SOURCE: First, thanks for your assistance.

it is quite easy to replace the heater core . all you need to do is open the glove compartment and pop-off the hydraulic hinge and pull the glove compartment all the way down and you take off four bolts on the plastic cover and it comes right out.

How to reconnect the heater hose from the motor side of the firewall on a 1997 ford thunderbird 4.6 v8


Provided the hose bib for the heater hose is still sticking out of the firewall the hose slips over the bib and then a hose clamp is tightened over the hose. But it's possible that the bib is broken off and then heater core is going to need to be changed

      Heater core


      email me at fordtech2005@gmail.com and I will be happy to email you pictures on how to do it. the flat rate labor time to do this repair is 7.5 hours which basically means that the whole dash must come out, also you will need to disconnect your a/c system to remove heater core.
