My friend needs to replace his heater core for his 71 chevy caprice and he doesnt know where it is located at. also, does he have to drain the heating system first for it to work?

    so is this going to be the cooling system that is drained then, or is it the HVAC system? also, any pictures or diagrams, or their locations, would be extremely helpful. thanks for everything so far :)

Yes he has to drain the system. It is located at the bottom of the dashboard. If looking into the engine compartment, you will see whre the hoses connecting to the heater core go into the cab at the back firewall.The heater core is just inside the cab.

    I don't have a diagram, but if he is going to replace the heater core, then the location is under the dashboard. it looks like a small radiator. it is kind of hard to remove becauseof the lack of space. If the problem is that the heater does not work, it could be the thermostat too.that has to be replaced..

Where is the heater core located at on the 93 caprice ,is it behind the glove box ,or do I have to remove the whole dash


WOW, sorry it has taken so long for someone to see and respond to your question. You've probably figured it out on your own by now, but if not, here is your answer. The heater core in your Caprice is located behind the glove box. To gain access, you have to remove the lower right dash insulator panel (below the glove box) and than the glove box. Remove any vaccuum lines ( mark their locations.) Then remove the lower instrument panel brace and then the heater core cover. Remove the heater core clamp bolt and clamp. Disconnect the heater hoses from the heater core on the left hand side of the engine compartment( looking at the engine from the front of the car.) Then remove the heater core.

Replace heater core on 1992 buick roadmaster


It appears I was incorrect about removing the dash assembly, here are the instructions from a Buick owners club.

Under the passenger dash is an access panel that will allow you to remove the heater core, it really isn't that hard, there are lots of little dash screws and panel screws to remove before you get where you need to be but at least it is roomy. The AC evaporator is located by the heater core. I will give you a tip. I changed mine last year and the heater core that I ordered for my 92 Roadmaster was not correct, when I took my old one out and matched it in a book at the local part store, the heater core for my vehicle was listed as a 96 Caprice???? The car has been in my family since it was purchased new and the heater core had never been changed!!!! Explain that one!Oh yeah, one more tip, if your heater core is leaking, this access panel lowers towards you, if there is nasty sweet smelling water in there it will pour all over you, be careful! Caprice parts are the same as a Roadmaster,so if you ever need anything just look up caprices
