This is a big job which involves discharging and removing parts of the A/C system as well as removing parts of the dash. I had the core done on a 94 Sable years ago and it was a very labor intensive and expensive job. Here are some instructions I found for a 94 Taurus which should be the same thing or similiar, but I don't guarantee that. Please note that these instructions were not tested by me and may contain errors or be incomplete in some way. For example "remove instrument panel" sounds simple but in reality is a process in itself requiring the removal of many screws. Naturally you would have to recharge the A/C and refill the coolant when done.

1. Remove instrument panel and lay it on front seat.
2. Remove A/C evaporator housing as outlined.
3. Remove vacuum source line from heater dash panel seal (18529).
4. Remove heater dash panel seal from heater core tubes (refer to Heater Case Assembly).
5. Remove four heater core access cover retaining screws and remove heater core cover (18B300) from A/C evaporator housing.
6. Lift heater core and seals from A/C evaporator housing.

1. Transfer three foam core seals to new heater core.
2. Install heater core and seals into A/C evaporator housing.
3. Position heater core cover on A/C evaporator housing. Install four retaining screws.
4. Install heater dash panel seal on heater core tubes.
5. Install vacuum source line through heater dash panel seal.
6. Install A/C evaporator housing into vehicle as outlined.
7. Reinstall dashboard components.

Best of Luck!

Very big and time consuming job, you can wreck electronic connections and really end up with a useless car that won't even start. I would take it to a ford dealer with a good reputation, it's worth the cost.

you have to remove the dash. i suggest you go to an auto parts store and buy an after market tech manual. by the way everything under that smooth dash is sharp and give yourself a good weekend to complete. GOOD LUCK.

Heater blows cold

If no coolant flowing through the heater core then ther is no heat. There are 2 possible root causes needed to check out: 1- THE VALVE TO CONTROL THE COOLANT FLOWING TO THE HEATER CORE IS NOT OPENING AS DESIRED. 2- THE HEATER CORE GOT CLOGGED UP AND NEED TO BE FLUSHED.

How to replace

  1. Measure the hose while it is still attached
  2. Go to an Auto parts store and buy that length plus a few inches. Tell them you need HEATER HOSE
  3. Unless you are in a warm climate RIGHT NOW, buy some coolant.
  4. Purchase the band clamps for it or the same type that are on it.
  5. Disconnect the water pump end of the hose and quickly replace it with the new one. HOLD that disconnected end UP.
  6. Slide the new clamp over the non-connected end of the new hose down to the water pump.
  7. Tighten that end.
  8. Remove the opposite end of the OLD hose from the heater core.
  9. Slide the other clamp on the new hose then connect to the heater core.
  10. Tighten that end. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE HEATER CORE END!!!!! You will crush that tube!!!!
  11. Check the radiator fuild level.
  12. Refill as required.
