The heater is located under the dash board to the right and down from the radio. To remove and replace it you will have to remove the dash board down to the fire wall. Also, you will have to disconnect two hoses that connect up to it from the engine compartment. These are located in the back of the engine and down on the firewall about midway. Once you remove the dash board and locate the heater core you will be able to see the location of these two hoses. Removing the heater core is time consuming but it will save you about 700 dollars.

    Whats the easiest way to R&R a Heater core on a 1997 Kia Sportage? Have coolant leaking into passenger floor pan.


    The EASY way, thought not necessarily pretty, but it works... get a rotary cutting tool (ie Dremel) and cut the rectangular cover for the heater core under the dash... one the two heater lines are disconnected, the core should slide right out.... put the new core in, then glue the cut away plastic with RTV silicone seal, re-attach the two hoses, and you're good to go.... otherwise, its a nightmare of pulling out nearly the entire dash, disconnecting the A/C lines, etc. not something I'd want to undertake... so this EASY solution will get the job done, without costing you an arm and a leg at the mechanic.
