Clear a wide path for taking the unit out. Is a terrible thing when wiring gets damaged due to not being able to see whats going on.

Can I change heater core in 1989 s10 2.5 no air without taking dash out


The dash does not have to be removed for heater core replacement. Remove any paneling for heater box access and remove box assembly and change core. Flat rate time at a shop is about 1.9 hours to complete this repair

How do you replace the heater core


Most heater cores are located below the dash board on the passenger side, it does involve a lot of labor for the most part. In rare cases the dash has to be totally removed, but most heater cores can be removed by removing plastic panels or covers underneath the passenger side dash board. Mind you that there's a lot of bolts and fastners to be removed and wire harnesses to disconnect just to reach the heater core. Then you have to remove 2 heater hoses in the engine compartment other wise the heater core will not come out from underneath the dash board. You also have to remove the glove compartment to have easier access to the air ducts you have to remove, takes quite a while if you don't know what you are doing.
I just replaced the heater core on my Oldsmobile and it took me several hours just to undo all the ducts, bolts and fastners to get to the heater core, the labor involved is what gives you trouble most of the time.

Rear heater core water lines leaking


You will have to change it out!
If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
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 threfore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.

Heater Core
  • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess 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.
