This procedure is rather difficult since you have to pull the dash. Oreilly sells a book for about twenty five dollars that will help you out. It is an all day job and hopefully you can do it. If I were you and don't have experience I would leave it alone.

Replacing heater core on 1993 Plymouth acclaim


replacing a heater core is never easy on a car unless you can access it from under the hood. More than likely you will have to remove it from inside the vehicle under the dash on the passenger side. Removing it and installing it is the easy part. Getting to it is the hard part. It is just a matter of removing enough dash parts to gain access to the core. That is the hard part. This is why this is a very expensive repair as the majority of the cost is labor. The core itself it relatively inexpensive. Look under the hood and follow the heater hoses to the firewall, you will then know the location of the core and know if it can be removed from under the hood. If you have to remove it from inside the vehicle just slowly start taking parts of the dash off and go very slow. Take photos if necessary in order to remember how to put it all back together. Some dash panels will snap off and some will be held in place with a screw or clip. Be very careful and do not break and parts. You can do this if you take you time

Im replacing the heater core in 2001 jeep cherokee...i have the dash off down to fire wall...all screws are out of bottom heater box but I cant remove the bottom of box to get to heater core...what am I...


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.

How to replace a heater core in a 1998 ford f150


There is no short cut or fast way to do this. The dash has to come out to access the heater box and replace the core. So the steps in replacing the heater core are to disconnect the heater hoses, remove the dash, to access the heater corecover on the front of the heater case and replace the core. Reassembly is in the reverse order as disassembly. Fill the cooling system with new coolant, and burp the air form the cooling system.
