SOURCE: heater core replacement

It's one of the easiest cores to replace that I have encountered. Disconnect heater hoses at firewall. Probably doesn't matter about hose placement, but I always mark them just in case. To remove the fiber cover under dash, take a flat blade screwdriver and pry out the center pin of the expansion clips that hold it in place. There are four 5/16 head screws that hold the bottom/drain tray cover. Core will pull through the firewall and then down. You may have to silicone/glue or replace the foam seal strips on the new core. Before you install the core, check the distance between the inlet and outlet tubes to ensure they match the openings in the firewall. This saves time. It helps if you have someone on the outside to guide you when stabbing the tubes through the firewall. Replace bottom cover. You may have to hold one of the tubes when reinstalling the first hose to the core. Replace any lost coolant and check for leaks prior to reinstalling the fiber cover. If the cover seal is in good condition, any leak should drain through the firewall, otherwise it may leak inside cab. .

SOURCE: heater core 2001 ford tauras

These are on of the hardest heater cores in the industry to replace. A typical garage will get between $800.00 and $1200.00 to replace, the dealer will get $1600.00 because you have to completely remove the steering column the dash, discharge the A/C system reomve the heater box, split it and replace the core. The job is so labor intensive you would be crazy not to replace the A/C evaporator at the same time. This is not a job for an amature or ever a class "B" tech. leave this one to the Pro's.

How do I change my heater core in my 1996 ford ranger


The heater core is located in the heater box, under the passenger side of the dash. Most FORD heater boxes are snap-clipped together, and if you remove the rear panel from the heater box, you will see the heater core...it looks like a smaller radiator...twist the heater hose off of the heater core (x2) from the engine side and gently remove the heater core from under the dash. When replacing the new heater core, be very careful re-installing new hoses to the core...it is a fragile thin metal that can leak almost instantly if tweaked too roughly...replace all parts in reverse order of removal.

Heat will not shut off in my 79 Camaro the heat controls are off and I disconnected the blower motor and heat still comes out of the dash all the time


If it does it when you are moving but not parked, it may be the flow-thru vent system and a problem with the heater core. Air flows into the passenger compartment when the car is moving, and the blend door that shuts off air flowing thru the heater core may not be closed.

If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.

  • Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of car. It threfore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.

  • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
  • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
