RKmastertech is incorrect. That plastic fitting is seperate from the aluminum heater core and can be removed by means of a special quick disconnect tool, like OTC 6046. Rock auto has the fitting for $5 plus shipping, just for a reference.

Witch hose's do u connect together on 05dodge caravan to bypass heater core?


You can find the supply and return lines penetrating the firewall on the passenger side of the engine compartment. Disconnect both lines from the firewall and connect the ends using a male/male barbed connector and two hose clamps.

How to by pass heater core in a 2001 chysler 300m


Sammy-
Where do you live, Death Valley?
I KNOW it gets cold even there!!
Anyway, it is a fairly straight forward fix, although you might be a contortionist to get at the hoses. They are RIGHT in back, in the center of the firewall. I did this on my 96 Sebring and had plenty of cuts and bruises to remember it by.
The EASY way though, and it takes more time, is to remove the rear valance that covers the wiper motors.
1. with the hood closed, remove the wiper assys.
2. Open the hood, and with a male Torx socket, remove the louvered beauty cover (black). BAG all bolts and make the bags ALWAYS.
3. remove the steel valance with four bolts on the left, and four on the right. AND remove the single bolt with a large fender washer from the driver's side. Study them and you'll quickly see what I see.
4. The two core hoses are almost dead center of the firewall.
5. Do your thing with the hoses (I take it the core leaks and you're broke like me, so you loop out the hoses)
6. Install in reverse of disassy.
7. GO!

Heater core inlet pipe plastic broke


if the heater core inlet pipe broke you may need to replace the unit depending on how far it broke ...to help get the hose off a bent awl or sometimes a small screwdriver and run it around the inside of the hose to help loosen it it otherwise if your replacing the hose as well a razor knife you can cut a **** in it to open it up as well

99 Chevy Z71 heater core inlet hose male fitting broke


This is an easy $7.00 fix. Go to your local auto parts store and get a GM Heater Hose Fitting. I went to NAPA, part #730-5631. Cut of the old fiting with a hack saw blade, being careful not to damage the pipe from the heater core, put the new one on. Total time takes less than 10 minutes, make sure you fill your coolant resevoir.
