If they are sealed bearings, you will need a press to get them out. If they are bolt in, just remove the brake pads/rotors, then the axle nut, then the bolts holding the wheel bearing in. Install in reverse order.

SOURCE: heater core

No, you don't have to pull the whole dash board but you have to pull a few panels....here is the steps on how to get to it and remove and replace it:

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system and disconnect the heater hoses from the heater core tubes. Plug the hoses and the heater core tubes to prevent coolant leakage.

CAUTION NEVER open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.


  1. Remove the 3 nuts located below the windshield wiper motor attaching the left end of the plenum to the dash panel. Remove the 1 nut retaining the upper left corner of the evaporator case to the dash panel.

  2. Remove the 3 glove compartment hinge screws, disconnect the check arms and remove the glove compartment.
  3. Loosen the right door sill plate and remove the right side cowl trim panel.
  4. Remove the bolt attaching the lower right end of the instrument panel to the side cowl.
  5. Remove the instrument panel pad as follows:
    • Remove the 2 screws attaching the pad to the instrument panel at each defroster opening. Be careful not to drop the screws into the defroster openings.
    • Remove the one screw attaching each outboard end of the pad to the instrument panel.
    • On Crown Victoria, remove one pad attaching screw near the upper right corner of the glove compartment door.
    • Remove the 5 screws attaching the lower edge of the pad to the instrument panel. Pull the instrument panel pad rearward and remove it from the vehicle.
  6. On 1990-98 vehicles:
  7. Remove all instrument panel mounting screws and pull the instrument panel back as far as it will go without disconnecting any wiring harnesses.
  8. Make sure the nuts attaching the instrument panel braces to the dash panel are removed.
  9. Loosen the right door sill plate and remove the right side cowl trim panel.
  10. If equipped with manual air conditioning, disengage the temperature control cable housing from the bracket on top of the plenum. Disconnect the cable from the temperature blend door crank arm.
  11. If equipped with Automatic Temperature Control (ATC), proceed as follows:
  12. On 1989 vehicles, disconnect the temperature control cable from the ATC sensor.
  13. Detach the vacuum harness line connector from the ATC sensor harness and detach the electrical connector from the ATC servo connector.
  14. On 1990-98 vehicles, remove the cross body brace and disconnect the wiring harness from the temperature blend door actuator. Detach the ATC sensor tube from the evaporator case connector.

Heater core removal—1990-98 vehicles

  1. Carefully move the plenum rearward to allow the heater core tubes and the stud at the top of the plenum to clear the holes in the dash panel. Remove the plenum from the vehicle by rotating the top of the plenum forward, down and out from under the instrument panel. Carefully pull the lower edge of the instrument panel rearward, as necessary, while rolling the plenum from behind the instrument panel.
  2. On 1989 vehicles with ATC, remove the ATC servo from the plenum.
  3. Remove the 4 retaining screws from the heater core cover and remove the cover from the plenum assembly.
  4. Pull the heater core and seal assembly from the plenum assembly.
To install:

  2. On 1989 vehicles with ATC, install the ATC servo on the plenum.
  3. Route the vacuum supply hose through the dash panel and seat the grommet in the opening.
  4. Position the plenum under the instrument panel with the register duct opening up and the heater core tubes down. Rotate the plenum up behind the instrument panel and position the plenum to the dash panel. Insert the heater core tubes and mounting studs through their respective holes in the dash panel and the evaporator case.
  5. Install the 3 nuts on the studs along the lower flange and one on the upper flange of the plenum. Install the 3 nuts below the windshield wiper motor to attach the left end of the plenum to the dash panel and the one nut to retain the upper left corner of the evaporator case to the dash panel.
  6. Position the floor air distribution duct on the plenum. Install the 2 screws and plastic push fastener. If removed, position the panel door vacuum motor to the mounting bracket and install the 2 attaching screws.
  7. Connect the white vacuum hose to the outside-recirculating door vacuum motor. Attach the vacuum jumper harness to the plenum harness at the multiple vacuum connector near the floor air distribution duct. Install the floor duct.
  8. If equipped with manual air conditioning, connect the temperature control cable housing to the bracket on top of the plenum and connect the temperature control cable to the temperature blend door crank arm. Adjust the temperature cable.
  9. If equipped with ATC, proceed as follows:
    1. On 1989 vehicles, connect the temperature control cable to the ATC sensor and adjust the cable. Route and attach the vacuum harness connector to the ATC sensor and attach the electrical connector to the ATC servo connector. Do not block the sensor aspirator exhaust port with the excess vacuum harness. Install the ATC sensor tube between the sensor and the evaporator connector.

2005 dodge ram heater does not get hot, just barely warm. When I increase blower speed, it gets colder. Coolant level is full, air flow is good, used to get hot but not anymore. Any ideas where my problem...


First check your radiator cap to make sure theres no pressure escaping. The cooling system needs pressure to push the hot water to the heater core. You also need to look at your heater core itself. With the engine running touch the lines coming in to the heater core through the firewall. If they're both hot you may need to replace the core, if only one is hot you've got a blockage in the cooling system preventing the flow to the heater core.

My 2005 ford escape seems to have a heat issue. When the heat is turned on at it's hottest, it's hot, however when tuned down to the midway point, it cools down quite a bit, what may be the issue ?


I assume the vent door is loose or broken,and when it is set,maybe half way on the dial,the door moves to far closed.It is either that,or the control is bad.

1994 F150 2wd 300straight six 5 speed manual changed thermostat and heater core still blowing cold air


sounds like a vaccum leak in the system. start with the control panel by removing from dash and work your way back toward motor. Lines tend to become brittle and break easily.

Just changed the thermostat in my 2005 ford sport track.. but heater still blows cold...gages arent showing that is over heating and can i still drive??


The usual problem after changing a thermostat, is an air lock. Bleed the air out by loosening the return hose from the core and carefully move the hose a little to allow the air to escape

2005 Escape. Warm air comes through vent while selector is on cold. This is while on regular air flow selection.


Check to see if the temperature door is moving. When set on max the coolant is shut off to the heater core aloowing max cooling.
