Diagram for replacing the heater core in my 2007 Dodge Grande Caravan SE? Strong smell of Radiator Fluid. No obvious leaks, smell stronger when using defrost. Passenger side carpet is not...


Sorry no pictures
Replacing the Front Heater Core in a 2006 Dodge Caravan.
1 Turn the steering wheel so that the wheels point straight forward.
2 Disconnect the negative (black) battery cable.
3 Drain the coolant by twisting open the valve at the bottom of the radiator. Use a clean container that holds at least 10.5 quarts. You will reuse the coolant later.
4 Remove the panel on the lower left side of the steering column and disconnect the parking brake cable with a pair of pliers.
5 Unscrew the 10 bolts that connect the steering column cover liner to the instrument panel and remove the cover.
6 Turn the key to the LOCK position and turn the steering wheel to the LOCKED position.
7 Unhook the gear shift cable and remove its mounting bracket.
8 Unscrew the two screws that connect the bezel to the instrument panel and remove the retaining clips. Remove the bezel.
9 Remove the two screws that connect the steering column shroud to the column and remove the shroud.
10 Remove the coupler from the steering column and intermediate steering shaft.
11 Loosen the nuts that connect the lower steering column mounting bracket, but do not remove them. Completely remove the two nuts and washers from the upper bracket.
12 Pull out the steering column.
13 Remove the interconnect and bracket that connects the instrument panel to the chassis wiring.
14 Remove the boot from the bottom of the steering shaft.
15 Use locking pliers to pinch off the heater hoses in the engine compartment. Remove the plate covering the heater core (the hoses run through it) and disconnect the hoses.
16 Unclip the connectors that hold in the heater core. Lift the accelerator pedal to enable you to slide the heater core out part way. Press the brake pedal to make room to completely remove the heater core.
17 Replace the heater core. Installation is the reverse of removal. The nuts on the steering column mounting bracket should be torqued to 105 ft. lbs. Torque the pinch bolt on the coupler to 21 ft. lbs.

How do you install a heater core


Get a Haynes Repair manual for that vehicle and follow it closely. Some main points are to disconnect the airbags, completely remove the dash by loosening the steering column unscrewing the dash and unpluging the wiring harnesses and taking the dash out of the way all in one piece. Then by following the instructions in the manual, the rest should be a piece of cake. Be careful not to break the flasher button on the top of the steering column and then have to get into the column to replace the turnsignal switch like I now have to do.

How to change a ignition switch on a 1990 Z24 cavalier and a diagramof what to look for


Ignition Switch REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 1982–91 Vehicles The switch is located on the steering column and is completely inaccessible without first lowering the steering column. The switch is actuated by a rod and rack assembly. A gear on the end of the lock cylinder engages the toothed upper end of the rod.
  1. Lower the steering column; be sure to properly support it.
  2. Put the switch in the OFF-UNLOCKED position. With the cylinder removed, the rod is in OFF-UNLOCKED position when it is in the next to the uppermost detent.
  3. Unfasten the two switch screws and remove the switch assembly. Fig. 1: Removal and installation of the ignition switch and related steering column components — 1990 vehicle shown 87958059.gif
    Fig. 2: Exploded view of a steering column including the ignition switch — 1990 vehicle with standard column shown 87958060.gif
    Fig. 3: Exploded view of the steering column including the ignition switch — 1990 vehicle with tilt column shown 87958061.gif
    To install:
  4. Before installing, move the new switch slider (standard columns with automatic transaxle) to the extreme left position. Move the switch slider (standard columns with manual transaxle) to the extreme left position. Move the slider (adjustable columns with automatic transaxle) to the extreme right position and then move the slider one detent to the left (off lock). Move the slider (adjustable columns with manual transaxle) to the extreme right position.
  5. Install the activating rod into the switch and assemble the switch on the column. Tighten the mounting screws. Use only the specified screws, since overlength screws could impair the collapsibility of the column.
  6. Reinstall the steering column.

How to replace ignition switch


The switch is located inside the channel section of the brake pedal support and is completely inaccessible without first lowering the steering column. The switch is actuated by a rod and rack assembly. A gear on the end of the lock cylinder engages the toothed upper end of the rod.
If your vehicle is equipped with the SIR system follow the instructions in to disable the system before proceeding.
Lower the steering column, be sure to properly support it.
Put the switch in the OFF , unlocked position. With the cylinder removed, the rod is in the lock position when it is in the next to the uppermost detent. The OFF , unlocked position is two detents from the top.
Remove the two switch screws and remove the switch assembly.
Before installing, place the new switch in the OFF , unlocked position and make sure the lock cylinder and actuating rod are in the OFF , unlocked (third detent from the top) position.
Install the activating rod into the switch, then assemble the switch onto the column. Tighten the mounting screws. Use only the specified screws since overlength screws could impair the collapsibility of the column.
Reinstall the steering column.
Enable the SIR system.
