Question about Ford Expedition
You need to disconnect the two heater hoses going into the heater core. These hoses will go from the thermostat housing or the water pump to the firewall of the vehicle. You can just disconnect the two hoses from the firewall connection and place a nipple in between the two hoses using good hose clamps to connect the two hoses. That is all you need to do to bypass the heater. Good luck.

It's a big job. Drain the coolant down, recover the freon in the ac system and disconnect the lines and heater hoses. Lower the steering column, remove the instrument panel assembly, remove the heater housing. Split the case halves on the housing and there you are. Usually around 500 to 700 dollars at a dealership.

The heater core should be encased in a box up inside the dash.The best way to find this is to locate the heater hoses that go through the fire wall(about 1 1/4 in diameter).This is a very tight job and you will spend most of you time laying on the floor taking out screws.Be careful not to loose any of the heater core casing screws or bolts and when refilling the coolant system fill the radiator directly,start the engine with the radiator cap off,the level will drop,fill the radiator the rest of the way and replace the cap,allow the engine to reach normal operating temp.(about 10 to 15 minutes)so that the themostat will open and then allow the engine to cool and recheck fluid level.

Yes it can be done. look at your engine on it there will be two heater hoses coming from the engine to the heater, disconnect those two heater hoses at engine, with heater hose and two hose clamps, get the hose and clamp first at auto parts, install one end and the other end of same hose, where you disconnected the heater hoses from the engine, you have just by-pass the heater, hope this was very helpful.
