How do you replace the heater core on a 1998 chevy cavalier


Everyone says this is easy, not for me. I've done many heater cores and I never had this much trouble, not even on my Lexus LS400. I'm in the middle of this now and I can't get the cover off the heater box to get to the core. All bolts are out (even the one in the back which took 2 hours) and the cover is loose but it wont drop out. Also, getting to the clamps on the 2 hoses is a real pain. There's not enough room to grab the hoses to twist them loose and pull them off. I'm just gonna cut them off and put on new hoses. I do have a question though. Between the 2 hoses on the engine side of the firewall there's a bolt, does that need to come out to remove the core?

How do i change the heater core


Actually extremely easy as it comes to modern day heater cores. Auto shops will tell you it calls for over 7 hours of labor and will cost you hundreds read on and i will show you how to do it yourself if you are at least slightly vehicle savvy.

First and foremost drain your engine coolant, raise the vehicle and support on jackstands. disconnect both heater hoses from the heater core (between the rear of transmission and subframe) and the 2 10mm bolts that both through to the heater box inside. this is all that is required under the car. Next go back inside the car and remove both left and right sound insulators (black covers under your feet) and remove the center counsel where the shifter is. you will find 4 bolts in the center counsel as well as a horseshoe clip that must be removed to lift the shifter off with the console. next you will find 2 7mm bolts holding the floor heat vent to the heater core cover remove them and the floor vent. Then there are several 5.5mm bolts holding the heater core cover to the air box. remove all gold 5.5 mm bolts and you should be able to pry down on the box and jiggle it a little and WHALAA there is your heater core! Next there are 2 straps holding the core that are also 5.5 mm bolts remove those and the core it does take a little wiggling around but comes out fairly easy. this job litteraly would take even a novice at most probably 2 hours maybe 3. Hope this helps you all !

    98 intrique heater core out


    your right. i just finished 5 minutes ago pulling my heater core out, 1999 Intrigue. If you are good you might be able to loosen the dash, push the bottom back and up and pull off the covers over the heater core for removal, not sure. i didn't have a manual so i pulled the complete console, complete dash, removing all electronics one at a time, remove top cover to get access to the top bolts, pull the rubber door trim from the side to get to 2 13mm head bolts on each side, the metal plate under the steering wheel must come out too, unhook all lights, switches, cig lighters, etc. phisicallly remove the complete dash. then pull off the bottom pieces, 3, of the black box, which holds the heater core. lots of little bolts around the edges, and one holding the heater core pipes. don't loose any of the thousand bolts. have fun.
