There is some wire shorted to ground during the dash work due to some pinched points. Need to revisit the re-installation work.

How do I get to the blower motor for a 1995 dodge Dakota to replace it ?


Bad design on the 1995 Dodge Dakota. The dash has to be removed to replace the blower motor. May want to replace the heater core while the dash is out to keep from having to remove it later for a leaking heater core.

HEATER CORE REPLACEMENT


I have very little heat in my '97 Dakota, but I did last year too. I haven't backwashed my heater core this year, which worked great last year and got me through the entire winter season. If you haven't done that to see if it will help, I would defenitely do it. It takes like 15 minutes total time to do it. This is far easier than pulling the dash out and replacing the heater core. Hope that would help, if not sorry. Changing the heater core is one problem I don't even want to ask my mechanic to tackle and he is a very great friend of mine.

Can I replace a heater core in a 2000 dodge dakota without taking the entire box out? please post a pic or vid.


no not on this one. The dash will need to be remover or pulled back about a foot. Then you will need to disconnect the heater and a/c hoses going into the firewall. Remove the box and split in half. one side will hold your heater core and the other is the evaporator.
