Hi there,

Well the heater core is located under the dash on the passenger side, usually cased in a plastic housing.You may have to remove the glove box in order to have access to. And when you get to the point, when you are disconnecting the coolant lines and remove the core you use some clothes to protect the carpet as fluid may drip. Post comments for further help or information........
Good Luck!!
Thanks for using FixYa!!

Where and how do i get to the heater core on 1993 Buick Skylark


Replacing a heater core is a all day ugly job. You have to remove the dashboard and heater box. Its located behind the glove box. Best thing to do is buy a auto repair manual for your car and read up on this job.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

Removal of heater core 1992 buick skylark


You locate the heater core by following the heater hoses in the engine compartment. These hoses need to be disconnected. Then, working inside the passenger compartment, take off all of the control panel. You'll see screws underneath if you lie on your back. The only trick is to pop out the vent louvers -- just pop them out with a screw driver. There are screws behind them. Take out the glove box. Take off the heater outlet duct and the heater core cover. Pull the heater core straight back to avoid breaking the drain tube. Remove some clamps and that's it.

Heater core - where is it?


Heater cores are located in the passenger compartment, under the dash behind the glove compartment at the firewall, if you look in the engine compartment and follow the the two black hoses that are about 1" to 1-1/4" diameter as they go towards the firewall on the passenger side of the vehicle(towards glovebox area) they are connected directly to the inlet and outlet tubes that are part of the heater core. Good luck !
