Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am
It is really
not that hard. It took me just under three hours. Drain the
coolant,jack up the car (use jack stands) Remove the two heater hoses
at the fire wall, be sure and remove the rubber turn down drain adapter
that is to the right of the heater hoses. Remove the left and right
under dash panels, I can not remmeber how many screw ther are but there
are a few, be sure and find and remove all of them. You should not have
to pry very hard to remove the case. Hold the heater core in the upper
case up in it's place and wiggle the lower case out. It is kind of a
tight fit but not that hard to get out. Once the lower case is out
remove the heater core by pulling it to the rear to clear the fire wall
and remove the assembly. Replace in reverse order. Hope this helps.
Just changed the heater core and followed the previous answer directions, worked good just wanted to add a few things to anyone else. Make sure that you get all the screws out of the bottom case portion there are two screws that are in an indentation that you wont see. You can feel them though with your fingers. You will also have to remove a small electrical component and its bracket on the passenger side. When removing the lower case you have to pry the portion against the fire wall down in order to allow two tabs that extend up behind the upper portion. Or you can pry hard enough away from the firewall and break the tab off as I did. One other thing is the drain boot that you need to remove is next to the ac lines that extend through the fire wall. There are two screws that are next to the heater hoses on the engine side of the fire wall you do not have to remove these.

Tips for a great answer:
its clogged it can be cleared with the use of Garden hose p[ump.The water has
to be turn into the heater hose line and then water has to be removed
out via the pump.
