Can I change heater core in 1989 s10 2.5 no air without taking dash out


The dash does not have to be removed for heater core replacement. Remove any paneling for heater box access and remove box assembly and change core. Flat rate time at a shop is about 1.9 hours to complete this repair

How do I change my heater core in my 1996 ford ranger


The heater core is located in the heater box, under the passenger side of the dash. Most FORD heater boxes are snap-clipped together, and if you remove the rear panel from the heater box, you will see the heater core...it looks like a smaller radiator...twist the heater hose off of the heater core (x2) from the engine side and gently remove the heater core from under the dash. When replacing the new heater core, be very careful re-installing new hoses to the core...it is a fragile thin metal that can leak almost instantly if tweaked too roughly...replace all parts in reverse order of removal.

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

Heater core needs to be changed


when your heater core goes bad, generally it leaks inside the car and can leave a odor of antifreeze. It can effect colling of the engine...so I would change it.

It is behind the dash..but not a huge deal..take your time some saturday afternoon & youll have it

NO, BUT THE COMPLETE HVAC MODULE NEEDS TO BE REMOVED. THIS IS BASICALLY THE LARGE BLACK AIR DISTRIBUTION BOX LOCATED UNDER THE RH SIDE OF DASH. THE RH BODY MOUNT BUSHINGS ARE ALSO GOING TO NEED REMOVAL & THE BODY SLIGHLTY RAISED TO GAIN ACCESS TO CORE UNDERHOOD.
