Expert:  Eric replied 6 years ago.

Hi,

 

you asked for directions- those are the directions. not sure what else you are looking for. What problem do you seem to be having with replacing the heater core? It is a straightforward repair procedure. IF there is a specific problem in this you are encountering, you have to give more specific information.

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
how do you get if out. info is not direct
Expert:  Eric replied 6 years ago.

HI,

 

What have you removed so far? Have you got the right side of instrument panel raised and supported( I use a bungee cord to hold it up)? Have you removed the nuts and screw holding the case to the firewall?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
thats what i need to find the bolts,,,on the engine side cannot find a/c stuff in the way found the hoses
Expert:  Eric replied 6 years ago.

Hi,

 

I can describe them to you, but its a little confusing when you are standing right at the vehicle. Give me a couple of minutes and let me see if I can come up with a diagram to send you showing their location

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
diagram would be great!!! have diagram u sent with 1st answer helps a little bit. but another would help more
Expert:  Eric replied 6 years ago.

Hi,

 

Does yours have auxillary ac and heat, or just the front unit?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
just the front unit, has 350 motor
Expert:  Eric replied 6 years ago.

Hi,

 

This is the only other diagram i have:

Two of the nuts are just above where the heater hoses go into the firewall. The 3rd nut is just below the hoses and to the right. You can unbolt the clamp holding the accumulator and it will move a little bit with AC hoses still attached to give a little more access.
