Question about 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
Buy a repair manual or do a search on www.youtube.com for instructions on removing the dashboard, or enough of it to get at the heater box. you are lucky in that it does not have passenger side airbag.
when you are in there, do yourself a real favor do both hoses and the heater core. it is 20 and it is not unusual for them to plug up or leak at 10 so you are on borrowed time. when you have reached that point you will know that you never want to do this again.
