How to replace a heater core in a 2009 dodge journey

It will require several hours of labor just to get into the heater core. Its not so much the heater core replacement, its taking most if not all of the panels underneath the passenger side underneath the dashboard. Dpending on your car model, it may also require you to remove the glove box just to have access to the heater core.

In rare cases you have to remove the whole top dash board but most cars in general only require to remove panels underneath the dashboard on the passenger side. It's tricky to remove the heater core because it is well hidden behind many panels, a whole lot of screws to remove. Then you have to remove or cut the heater hoses in front of the engine compartment as those hoses are attached to the heater core.

I just replace the heater core in my old buick and it took some effort to undo all those panels and hoses and screws but i finally got it all done and heater works perfect. That repair at a automovtive repair shop would of cost me 350 to 400 dollars. I just spent 35.00 bucks for the heater core and another 12.00 bucks for new heater hoses and that was it, that and the intense labor involved to remove the old heater core. But i saved a huge bundle by doing it by my self, good luck.

Replace heater core

    • Drain the cooling system. Draining the cooling system will prevent toxic engine coolant from leaking into the passenger cabin of the vehicle during removal of the heater core. To drain the cooling system, simply disconnect the lower radiator hose from the radiator by loosening the hose clamp and pulling the hose off. Be sure to drain the fluid into a sealable container and dispose of the coolant at an appropriate disposal site.
    • 2Pull the dashboard six inches rearward. In order to do this, you must remove the following parts; the center dash bolt (located under the defroster vent cover), the bolts under the driver and passenger kick boards, the bolt connecting the dashboard to the radio mount, and the the bolt connecting the dashboard to the rear of the glove box. The locations of these bolts are immediately apparent upon looking under the dash. Once you have removed these bolts, you can pull the dashboard rearward and secure it.
    • 3Remove the heater core box. The heater core box is a black plastic box that surrounds the heater core. This part should be visible when looking down into the dashboard from the passenger side seat. Remove the two bolts on top holding it to the firewall and another on the bottom near the foot well. After removal of these bolts, the heater core and box are attached to the vehicle only by the coolant lines, which you can now disconnect by reaching into the box and pulling them off of the heater core (you may have to loosen the clamps first).
    • 4Install the new heater core. This is accomplished by applying steps 1 through 3 in reverse order; re-connect heater core coolant line, re-install heater core box (be sure to apply silicon sealant to the edges of the box, hermetically sealing it), replace the dashboard and install bolts, and re-fill the cooling system.

Heater not working properly

Your heater core could be blocked. The easiest way to find out is pull it and see if there is anything in it. If not have your cooling system completely flushed out. also make sure none of the heater core hoses are being crimped.

Possible plugged AC drain (Chrysler Sebring)

If you are getting clear liquid, with the A/C on, then you have a clogged drain tube. If it is green or reddish, you have a bad heater core. Should be able to have someone blow out the drain tube to clear it out.
