Is a typical case, but we can use like a general method:
First remove all the water from your system by draining the radiator, it's best to do it this way so you can add new coolant and keep the mess to a minimum, after your water is drained, go ahead and remove the heater core feed lines.

  1. Remove top of dash pad, do this by removing several screws located under the foward lip of the pad, don't forget the screws in the defroster vent holes!
  2. Remove the lower trim panel from the underside passenger side dash ( if there is one there)
  3. Look under the dash on the passenger side and you will see the plastic box in which houses the heater core, remove all the screws that surround this box, there will be one screw on the top that will be very difficult to get at, this is why you have removed the top of the dash so you can get at it with two hands,if you need to see this screw get outside of the car and look down at the dash from the passenger side and then your going to have to depend on feeling with your hands.
  4. At this point you should have the plastic box off and now your looking directly at the heater core, the core is held in place by a steel clamp fastened with screws, remove these screws, and remove the clamp.
  5. Now it's time to remove the heater core , get some plastic sheeting and lay it around the passenger foot well because there going to be some water in the core yet, pull it out gently, you might have to wiggle and gently pull, take your time, it should come out fairly easy.
  6. Once you have the old core out, it's time to install the new one, I can't tell you how important it is at this point to be very patient when installing the new core, you may have to slightly bend the new core tubes to get them through the firewall, you may end up taking it out a couple of times BE CAREFULL!!!!!!
  7. Once you have sucessfully got the core in place, install the core clamp, then re-assemble

Make sure that after you have installed everything and you fill your system with water, slide your heat temp control to full heat the check everything for leaks!


For the specific case, Grand Cherokee, check this info, maybe the answer are in there: ZJ Secc 24 Heating and Air Conditioning (Page 41 and Next)

Good luck!!!

Wow. I realize this is an old thread, but this has to be said:
zjlimited you should be a little more clear as to which model this is supposed to cover, because for a 2000 grand cherokee (wj) this is a very major operation. If it was as easy as you make it sound, the dealership wouldn't charge $1500.00 (plus $250.00 or more for parts) and take 2 full days minimum to do the work. People come here for exact answers, not generic fixes from self qualified backyard mechanics that have never actually worked on the problem themselves. Your answer for this topic will get the average person into very real problems.
If you intend to perform this surgery on your wj, buy the shop manual. Skip the cd's, haynes, chiltons, and go for the real and true factory service manual. Until you have a good manual its best not to attempt this operation.
And dont forget to address the chronic blend door issues while you are in that heat box or you will regret it later...

How do i replace/install a heater core for a 1999 limited edition jeep cherokee 4.0 liter 6cyclinder


I would make sure the core is the problem. You may have a heater control valve that cuts off flow to the core by vac. or a blend door that cuts off air flow thru the core.
You will need a shop manual to replace the core. The dash and console have to come out, along with discharging the ac.

Heater blower is working but only blows cold air 2001 Grand Cherokee Jeep Limited 3.1d


Either your heater core is plugged up or your line to the core is restricted. Do a complete reverse rad flush with a radiator cleaning solution and try it. If that doesn't work you'll need a new heater core.
