This is not an easy job the steering column needs to be lowered ,passenger side airbag removed, center console removed, and if you are like me i don,t like being crowded so i opt to remove front seats before doing this job for added room when laying on back trying to remove nearly impossible hidden bolts and screws behind dash shell i guess what i,m trying to say is i have done around 50 or more of these at work in a shop enviroment with 25 plus years as mechanic and it,s difficult but not impossible i have been asked how to do numerous times and tell friends look this is one of those things that you would do yourself a favor buy paying a reputable auto shop to repair this without training and right info and tools you can cost yourself some serious expensive money quickly i,m not trying to discourage just save you some heartache not knowing alot about your sitiuation this is my best advice

How do i remove a heater core on a 2001 grand cherokee


The heater core on your 2001 Jeep Cherokee is responsible for providing heat in the cab of your vehicle. Overtime or due to driving conditions, the heater core can become plugged with dust or corrosion and stop working. If it is not working properly, the heater in your Jeep will not warm the interior and could cause the windows to fog over. To avoid this, if you start seeing signs that the core is not working properly, you can remove it yourself in about 2 or 3 hours and save yourself the expense of having someone else do it.

just follow these steps:
  • 1

    Detach the negative and positive battery cables from the battery of your 2001 Jeep Cherokee with an open end wrench and crescent wrench.

  • 2

    Remove the cap from off the radiator and also from the top of the coolant overflow tank on the passenger side of the Jeep. Locate the drain valve at the base of the radiator and place a drain pan on the ground, below the drain valve.

  • 3

    Open the drain valve on the radiator with an open end wrench and allow the coolant to drain into the pan completely. When it is finished, close the drain valve and remove the drain pan.

  • 4

    Unfasten the dash pad on the top of the dashboard by using a screwdriver to undo the screws holding it in place. Check the defroster vent and remove any screws holding the vent screen in place.

  • 5

    Remove the trim panel underneath the passenger side of the dashboard with a screwdriver and set it aside. Locate the plastic box that is sitting underneath the dashboard on the passenger side.

  • 6

    Undo all the screws that are holding the plastic box in place with a screwdriver and set the box off to the side. Locate the heater core that was sitting inside the plastic box.

  • 7

    Unscrew all the screws that are holding the heater core to the firewall with clamps underneath the dashboard. Remove the clamps from the heater core.

  • 8

    Lay a piece of plastic sheeting on the passenger side floorboard to cover the carpet from any coolant remaining in the heater core. Pull the heater core away from the firewall until you see the hoses attached to the inlet and outlet pipes on the unit.

  • 9

    Remove the water hoses from the pipes on the heater core by unscrewing the hose clamps with a screwdriver and sliding the hoses off the pipes.

  • 10

    Take the old heater core out of the Jeep Cherokee and dispose of the unit. Recycle the drained coolant by taking the drain pan with the fluid to your local recycling center or automotive supply.

    So, my 2001 V8 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo is very slowly leaking coolant. I replaced the heater core in 2009 and the symptoms that the Jeep expressed then are not happening now. However, the low coolant...


    are you mixing the coolant with water if yes,you need to just put straight up anti freeze ,because water evaporates at high temperatures .. also keep resorvoir full at all times there is a sensor in the tank that when is low it makes the check coolant light come on ,,....good luck

    Heater core replacement, 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Why do I have to evacuate the freon?


    you need to evacuate the freon because in order to get the heater core out you also need to remove the evaporator for the AC. (great design huh?)

    ...i had an estimate done today to replace my


    The heater core is located behind the dashboard. The entire dashboard has to be completely removed in order to replace the heater core. The time it takes to remove and replace this dash is usually about a few hours, thus the high $500-$600 pricetag, which I believe is decent.

    I need help with heater core replacement for my 1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo


    Changing the heater core requires complete removal of the dash panel and plenum box. To do this you have to remove the steering wheel, steering column, evacuate and recharge the refrigerant system and drain the radiator. I would only consider changing the heater core if it is physically leaking into the passenger compartment. If the problem is heat transfer to the HVAC system only, the problem is more likely with the blend doors. Check heatertreater.net for pictures and diagnostic information.

    The heater is my Jeep is not blowing very warm air. It puts out mild heat at best. I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo.


    I would recommend flushing the cooling system and replacing the thermostat.....easy to do and only about $14 for a new thermostat.If that does not work then you either have a coolant leak somewhere or a bad heater core. I would also pressure test your cooling system before you flush the system to look for leaks in the system

    1. Disconnect battery ground cable, then drain cooling system.
    2. Disconnect hoses from heater core.
    3. If equipped with A/C, remove evaporator/blower housing as follows:
      1. Discharge A/C system, then disconnect hoses from expansion valve.
      2. Disconnect electrical connector and vent tube from blower motor.
      3. Remove console, if equipped.
      4. Remove lower instrument panel attaching screws, then the lower panel.
      5. Disconnect electrical connections from A/C relay, blower motor resistors and A/C thermostat.
      6. Disconnect vacuum hose from vacuum motor.
      7. Cut evaporator/blower housing to heater core housing retaining strap, then disconnect heater control cable.
      8. Pry retaining clip from rear of blower housing flange, then remove the three retaining screws.
      9. Working from engine compartment, remove evaporator/blower housing attaching nuts, then the evaporator drain tube, Figure 1.
      10. Remove right kick panel, then the instrument panel support bolt.
      11. Pull right side of dash outward, then rotate housing downward and towards rear of vehicle until studs clear dash panel. Remove housing from vehicle.
    4. Remove heater core to housing retaining screws, then the heater core, Figure 2.
    5. Reverse procedure to install.

    Figure 2

    Personally, I'd pressure test the cooling system then look at the heater core to see if it leaks. It may just be a loose clamp or leaky hose.

    I hope help you; good luck (remember rated this).
