How do you change the heater core in a 91 suburban

how do you change the heater core in a 91 suburban

Hello the complete heater box assembly must be removed from beneath the dash board and disassembled out of the vehicle to perform the removal and replacement of the heater core . If you have air conditioning that means discharging the A/C system prior to beginning the removal of the A/C / heater box assembly .
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

how do you get the assembly out do you have to remove the parts from the inside the engine compartment or just inside cab

 

Expert:  Kevin Bourcier replied 4 years ago.
The fasteners ( nuts and screws are unbolted mostly from the engine compartment firewall and there is 1 " hidden " nut attached at the top from the inside that you access through the glove box opening using a 12 to 18 inch extension and a 10 mm. socket . The heater box comes off the firewall from inside below the dash . It is necessary to undo the lower mount of the dash and the screws at the windshield as well you must remove the heater control head .

Expert:  Kevin Bourcier replied 4 years ago.
The A/C lines run to the evaporator which is inside the A/C - heater box .

If you were able to " cheat " the heater core out without any damage then good for you . You are not obligated to accept .
