    REMOVAL

  • Duane Wong
    Duane Wong Oct 07, 2010

    On 1990–98 vehicles:
    Remove all instrument panel mounting screws and pull the instrument panel back as far as it will go without disconnecting any wiring harnesses.
    Make sure the nuts attaching the instrument panel braces to the dash panel are removed.
    Loosen the right door sill plate and remove the right side cowl trim panel.
    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.
    If equipped with Automatic Temperature Control (ATC), proceed as follows:
    On 1989 vehicles, disconnect the temperature control cable from the ATC sensor.
    Detach the vacuum harness line connector from the ATC sensor harness and detach the electrical connector from the ATC servo connector.
    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.
    Detach the vacuum jumper harness at the multiple vacuum connector near the floor air distribution duct.
    Disconnect the white vacuum hose from the outside-recirculating door vacuum motor.

    Fig. 4: Floor air distribution duct removal — 1989 vehicles




    Fig. 5: Floor air distribution duct removal — 1990–98 vehicles




    Remove the 2 hush panels.
    Remove 1 plastic push fastener retaining the floor air distribution duct to the left end of the plenum.
    Remove the left screw and loosen the right screw on the rear face of the plenum and remove the floor air distribution duct.
    Remove the 2 nuts from the 2 studs along the lower flange of the plenum.

    Fig. 6: Heater core removal — 1989 vehicles




    Fig. 7: Heater core removal — 1990–98 vehicles




    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.
    On 1989 vehicles with ATC, remove the ATC servo from the plenum.
    Remove the 4 retaining screws from the heater core cover and remove the cover from the plenum assembly.
    Pull the heater core and seal assembly from the plenum assembly.
    To install:

    Carefully install the heater core and seal assembly into the plenum assembly. Visually check to ensure that the core seal is properly positioned. Position the heater core cover and install the 4 retaining screws.
    On 1989 vehicles with ATC, install the ATC servo on the plenum.
    Route the vacuum supply hose through the dash panel and seat the grommet in the opening.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    If equipped with ATC, proceed as follows:
    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.
    On 1990–98 vehicles, attach the ATC sensor tube to the evaporator case connector. Install the cross body brace and connect the wiring harness to the blend door actuator.
    Install the bolt to attach the lower right end of the instrument panel to the side cowl. Install the right side cowl trim panel and tighten the right door sill plate attaching screws.
    On 1989 vehicles, install the instrument panel pad and the glove compartment door. On 1990–98 vehicles, push the instrument panel back into position and install all instrument panel mounting screws. Install the right and left lower instrument panel insulators.
    Connect the vacuum supply hose(s) to the vacuum source.
    Install the right and left lower instrument panel insulators and install the 2 hush panels.
    Unplug the heater core tubes and the heater hoses and connect the heater hoses to the heater core tubes. Fill the cooling system.
    Connect the negative battery cable and check the system for proper operation.

Need to know where my Heater Core hoses hook up to on the engine? I see the Hoses but is there a seperate part that the hose connects to?


The best way to locate a heater core hose is to determine where the heater core is located. Many vehicles have the heater core inside the dash. Other vehicles, usually larger vans and trucks, will have a heater core box inside the engine compartment. Once you have determined where the heater core is located in your vehicle, that will allow you to easily locate a heater core hose. If the heater core is inside the dash, you'll need to examine the firewall for the hoses. If it is in a heater box, you'll need to look around the engine compartment for the box.




Heater cores located inside dashes can be very difficult and time consuming to replace. Depending on the layout of your engine compartment, it can also be difficult to locate a heater core hose. If there is very little clearance between the engine and the firewall, you may have difficulty finding the hoses. You might need to use a flashlight to look from the underside in some cases. You will typically be able to identify the heater hoses where they enter the firewall by looking for two two small diameter hoses that protrude into the engine compartment. You can then trace those hoses to their other ends, where they will typically connect to a thermostat housing, the radiator, or a t-connector.


Hope this helps.
