Question about 2000 GMC Sonoma Extended Cab
Replacing heater core in 2000 GMC sonoma. Dash is removed but having troubles getting through ventilation module to core.
If the dash is removed you've saved about 9 10ths of the job endurance. Look around, what you believe to be, the perimeter of the heater box. I cannot, and no one else can, tell you exactly where the bolts and nuts that mount the heater box are. Therefore you must viually sixe the box and check outide in the engine compartment and inside under the dash for the mounting bolts.You'll want to start by removing the heater hoses. Then starting at the passenger side engine compartment look for a group of 10mm or 7/16ths nuts retaining the housing and remove them. Do the same inside. The housing is usually held together with screws or clips, it changes year to year. Keep a log or pix of the wires and cables and hoses(vacuum) that are connected to the housing for reassembly. You'll need to "roll" the box out from under the dash depending on how much of the dash has been removed. The core is easy to spot for is has two hoses sticking out, and, is encircled with clips or screws . Also make sure you remove the bracket around the two entry hoses if it has one. Thank you, Dana

Usually the whole hvac box has to come out of the vehicle to replace the heater core. Once the box is out it can be opened and the heater core removed. Be careful with all the vent doors and actuators, make note of how everything came apart. The last thing you want to do is have to remove the dash and box because something wasn't on just right. Good luck.
