Question about 1999 Toyota Camry Solara
Absolutely. the clean up is needed to remove possible mold. this is needed also to prevent further odor in the future as well. heater core replacement procedures will usually run 3 to 5 hours at the most, depending on the clean up needed. The removal of the dash or, lower instrument panel, is the proper way to initiate this replacement. it will provide the needed Clarence so that you will have enough room. to extract the core. it provide great visibility so that you may see all the connections clearly.
The heater core housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core.
Here is the proper removal procedure.
1 Disconnect the negative battery cable. Wait at least 90 seconds to proceed work due to the SRS system.
2 Drain the engine coolant.
3 Detach the water hoses from the A/C unit.
4 Remove the No.1 lower instrument panel.
5 Remove the Left lower instrument panel.
6 Remove the three (3) claws and remove the plastic heater protector.
7 Loosen and remove the three (3) screws and the plate.
8 Detach the two (2) heater core pipes by removing the two (2) screws and two (2) clamps.
9 Remove the heater core.
NOTE( As stated above, it will usually take 3 to 5 hours to complete the process. that 8 to 10 hour labor charge seems excessive. i would check around for a lower labor time just to be safe. it shouldn't take 8 to 10 hours to do this job at all. I think that 8 to 10 hour quote is a bit inflated in my estimation).
