It is under the dash in the middle of everything. You have to fully tear down the dash. allow at least 8 hours and also get a camera and take a lot of pictures. You can put parts in zip-lock bags and lable as you go.

Here is an exploded view of the heating/air conditioning blower box. This contraption is located on the passengerside under the dash. I've changed heater cores on other cars but never worked on a caravan so not sure how difficult it'll be. You may need to remove a few cover panels to access this and the heater core #22 is located behind the distribution box #6 containing parts 7-18 and hopefully comes off as a unit. I wouldn't want to put it back together just looking at the pic. You may just need to remove the heater tube cover #4 to access the connections and slide out the core.....NAH couldn't be that simple!!! Hope this was of some help. Good luck.

Once you pull the dash out and get the old core out. If you have a copper one take a tubing cutter and cut the tubes in half that go through the firewall.Grt yourself two half inch copper couplers.Run the two pieces through the fire wall then drop the core in place connect then solder. If aluminum similar cut then flare both ends then connect with rubber heating hose and clamps and away you go. Then you don't have to disconnect air conditioning.

It's a big job. Drain the coolant down, recover the freon in the ac system and disconnect the lines and heater hoses. Lower the steering column, remove the instrument panel assembly, remove the heater housing. Split the case halves on the housing and there you are. Usually around 500 to 700 dollars at a dealership.

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.
