Need to replace heater core


Heater Core REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

1978 and Later Without A/C
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and drain the cooling system. CAUTION
    When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  2. Disconnect and plug the heater hoses from the core tubes.
  3. Disengage the electrical connectors from the module case.
  4. Unbolt and remove the module's front cover and lift out the core. To install:
  5. Install the core and apply sealant to the module cover, then install the cover and secure.
  6. Engage the electrical connectors to the module case.
  7. Remove the plugs, then connect the heater hoses to the core tubes.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable, then refill the engine cooling system and check for leaks.
1967 and Later With A/C
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable, then drain the engine cooling system to a level below heater core. CAUTION
    When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  2. Disconnect and plug the heater hoses at the core tubes. Plugging the hoses will help prevent excessive coolant leakage.
  3. Remove the module's rubber seal and screen. If necessary, disconnect the washer nozzle from the cowl.
  4. If necessary, remove the right windshield wiper arm.
  5. As applicable, remove or disengage, the diagnostic connector, high blower relay, thermostatic switch, ground strap and/or electrical connectors from the heater core module cover.
  6. Loosen the retainers and remove the module's top cover. The cover is sealed to the module and this seal must be broken before the cover can be removed. Be absolutely sure that all cover fasteners are removed before attempting to break the seal or cover damage will result. Take your time and be careful not to force and crack or otherwise damage the cover. NOTE: On many late model vehicles, cover interference with the vehicle's bulkhead will may removal difficult. On these vehicles it will be necessary to loosen the windshield's chromed lower trim plate for the necessary clearance.
  7. With the top cover removed, loosen or unclip the core retainer, then carefully lift the core from the vehicle. To install:
  8. Thoroughly clean the mating surfaces of the cover and the module of all old sealer.
  9. Install the heater core to the module and secure the retaining bracket.
  10. Apply a coating of sealant to the cover, then install the cover and tighten the fasteners. If the windshield trim plate was loosened for clearance, reposition and secure it.
  11. Engage the electrical connectors and components to the module cover, as applicable.
  12. If removed, install the right wiper arm.
  13. Install the module screen and rubber seal. If removed, install the washer nozzle to the cowl.
  14. Remove the plugs and reconnect the heater hoses to the core tubes.
  15. Connect the negative battery cable, then properly refill the engine cooling system and check for leaks. Fig. 3: Loosen the clamps, then disconnect the hoses from the heater core tubes 85946010.jpg Fig. 4: Remove the rubber seal from the module top cover 85946011.jpg Fig. 5: Loosen and remove the module cowl screen retainers 85946012.jpg Fig. 6: Make sure all of the screen retainers are removed, some like this one, are on the side of the screen 85946013.jpg Fig. 7: If necessary, remove the retainer and reposition the washer nozzle 85946014.jpg Fig. 8: Some retaining bolts may be partially hidden, check under the wiper arm 85946015.jpg Fig. 9: With all of the fasteners removed, carefully lift the screen from the top of the module 85946016.jpg Fig. 10: Disengage all electrical wiring and components from the top of the module 85946017.jpg Fig. 11: Loosen and remove the module top cover retaining bolts 85946018.jpg Fig. 12: As with the cowl screen, the top cover bolts may be difficult to find 85946019.jpg Fig. 13: If the windshield's chrome trimplate interferes with cover removal, it will have to be loosened or removed for additional clearance 85946020.jpg Fig. 14: Remove the bolt and bracket from the passenger side of the trim plate 85946021.jpg Fig. 15: With the bolt and bracket removed, the trim plate support may be removed for clearance 85946022.jpg Fig. 16: Once all of the bolts are removed, break the seal by lifting the top cover from the module 85946023.jpg Fig. 17: Remove the core retaining bracket; in this case by loosening the retaining bolt 85946024.jpg Fig. 18: Lift the heater core from the module, but remember it still may contain a fair amount of coolant 85946025.jpg prev.gif next.gif

Bad alternator


Disconnect the negative clamp on the battery. Remove the bolt on the adjustment arm (the one with the slot) of the alternator. Loosen the pivot bolt at the bottom of the Alt. Swing the alt inward to loosen the belt. Take the belt of the pulley. Take off the wires noting where they attach. Remove the pivot bolt. You should be able to take the alt off now. Reverse the sequence but when adjusting the belt tension pry the side of the alternator with a bar so the belt can only be deflected about three quarters of an inch. Tighten the adjustment bolt. Don't over tighten the belt. It'll prematurely wear your bearings. Don't under tighten. It'll squeal.
