Re: Dashboard removal 1984 lincoln mark 7
I removed a dash from an 89 mark VII, from a junkyard. it took me all day. so many things to dissconnect. move both seats as far back as possible and bring a lunch, you will need it. start on passenger side and work your way to the drivers side. while you have the dash out check the vent fan motor and ac evap.

Your best bet is , if you are a auto zone rewards member you can down load the information after typing in heater core in the parts needed box . THEN CLICK HEATER CORE , THEN ON THE RIGHT HAND OF SCREEN CLICK ON YOUR RIDE YOUR GUIDE. BEST OF LUCK.
This will be a big job. The heater core is tucked up under the dashboard. In some cases you can get the heater core out without removing the dashboard, in other cases some or most of the dashboard will need to come out.
If you are entertaining tackling this job yourself, you will definitely need a service manual. The ones from automotive stores, Haynes, Chilton, etc, will provide generic instructions. For specific detailed instructions, order a Workshop manual for your vehicle. It will provide detailed instructions on how to remove, test, repair, replace the heater core.
In general, the Haynes and similar manuals provide basic information for those who have skill in repairing vehicles with little assistance. The Workshop manuals also require skill but are dedicated to just one model and year and provide much more detailed instructions.
No you do not have to drop the steering column to change the heater core. It should be located under the passenger side of the dashboard. The easiest way to find where it is located would be to look under the hood for two hoses that go from the front of the engine through the firewall and that will tell you exactly where it is located. To replace the heater core you will have to disconnect the two hoses under the hood from the heater core then remove the heater box from underneath the dashboard.
If you have never done this before, you really need to go get a Haynes or Chilton manual for this. They run about $25.00 and have step by step plus pictures. I've done one in my carreer and will never do another. And it was for my son. Believe me, it's a task I don't wish on anyone.
Go check out a manual. Google "Haynes Repair Manuals". It's worth it.
