i am still working on my jeep to remove the heater core
i will lower the steering colum (thanks for the advice) do i need to unplug all the wire from the steering colum
and do you have another shortcut?
on many model we can move the dash away just enough to remove the havc unit
no, you do not have to remove everything,I will usually remove what is necessary to get at the heater core ,some cars yes but in this case remove what you need to get at the heater core ...guy
