How do you remove the heater floor duct that takes heat from the heater to the rear seat? Do you have to remove the floor mat, and if so, how is that done?


Take out the front seats and console(if equipped) to access the ducts under the carpet. Heater core is a 5 hour job for trained technicians.
Once the seats are out, remove the sill plates and maybe even the rear seat for access.
Many people cut the ducts and use duct tape to reinstall.

Wow! Actual use for duct tape, as intended!

2013 Edge. Blower motor is fine,BUT NO heat...????


Hello, Sounds like the flap that controls the cold air and hot air duct is not working. One duct pulls air through the heater core where the other duct draw air from the outer vent. If that flap is not working, allowing you to pull from the heater core duct, then either the switch/lever that controls the flap is faulty (more likely) or the flap is stuck (less likely). Hope this helps.

My heater fan only works on the 3 and 4 speeds


Hi,
Common problem here, The heater motor resistor has to be checked, (located in air-flow ) between motor housing and ducting to heater assy ! Usually 4/5 wired componant located for cooling purposes in air duct governing the heater motor voltage ! Good Luck

I have no heat when I turn on my heater blower on a 99 silverado 1500


Two things come to mind one the flap on the inside of the air duct is not switching over to allow heat to come through. Second your heater core could have a blockage. Go under the hood find both heater hoses run your truck till it reaches normal operating temp then feel both heater hoses one at a time. If one feels very hot and the other feels cold or even luke warm you have a blockage.If they both feel hot then look into the duct works under the dash. There should be a valve that switches the door between your heater duct and your ac duct that may not be operating properly. Some valves are vacume actuated so look for a broken vacume line.

Heater blowes cold air replaced heater controls and all vales are working the heater core gets hot on both sides so how do i fix this


It seems to me if your heater core is hot, and the fan blows cold air, then your ducting is closed off. Try and see if your duct door is opening up. You say you changed out your controls, but it sounds as though it wasn't your controls that were bad, but what they control is not opening up.
It's all well and good that the heater core is getting hot, but if the fan cannot deliver that hot air passing through it, then walah.
It has to be an air duct obstruction. Either the ducting is collapsed, the duct door is not opening, or you have some obstruction blocking the ducting. My guess, because that is all I can give you without seeing for myself, is that the linkeage or solonoid that opens the duct door is not working. Older cars had a cable, but I believe newer use a solonoid to operate the opening and closing of the door. The door is there so you don't get the heat from the core when you are using AC.
Hope this helps.
