How to replace heater core

Hi Quinton, I'm glad to help!

Quinton, this is a job that's very hard if you've never repaired cars before. The entire dash must be removed to gain access to the heater box that must also be removed to change out the core. You can google: how to replace heater core on 96 Lincoln town car. This will give you video's on how its done and give you an idea of the work involved. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Quinton.

How do i change the heater core?

Some heater cores are quite complex in removing. They are sometimes buried behind the dash board. Often other parts of the dash will also have to come out (Glove compartment) to reach it. You have to locate and remove the heater box under the dash (usually on the passenger side) after disconnecting the heater hoses under the hood by the firewall. The heater box will have a wire harness and/or cables connected to it that will have to be disconnected before the box will drop out. Once the heater box is out...remove the cover and heater core and reinstall in the reverse order that it was removed.

Have ford f150 1996 wont switch to heat from cold replaced switch already

96' or 97' it makes a big difference. 96' models are very simple if you have a basic understanding of automotive work and some basic tools. remove the glove box, the heater core is located behind a panel just inside and below the glove box hole. first remove the plastic panel but not the heater core, to the left of the heater core inside the box is the blend door that separates the heater and A/C cores. this door is often obstructed by pens, pencils, or plastic junk that have fallen down into the defrost vents on top of the dash and landed in the box. something like this will stop the blend door from being able to close the A/C core off from the vents allowing cold air in. if you have big hands like mine you may need a woman or teenager to reach into the box and check for debris but you can see the door open and close when you turn the switch so you know where to check. if you have a 97' model the blend door actuator is electric and usually not accessible without removing the dash and heater/A/C box from the firewall. good luck

Drain the coolant. Remove the dashboard first, then a bunch of air ducts, then the heater core cover. Remove the heater hoses in the rear of the motor, and finally the heater core.
