More than likely because there are brackets and lots of tubes and ports for the heater under there and it's easier sto remove/install the core with the dash out of the way.

2007 g6 pontiac heatercore removal step by step or do i have to remove dash

Some of the dash will have to be removed in order to remove the heater box assembly. In most cases, the air conditioning will have to be evacuated/recharged as the AC evap core is also in the same box as the heater core. This has a labor time of 5.9 hours to complete a heater core replacement. Not a job to attempt with out mechanical back ground

How to check and or replace evaporator core on2001 monte carlo?

To check it you need to pressurize the system run the compressor and then you can spray soapy water around it and see if you have a leak If you decide to replace the evap core for the ac be sure to replace the dryer as soon as you open the lines it will start to draw moisture and then the new system will fail or not put out cool air correctly. Unless you absolutely have to change the evap for the ac I suggest you leave it alone unless you have done this before or have someone to work with that know ac.

What's your problem?I have a 1996 Chevrolet Suburban. The AC is blowing out hot air. I have had the truck for 6 years, every Summer its the same thing. The ac does not get cold, I take it to the m

To clarify - - if the truck has rear and heat, you have two heater cores and two evaporator cores. The evap cores carry the freon.
If the leak is in the evap core in the front, the price is probably right.

Where is the evaporator core at? and how much

The evap core is located inside the heater/ac box which unfortunately is under the dash board.

The core itself is not too pricey, say under $200. The lions share of the bill is labor to remove the dash, evacuate the A/C system, and then reinstall them in reverse order.

Depending on vehicle, bill could be as much as $1500, but more likely $500-$1000.

Replacing evaporator core in 1997 plymouth grand voyager!!!!

Hello. My name is Chuck and I owned a radiator and air conditioning repair shop for 20 years. The answer to your question is the whole dash board assembly. You need to remove everything to gain access to the evap core. I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news .At my shop everybody wanted their a/c fixed but nobody wanted to pay the price and I can't blame them. I charged 800 to 900 bucks complete for this job and the chrysler dealer charged about 1200 plus for the same work. Good luck.
