Where is the heater core located at on the 93 caprice ,is it behind the glove box ,or do I have to remove the whole dash


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.

We need to replace the fan motor on a 1997 cavalier- what is the easiest way?


If it is the heater fan motor, I believe on that you have to actually remove the dash to gain access. Remove the speaker grill on top and there are a few torx screws under that. Remove the side access panels, when you open the car doors you will a panel on each side, they are just held in there by pressure and small nubs on the panels, you will find more torx screws. In the glove box on the top towards the front you will find a few more torx screws, also in that area there are two 10 mm bolts that are somewhat hidden but accessible. After all the bolts and screws are removed you can pull the dash cover off, becareful because on the passenger side, the airbag has a paper type cover on it, you don't want to damage that. From there you should be able to gain access to the heater blower on the passenger side of the vehicle. Good luck.

How do I remove the headlamp unit on a Jaguar S type 2001 I can only see two nuts one top centre and one to the left and three or four inches lower slightly to the right of the main beam looking from the...


Front bumper requires removal to gain acsess to the lower 10mm bolts. Bumper comes off by removing the 2 10mm bolts on the top of the bumper then unscrew the 2 T30 screws in the front wheel arch liner (bumper side) and then you will be able to see a 10mm bolt reversed into a bracket at the top of the bumper from a inside veiw, remove and repeat for the other side. Then its 3 10mm bolts that secure the front under tray (if yours has one). Then there will be another 10mm bolt to the wing side of the headlamp from a above veiw. Bumper should then just pull off and watch for the connector for the fog lamp harness.

Just the 2 lower headlamp bolts andit should pull from its housing

My horn stopped working. I checked the fuse, it


The horn is generally located underneath the most front lower vehicle undercarriage either on the right or left side towards the wheel well splash guard area, bolted to the forward engine frame chassis. This is not seen from under the hood look usually. You must lay down on your back with a flashlight and look up. Should you find it, examine it to see if it is rusty. If so, replace it. If not, pull each connector out to examine for corroided connectors. If that is present, you should push and pull the connector on and off several times and then put some di-electric grease in the plug and plug them in. Tom H.

How do i change out the headlights. Remove the covers as well.


Depending on the year you have to remove the grille to gain access to the mounting bolts under the grille, as well as the lower air vents in the lower valence to gain access to those mounting bolts. Remove the screws from the fender well liner to the bumper and pull the front bumper off to gain access to the lower mounting bolts for the headlight assembly.

Front fender removal


Hiya... here's the details of fender removal/installation:
the left-side (same for right-side) fender has 6 bolts attached to the "sidebody" frame.
The bolt location:
3 are on the top fender-easy to find when hood is open,
1 is hidden at the rear of top inner fender-just open the left-front door wide to find it (early equinoxes had foam-like noise absorber material in it, just remove it from underneath fender after the wheelwell liner is removed),
1 bolt is hidden at bottom of front fender area at headlight/bumper area-you need to remove plastic wheelwell liner to gain access,
1 bolt is hidden at bottom of rear fender area where the black plastic rocker panel meets below the fender...
THIS area is probably the most difficult task to do since it requires you to remove a small bolt found on the front of rocker panel behind the front-left wheel then use a flat screwdriver or clip removal tool to pry open the black plastic **clip's 'dime-sized' head prior to pull out the clip's body (it has 8 clips underneath the chassis) then use your hands to grasp the rocker panel underneath, pull it down-toward you...this should do it....USE CARE during rocker panel and clip removal/installation so you don't break the clips!
It also has yellow plastic clips inside the rocker panel (used as a guide during installation into rocker sill holes-use caution not to break it)
**note: early equinoxes had rocker panel clips that you can actually pull it out from the hole, while later equinoxes has 'built-in' clips inside rocker panels that you don't see the clip heads below it due to engineering part design change**
Be sure to exercise care when handing this task!
