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.

SOURCE: replacment of heater core on 01 chevy S-10

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.

Whats the easiest way to R&R a Heater core on a 1997 Kia Sportage? Have coolant leaking into passenger floor pan.


The EASY way, thought not necessarily pretty, but it works... get a rotary cutting tool (ie Dremel) and cut the rectangular cover for the heater core under the dash... one the two heater lines are disconnected, the core should slide right out.... put the new core in, then glue the cut away plastic with RTV silicone seal, re-attach the two hoses, and you're good to go.... otherwise, its a nightmare of pulling out nearly the entire dash, disconnecting the A/C lines, etc. not something I'd want to undertake... so this EASY solution will get the job done, without costing you an arm and a leg at the mechanic.

Removing/replacing a 2000 kia sportage 4x4 4 dr heater core


The heater is located under the dash board to the right and down from the radio. To remove and replace it you will have to remove the dash board down to the fire wall. Also, you will have to disconnect two hoses that connect up to it from the engine compartment. These are located in the back of the engine and down on the firewall about midway. Once you remove the dash board and locate the heater core you will be able to see the location of these two hoses. Removing the heater core is time consuming but it will save you about 700 dollars.
