Question about Ford F-150

2 Answers

I changed my heater core in a 97 f150. I had to take the whole dash out. I now need to put it back together and am trying to find a diagram of how all the parts of the dash go back together and where they belong. I just need a picture diagram of it.

U need the factory repair manual and that is not avail on this site, Haynes or Chilton will not have the diagrams, I always advise DIYers that they may get it apart but not back together without the manual. Here is a link to ebay for a used manual at a fraction of the price of the new ones.

CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain and recycle the engine coolant.
  3. Disconnect the coolant hoses at the heater core tubes.

Hope you can read that? Check the fuses for those relays, the two on the right. Not only check the fuses, use a test lite to check for voltage on the fuse circuit. Check the four fuses on the left, also, some are hot all the time, some go hot with the key on.
The top two wires at relay is the load side. The bottom two wires are on the control side of relay. The control side needs voltage and ground. Your gem module controls ground. Sometimes when battery voltage is lost, some modules may need to be reprogrammed? I don't have that info. In my opinion, clicking is either intermittent voltage or ground. Right now I'm thinking ground, controlled by the gem model. I could be wrong?

I replaced heater core on 97 ford f150 need map on how everthing goes back together


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.
Heater Housing
  • The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core.
  • 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.
f74-01.gif The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core. Heater Core
  • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
  • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
  • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
  • Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
  • Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
  • To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps.
When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.

97 f150 noticed it leaking from a little tube on


if it is just the rubber hose going in, the rubber hose can be replaced. if the aluminum tube coming out of the firewall is leaking, it it part of the heater core, and the whole core will need to be replaced. good luck!
