there should be an access panel under the glove box for this year model. if the access panel is not there then you have to remove the dash to get the heater core out. GM made the switch with the access panel to no panel somewhere close to this time depending on the build date of the truck.

How to replace heater core in dash

First of all you need a book. Only $20 at a parts store and always useful. Second you will have to empty most or all of the coolant from your system, take off the dash to access the heater core, then remove it like the book demonstrates. Install like the book shows and replace dash and refill coolant. Burp the system too if you need to. Good luck!

I need to know how to change a heater core in a 81 monte carlo. don't have a book to go by

A good place to find such information is at
You can select your make and model of vehicle, go to the "how to" section and in many cases it will give you the instructions for replacing various parts and it is free. is another resource that you will pay less than $30 a year for your first vehicle, it is an on-line service manual web site, very good.
Below is the procedure for replacing your heater from the Auto Zone site.
Good luck, let me know.

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.

Heater core removal in 92 ford taurus

You'll have to remove the dash in layers. The heater box is the last thing you actually get to. It's not a fun job. It's a very time consuming job. I believe "book" time on that job is around 8 hours. Even guys like me that have done these before take longer that what "book" times is.
