Have replaced my heater core in my 2001 regular cab 4wd in december 2009. Had to pull the complete dash including the complete metal dash behind the dash that you see. Also had to remove the right passenger side inner fender well to acess the remaining two bolts that hold the heater core cover to the firewall. Its an insane job to do but the repair shop books call for 9 1/2 hrs to do the job. I'm not an expert but this is what it takes.

You will need to pull the dash and a bunch of other components in order to access the heater core. Getting ready to do the same repair and really not looking forward to it.

How do I take out replace the heater coil in my S-10 Chevy truck?


No you do not, I think you mean the heater core, because its leaking, first unhook heaters hoses under hood (there may be a clamp on the core tubes that has to come off), next go under dash on passengers side, take the one bolt to the far right under dash by the dome light, thats so you can pull the dash out just enought to get the cover off the front of the heater box, behind that cover is the heater core, now that cover is held on with about 6 1/4 inch screws give or take 1 or 2 when you get the cover off you will see 2 straps, one on each end that hold the core in place, there are 2 1/4 screws in each one, remove them and core will come out. Put back together in reverse order.

I have a 97 chevy s10 4.3 v6 4x4. my heater core went out and i was wanting know if there is any way to replace it without taking the whole dash out.


Sorry, your going to have to remove the dash.
  • Remove the front dash panel by turning the lower screws in a counter-clockwise direction, then unscrewing the single bolt on the lip of the instrument cluster and pulling the panel out. Remove the rear wiper switch and the 4x4 switches, if applicable. Lowering the tilt wheel will allow the panel to be totally removed.
  • Remove the radio, headlight switch module and glove box by turning their screws in a counter-clockwise direction.
  • Remove the main dashboard by unbolting it at the front, between the windshield and firewall. There are six to eight bolts holding it in, and, once they are removed, the dash can be pulled away from the firewall. Be careful not to pull too much, as the wiring harness could become damaged.
  • Drain the coolant system by turning the drain plug on the lower left corner of the radiator and allowing the fluid to fall into the drain pan. Uncapping the radiator can reduce the internal pressure.
  • Remove the heater core hose, on the upper left of the engine bay by pinching their hose clamps with a pair of pliers and pulling them off. Some models will have screw-type hose clamps; turning them counter-clockwise will loosen them. Age and heat may have stuck the hoses to the core nipples, and the hoses can be cut right at these nipples if necessary. Leave enough hose to reconnect the new core.
  • Unbolt the heater core's mounts with a socket wrench in a counter-clockwise direction. Once the bolts are free, the heater core can be maneuvered toward the windshield and slid out. Some coolant may splash out, so have a towel handy.
  • Replace the heater core with a new one by sliding it into place and securing the mounting bolts.
  • Reconnect the heater core's hoses, turn the radiator's drain plug clockwise to close it, then refill the coolant system with a 50/50 percent mix of coolant and water.
  • Reconnect the dashboard to the firewall, then replace the front dash panel and fasten its instrument cluster screw and bottom bolts.
  • Crank up the Jimmy and add coolant until the heater core is filled and blowing hot air.
  • Replace the radiator cap.
Good luck and make sure you have lots of time and use the camera on your cell phone and take pictures to use as reference.
