Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
There are 2 hoses inlet/outlet into the heater core from the engine side at the firewall, and the hose on the right side broke off with the male plastic nozzle type fitting still in the hose. Can I replace that male nozzle fitting, I think it may be an Inlet or Outlet Nozzle Adapter? Do I need any special tools. I really appreciate any help or suggestions. Thank you, Roxanne Roxanne, How did u resolve the issue, as I have run into the same problem? Thanx.
Well you may need to replace the entire heater core if the remaining inlet/outlet nipple is not long enough. common problem many people have

if repairable (not really sure of this) heater core will have to be removed in order to get the remainder of the plastic extension off the nipple on the core. The replacement part would need to be heated in order to shrink it back in place. This may be a factory assembly. I'm sure someone could make a fitting extension using some type of heat shrink arrangement the major problem is that if you try to clamp anything on there the clamp will be in the way when assembling it in the heater box.
bottom line is that either way it needs to come out...check with dealer or a good radiator shop to see what they have or recommend as a repair.
