If you need to replace the heater core then sadly yes dash out. There are some excellent products on the market that are added to the radiator coolant and they will seal up a heater core leak very successfully. I used 'sealup', (comes in a plastic bottle and is a blue and brown liquid) in my Ford 4 years ago and is still perfect now, no problems at all and cost less than $20AU and took 5 minutes. Wonderfull stuff!!

i don't think that the dash has to come out, but it still is a chore to remove it, also you can go to your local library, and they will show you their repair manuals that you need to do the repair work, " the mitchell repair books can't be checked out, but you can look anything up in them, and make copies of what you want, i believe that they charge 10 cents per copy, also , you can use their computer, and it wiil show you different things abot diagnosing , and fixing problems with vehicles, it is very useful, good luck, hope that this information has helped.

Heater core 1999 dodge caravan


To replace the core means the complete dash assembly must be removed. This job takes allot of skill and about 10-14 hours to complete for an amateur. You will absolutely need the factory manuals to have any hope of getting it all back together again and all systems work. You can download the factory repair manuals here.

Need to replace a front heat blower resistor on 2002 mdx, where is located???


moz-screenshot.pngHere's an excerpt from the 2002 Acura MDX 4WD 6cyl Repair guide for replacing what the reference manual calls the "control assembly" - its located under the console rear trim and may (or may not)
contain the blower resistor - my manual doesn't say - but this is the closest thing I could find for you. Every other blower resistor I've had to find was located close to the heater controls - and this
car seems to be no exception -- its heater controls are located in the console between the seats, rather than in the dash (as in Acura 2003-06 MDX models).

You may want to call your friendly Acura dealership ad speak to the parts department, to make sure where the blower resistor is located - or a visit to a dealership parts counter often (or
Advance Auto Parts is helpful too) ofen clarifies questions I have from Haynes manuals (the cheapest car repair guides).

All this assumes that you've correctly diagnosed your blower control problem -- as in "replace the blower resistor when the blower works only on the MAX/Highest setting."

-- begin excerpt from 2001-2 Acura 4wd 6cyl MDX Repair manual --
Control Assembly Removal & Installation

2001-02 Models
  1. Remove the console rear trim. Refer to the accompanying illustration.

    Fig. Exploded view of the console rear trim

  2. Remove the self-tapping screws and the rear heater-A/C control unit (A) from the console rear trim (B).

To install:
  1. Install the control unit in the reverse order of removal. After installation, operate the control unit controls to see whether it works properly.
  2. Run the self-diagnosis function to confirm that there are no problems in the system.

How do i remove the heater core from a 1988 audi 90? ... my heater core blew and i was wondering if i can get to it from under the dash or if i will have to remove the entire dash to get to it?


If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
Heater Housing
  • The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core.
  • Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of car. It threfore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.
f74-01.gif The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core. Heater Core
  • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
  • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
  • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
  • Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
  • Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
  • To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps.
When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.

Only drivers side heat is blowing cool air, passanger side is working fine. are there two different heating untis for this car since it has two separate controls? could it be a sensor or a flap? flap...


No there is one heating unit that has a flap that is controlled by the passenger side vs. driver side cooler or hotter knob or setting, if it's like my Cadillac. It's called a blend door. There is only one heater core that feeds the two separate sides.

Will have to pull the dash, and inspect the vacuum lines and cables.

Leaking Heater Core


Many libraries have the Haynes or Chilton's series of auto repair manuals.
This leak sounds like it is the cut-off **** on the heater core. This is the valve controlled by the on/off switch on the dashboard.
