I would drill them dimples by the heat stakes out and install heater core cover screws. Both inside the heater core cover and the heater air outlet cover. use a 7/32" or a 5.5mm bit.

I have a 2000 chevy impala my heat doesn't work,

first it to verify the coolant flow. I suspect the heater core isn't flowing, you may need to take a garden hose and take both heater hoses off, and flush in both directions to clean the heater core. flush in both directions until you get clean water flow. I am assuming the coolant level is OK, and the water pump is pumping and the engine is getting warm enough.

My heater doesnt get hot until my engine gets hot. Then, will blow cool air when i let off the gas. It is a 2006 chevy imapala. Any suggestions?

Check to see if the heater core's 2 tubes at the firewall are getting hot or not. If not, then the heater core needs to be flushed out, or replaced, whichever is easier (flushing is easier).

Good luck on this repair.

No heat at idle in 2006 Impala. Had air bled out of the hose going to/out of heater core 3 YEARS IN A ROW. Mechanics can't find leaks. Don't know what else they checked if anything. What it the real...

The answer is no chevy couldn't care less about safty issues I could tell you storys there fuel systems.But getting back to your problem you say you don't have any leaks at least that you can see.Try this start vehicle and let it worm up to opperateing temp. Put your hands anound bolth haeter hoses going into and comeing out of the heater core if coolant is flowing through the core they bolth will be hot. If olny one is hot that means you have no flow. Some vehicles have whats called mixing valve it could be vacuum or cable opperated or even electricaly opperated but it will be in the heater lines before the coolant gets to the heater core to regulate you amount of hot coolant enters the core. It could also be a problem with the core being pluged or restriced however 06 is kind of new to have this problem because your coolant is good for at least 5 years but i would inspect the entire cooling system anywhy.Im vary formilar with systems but i haven't worked on a 2006 impala so i can't give you exact insturitions however what i have discribed is standard for all cooling systems and if coolant can't flow through the heater core you will have no heat hope this can help you

2006 Chevy Impala Heater only works when accelorater is depressed

Impalas are known for this issue, where the heating won't work properly.... usually caused by trapped air/bubbles in cooling system or slightly low coolant level. Park car so that the right front side is elevated and remove the coolant OVERFLOW bottle cap (NEVER the radiator cap) while engine is running.. This should allow the trapped air to escape. Also add a bit more coolant if needed.
