The first thing your going to have to do is take it to a repair shop and have the air conditioning system discharged.Disconnect the battery and drain the cooling system.Disconnect the heater hoses at the firewall and also disconnect and plug the evaporator tubes at the firewall and also plug the heater core tubes so that you dont spill any coolant when you take it out.Cap the evaporator tubes so that you dont get any dirt or water in them.Next you want to remove the instrument panel.Then disconnect the main vacuum line from the heater/evaporater housing to the engine.This is located above the rear of the right valve cover.Then pull the hose through the firewall into the inside of the car.Remove the heater/evaporater housing screws which includes a bolt near the top center of the unit,a nut at the top righ,a bolt near the bottom,and a nut on the engine side of the firewal.Make sure that there are no other wires or hoses connected to the housing and then pull the heater/evaporater housing out from under the cowl and remove it from the vehicle.Take out the 4 screws and the heater core cover then you can take out the heater core.Be very carefull not to tear the foam sealing material.To install it reverse everything.hope that this will help a little.

SOURCE: Removing the heater core from 2000 silverado

When I replaced the heater core on my 95 Suburban, I seem to remember having to disconnect the A/C lines on the firewall for the evaporator. There were also several nuts to remove on the engine firewall side from studs on the heater box that pass thru the firewall. It is definately a lot of work.

Good luck.

2000 ford mustang v-6 heater does not blow warm air at all

If the engine is reaching proper operating temperature and blower is working you could have a bad pressure cap or a low coolant level and if not this then possibly an air lock or a plugged heater core or a defective controller unit.

2000 3.8 mustang waterpump leaks at pipe that goes to heater core

That's the return pipe to the pump from the heeater core.It's leaking at the pump? Is it leaking
from the hose that's clamped on,do you think? That is probably a pressed fitiing into the pump
and if it is leaking around the fitting, and the pump has over 30,000 miles on it, I'd just bite the bullet and replace the pump.
I know.....on a 3.8 it isn't the easiest job. (:^) don-ohio

2000 windstar is leaking coolant behind motor and smells with ac on...Heater core?

Yes u have a leaking heater core, below fin d the instructions to replace it.
1997-2000 Ford Windstar 3.8
Heater Core
Inspect ' Replace
Drain the cooling system

Heater Housing

The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core. Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of car. It is therefore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.
The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core.
Heater Core Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain access to the heater core. Remove the heater coolant hoses. Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped). Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps. Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing. To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps. When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.

Strong smell of rad.,fluid coming from heater in a 2000 grand am auto

Sounds like a leaking heater core, must remove dash to replace and is located on the passsenger side of the dash. Before confirming it is the heater core Use a pressure tester and test radiator and all hose check for leaks under the hood first to rule out any other leaks.

Got a 65 mustang coupe and the heater blows cold air. It's Dec and this is the wrong time to look cool in my ride. any troubleshooting suggestions on how to remedy the problem>

To verify you have hot water going into the heater core, remove the two hoses for the heater from your engine and see if you have water running through the core. There is a possibility that your heater core is plugged. If that is ok, then your next best thing is to check your cables running to the heater to verify it is not broken. Lastly, check the heater switch to blower motor resistor on the front of the heater box. It may be broken.
