Re: lower right hand dash removal 99 expedition
On the top of your dash you should have an access panel, inside that opening there are three screws that are put in (direction) from front to back, two are relatively easy to get to and see, the third is above the passenger side a/c vent outlet. Also there are two on each end of the dash, that you have to remove the door weather stripping to reach, hope this helps, let me know

WOW, sorry it has taken so long for someone to see and respond to your question. You've probably figured it out on your own by now, but if not, here is your answer. The heater core in your Caprice is located behind the glove box. To gain access, you have to remove the lower right dash insulator panel (below the glove box) and than the glove box. Remove any vaccuum lines ( mark their locations.) Then remove the lower instrument panel brace and then the heater core cover. Remove the heater core clamp bolt and clamp. Disconnect the heater hoses from the heater core on the left hand side of the engine compartment( looking at the engine from the front of the car.) Then remove the heater core.
Heater core is under the dash, the dash will have to be remove to replace the heater core, you will also need to have the a/c system recover, evac, and recharge if the system has freon, when this repair is done, this is about a 10 hrs. job.
all bolts are always located behind the likes of ur radio, glove box, behind speedo/rev counter, up underneath by the pedal box and stuff like that. dashboards dont drop easily and go back in even worse.
The heater core is contained within the heater/air assembly. The assembly is divided by the firewall. Now if only the heater core is being removed there is no need to evacuate the refrigerant from from the air conditioning system or remove the blower motor/evaporator housing. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Drain the cooling system. Disconnet the heater hoses at the firewall. Remove the glove box and the sound insulator panel below the right side of the dash. ( To remove he glove box there should be two screws underneath , you simply unscrew them and detach the glove box from the instrument panel), and of course instsallation is reverse . Disconnect the the rod from the programmer to the blend air door by squeezing the plastic connector and pulling it out of the arm. Disconnect the vaccuum and electrical connectors from the programmer just to the right of the heater core housing Remove the two heater core cover mounting screws and pull the heater core cover (with programmer still attached) away from the heater housing Remove the two core mounting screws and carefully lower the heater/air condition assembly from under the dash. Caution : Have some old rags handy to protect the carpet from any spills of coolant . Installation is the reverse of removal. Note: Make sure to transfer any weather stripping/sealing material from the old core or cover to the new one.
pretty easy to do. go to passenger side of dash and remove glove box for working room. there is a lower panel below the dash that needs to be removed. disconnect the heater hoses under hood. once panel under dash is removed you will see the heater box remove the 6-8 bolts around the very base of it, it will able to be lowered down and you will see the heater core it has a couple of brackets that hold it in place remove these. put new one in its place and put back together.
It is in the dash behind the glove box. You need to remove the lower dash bolts and pull the dash forward enough to remove the heater core cover. You need to remove the panel in the back of the glove box to access some of the bolts.
