R & R heater cor e 2005 Jeep liberty


This is a VERY large job, requiring removal of the dashboard and the HVAC box from the vehicle. The heater core and ac evaporator are inside the HVAC box, as are several other components (doors, blower, etc). Your best bet if you want to tackle the job are to search YouTube for relevant videos, and to get a manual (Chilton, Haynes, etc) that will give you step by step instructions.

Why must i discharge the air conditioning refridgerant prior to removal of the heater core on a 2003 c230 mercedes 1.8l coupe.


The reason in why you must evacuate the a/c system with an a/c machine before you can remove the heater core is because the evaporator is located inside of the heater core box assembly. So before the heater core box assembly can be removed the a/c system must be evacuated then you can disconnect the a/c lines that go through the firewall to the evaporator.

Heater core replacement. Haynes manual and car have major differences.


Heater core is removed from inside the cabin. About a two hour job. The hardest part is removing the hoses in the engine bay.
In the cabin, remove the beauty panel under the glovebox; remove the glovebox, and move the HVAC controller. The heater housing, or cover is held with two screws, and the core is held with one screw (clamp).
Remove the HVAC module assembly. Refer to HVAC Module Assembly Replacement.
Remove the HVAC filter cover.
Remove the heater core/evaporator tube seals from the module.
Remove the heater core cover screws (1).
Remove the heater core retaining screws (1).
Remove the heater core retaining straps.
Remove the heater core.
Remove the rubber seals from the inlet/outlet pipes of the heater core.

Installation Procedure

Install rubber seals to the outlet/inlet pipes of the heater core.
Install the heater core to the module.
Install the heater core retaining straps.



Install the heater core retaining screws (1).
Install the heater core cover.



Install the heater core cover screws (1).



Install the heater core/evaporator tube seal from the module.
Install the HVAC filter cover.
Install the HVAC module assembly. Refer to HVAC Module Assembly Replacement.

This is the best that I can do for you, hope this works

How do you remove heater coil unit ?


This will be a big job. The heater core is tucked up under the dashboard. In some cases you can get the heater core out without removing the dashboard, in other cases some or most of the dashboard will need to come out.

If you are entertaining tackling this job yourself, you will definitely need a service manual. The ones from automotive stores, Haynes, Chilton, etc, will provide generic instructions. For specific detailed instructions, order a Workshop manual for your vehicle. It will provide detailed instructions on how to remove, test, repair, replace the heater core.

In general, the Haynes and similar manuals provide basic information for those who have skill in repairing vehicles with little assistance. The Workshop manuals also require skill but are dedicated to just one model and year and provide much more detailed instructions.

Best of luck, Jim

I am wanting to change the heater core in my 2004 Suziki Forenza myself. I am looking for a maintenance manual for this model vehicle or someone with the knowledge of how the dash comes off.


you can go to any auto parts store and buy a haynes manual for your specific vehicle. they are based on a complete teardown of vehicle. the manuals are only about 20 to 25 dollars. have a good day !! ( then you will have it just in case something else goes wrong !!)

Evaporator


The following is a general removal procedure of A/C evaporator core. The evaporator is removed differently from different vehicles.
For example, a 1994 Ford Taurus/Mercury Sable instructs you to, "Using a hot knife, cut the top of the air conditioning evaporator housing between the raised outline."

Use a hacksaw or a hot knife to cut the case. Reprinted with the permission of Ford Motor Company.
But a 1993 Ford Probe manual says to simply remove the blower motor and assembly screws before separating the case halves and removing the evaporator.




The following procedure assumes that access to the evaporator has been determined.
  • Recover the refrigerant.
  • Drain the radiator if the heater hose(s) has to be removed to gain access.
  • Remove the heater hose(s), if necessary.
  • Remove any wiring harness, heat shields, brackets, covers, and braces that may restrict access to the evaporator core.
  • Remove the liquid line at the thermostatic expansion valve (TXV) or fixed orifice tube (FOT).
  • Remove the suction line at the evaporator or accumulator outlet.
  • Gain access to the evaporator core as outlined in the service manual.
  • Lift the evaporator from the vehicle.
  • Drain the oil from the evaporator into a calibrated cup.
  • For replacement, reverse the preceding procedure. First, replace the oil with the same amount and type you previously drained.
