Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am
Need to take it to a shop because you will need to remove some of the dash
Posted on Nov 16, 2009
Removed the center console to get to the panel that holds the heater core. the heater core is in the center of the car under
the radio. There are 7 screws holding the cover on. Once you remove the
7 screws, there are two straps that hold the core in the heater box (2 screws per strap. Some cars are easier to get the heater
hoses from underneath after jacking up the car, some you can get to
from up top under the hood behind the engine. It's not a 15 minute job,
but not difficult at all. I usually suggest pulling out the passenger
side seat to give a comfy place to lay while doing it. the seat comes
out with only four bolts, and you won't have to contort your self to
get the heater core out. Your low coolant light is due to air trapped in
the system. Anytime you open the cooling system on a 3.1, you have to
bleed the air out using the bleed valves on the t-stat housing and
transfer tube (some only have one on the t-stat housing. If you have a 5 speed, your going to remove the shifter
knob and just yank on the plastic that had the boot. (it only has snaps
that hold it on) Then there are 2 bolt holes in the armrest
compartment. and 4 more which are under the boot and plastic. Very easy
to take off and put on.
Good luck, and keep me posted.
