Question about 1989 Buick LeSabre
The heater cores on this are replaced from under the hood.i believe the heater hoses connect to the heater core on top of the heater box under the hood.there should be a plate on this box with several screws(bolts),that hold it on that needs to be removed to get to the heater core itself.you may have to remove weather stripping to get to the bolts.there is a holding bracket that holds the heater core to the inside of the box that has to be removed to pull the core out.
