panel Assembly Replacement, See: Body and Frame\Interior Moulding / Trim\Dashboard / Instrument Panel\Service and Repair\Procedures\Instrument Panel Assembly Replacement
    15. Connect the battery negative cable.
    16. Start the engine and check for proper operation of the heating and air conditioning systems.

You probably have a leak in the heater core which is creating steam in the defrost system. So the heater core most likely needs to be replaced.

Not a bad gasket, as there is no gasket. The heater core has developed a small leak and needs to be replaced or repaired. This is a big job, as the entire dash has to come out of the Jeep. The cost of the part is $77 at autozone, but the labor is several hours at a good shop. We have the procedure and can send it if you would like to do this job yourself. Just let me know.

Advice on heater /airconditioning system 2002 grand cheroke. leaking between firewall underneath glove box around foam rubber seal


is it leaking clear water or oily green antifreeze? clear water is the condensation from the a/c system leaking out where it shouldn't. the tube leading from the case to the engine compartment could be clogged, leaves and stuff have a way of finding themselves in there. could need the rubber grommet replaced, i believe there was a TSB around this model year for that very thing.
if its green oil antifreeze, your heater core is leaking. the dash needs to be removed for this fix

Heater core 2002 jeep grand cher.


I purchased a Blen Door repair kit. for my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee after having only cold air blow out of the passenger side for over a year. I found it on EBay. It requires you remove the glove box, cut open the heater box and replace the blend door. I really didn't want to cut that open, however, with the tape that comes with it, I have had no problems with it leaking any air. The dual control no longer works, the temperature is now completely controlled by the drivers side, but to save $1200, I was willing to do this. I have taken the entire thing out before to replace the heater core, didn't want to do it again.
