SOURCE: heater core replacement

It's one of the easiest cores to replace that I have encountered. Disconnect heater hoses at firewall. Probably doesn't matter about hose placement, but I always mark them just in case. To remove the fiber cover under dash, take a flat blade screwdriver and pry out the center pin of the expansion clips that hold it in place. There are four 5/16 head screws that hold the bottom/drain tray cover. Core will pull through the firewall and then down. You may have to silicone/glue or replace the foam seal strips on the new core. Before you install the core, check the distance between the inlet and outlet tubes to ensure they match the openings in the firewall. This saves time. It helps if you have someone on the outside to guide you when stabbing the tubes through the firewall. Replace bottom cover. You may have to hold one of the tubes when reinstalling the first hose to the core. Replace any lost coolant and check for leaks prior to reinstalling the fiber cover. If the cover seal is in good condition, any leak should drain through the firewall, otherwise it may leak inside cab. .

SOURCE: diagram bypass heater cord on 2001 ford expedition eddie bauer

the heater bypass is quite simple, if you look at the firewall you will see two medium sized coolant lines, remove them from the firewall and link them together using a proper sized tube, you can purchase a kit at a parts store quite cheaply

SOURCE: 2001 ford focus heater switch

I have just managed to fix the blower in my 2004 Ford Focus. Only worked on number 4 which cuts out the AC. Garage quoted me £40 for part and £40 for labour. I brought a second hand resistor from these people (very helpful and only £10 plus VAT) http://www.breakeryard.com/view_supplier_feed...

. Arrived next day. To replace the old one you just remove the 3 screws under the glove box and pull the box out. In front of you will be a big barrel which is the fan. To the bottom right of this you will see the old resistor. This is held in by one screw. Remove this and pull out the fixed wires. Put in the new part, re attach the wires and put the screw back. Job done. Should take about 15mins.
Hope this helps somebody somewhere

I think i have a bad heater core on 2001 ford focus zx3, but the passenger side carpet is not wet,so what is it?


the heater core is enclosed in a sealed plastic canister with a drain to the outside, when it ruptures water goes outside, that's why you will not see water inside, but you will be able to smell coolant inside, and windshield could steem up.

it is either a faulty part or when the heater core was installed the core was not installed correctly..they may have not reinstalled the mounting brackets for the heater core..incorrect instalation will either cause the brackets to rub through the core or allow the core to vibrate an break

Water leaking inside 2001 ford focus passenger side floor


The ford focus and Taurus models from this period are notorious for water leakage. Unfortunately it can be from two possible causes. Lets start with easiest first. The water dam (black plastic) where the windshied meets the hood (on outside) sometimes pulls away from glass allowing water to run into the crack and then into the dash and into primarily passenger side. The fix for this is listed in a TSB by Ford and the dealer can install, for a price ofcourse, a replacement damn that helps. For my sons Taurus to diagnose if this was the true problem we put a piece of clear packing tape over the place where the dam meets the windshield making sure it was sealed to glass tightly and then waited for next rain and it was dry so that fixed it. SECOND possible cause is a bad heater core. If the wetness smells sweet like radiator fluid or sugary sweet then this is probably a coroded heater core that leaks radiator fluid into the passenger compartment. It is located in center of dash closest to passenger side. Unfortunately if this is the case it needs to be replaced and a radiator shop will charge anywhere between 250 to 500 to do the job with part included. If it is the HEATER core you should check your coolant level regularly because it operates on pressure and with a leakign heater core you can lose pressure and possible have engine overheating. Good luck

Heater core 2001 ford tauras


These are on of the hardest heater cores in the industry to replace. A typical garage will get between $800.00 and $1200.00 to replace, the dealer will get $1600.00 because you have to completely remove the steering column the dash, discharge the A/C system reomve the heater box, split it and replace the core. The job is so labor intensive you would be crazy not to replace the A/C evaporator at the same time. This is not a job for an amature or ever a class "B" tech. leave this one to the Pro's.
