I would like to help you but there are too many things to list to get the heater plenum out. This is one of the engineering marvels that GM invented to ******** everyone who tries this. The best thing you can do is go to a library to see if they have a book you could check out.

The only thing you can do then is pay a professional or attempt this anyway.

I warn you this is NOT AN EASY JOB, not even for someone who works on these truck every day!

2002 Ford Ranger Extended Cab Heater Core Replacement


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.

How long does it take to replace the heater core


This depends on how hard it is to get to your particular vehicle style core. Some vehicles require to rip out the entire dash, others may be exposed. For an exposed heater core, I've done it in about 30 minutes to an hour...for the dash destruction add in about another hour or 2.

You will need to pull the dash and a bunch of other components in order to access the heater core. Getting ready to do the same repair and really not looking forward to it.

Replacment of heater core on 01 chevy S-10


Have replaced my heater core in my 2001 regular cab 4wd in december 2009. Had to pull the complete dash including the complete metal dash behind the dash that you see. Also had to remove the right passenger side inner fender well to acess the remaining two bolts that hold the heater core cover to the firewall. Its an insane job to do but the repair shop books call for 9 1/2 hrs to do the job. I'm not an expert but this is what it takes.

I need to replace my heater core in a 1997 ford f150 extended cab


you have to go in under the dash on the passenger side so there will be vents and stuff you have to remove. under the hood are two hoses that run to it which you also have to disconnect as these go to the heater core.
