Most of the time you can access it from behind the glove compartment

Hello Frank Trujillo,

Right directly behind the two heater tubes in the FIRE-WALL of your truck
(follow the hoses).

My previous experience... not your model...
was fairly easy access

Te DASH top pad was removable... which made a
rough looking job pretty easy.

Hope this helps.

Look at the picture of your core (below).

SOURCE: heater core replacement

It's one of the easiest cores to replace that I have encountered. Disconnect heater hoses at firewall. Probably doesn't matter about hose placement, but I always mark them just in case. To remove the fiber cover under dash, take a flat blade screwdriver and pry out the center pin of the expansion clips that hold it in place. There are four 5/16 head screws that hold the bottom/drain tray cover. Core will pull through the firewall and then down. You may have to silicone/glue or replace the foam seal strips on the new core. Before you install the core, check the distance between the inlet and outlet tubes to ensure they match the openings in the firewall. This saves time. It helps if you have someone on the outside to guide you when stabbing the tubes through the firewall. Replace bottom cover. You may have to hold one of the tubes when reinstalling the first hose to the core. Replace any lost coolant and check for leaks prior to reinstalling the fiber cover. If the cover seal is in good condition, any leak should drain through the firewall, otherwise it may leak inside cab. .

SOURCE: replacing a heater core in a 2004 ford freestar

you must remove the entire dash assembly, this job requires a factory service manual or u will likely never get it apart without breaking it.

Where would start to repair heater, blowing cool air only. 2004 ford ranger edge


Check that the cooling system is fully serviced (near full mark in coolant reservoir). With engine warmed up, feel (carefully) both heater hoses where they go into the firewall. If both are hot, there is water circulating through the heater core - possibly problem with blend door actuator. If only one hose, or neither hose is hot, you may have a blockage in the heater core. This usually means replacing the heater core, but you may be able to flush it. See this YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9SIafVsqyc

Flush heater core on 2009 ford ranger


if your just doing the heater core you can clamp off the heater hoses to the core, disconnect them from the heater core and run water through it both ways. if its real bad connect spare hoses to the heater core spigots and pour CLR into the core until it is full(coming out other hose) block off hose so the core is filled and let sit. then flush out again until water runs clear. if this won`t clear it then it will have to be replaced.

Not an easy job. Drop the steering column and remove the dash first. Then remove the plenum. Core is between the plenum and fire wall. Get a manual. Your saving hundreds doing it your self. 30 dollars for a manual is worth it.
