REMOVAL



WARNING: HOT ENGINE COOLANT CAN CAUSE SEVERE BURNS. DO NOT OPEN THE RADIATOR DRAIN COCK WHEN THE COOLING SYSTEM IS HOT AND PRESSURIZED. ALLOW THE COOLANT TO DECREASE TO ROOM TEMPERATURE BEFORE STARTING REPAIR OPERATIONS.

  1. Drain approximately 1.9 liters (2 qts) of coolant from the radiator, Drain the coolant into a clean container.
  2. Disconnect the heater hoses.
  3. Disconnect the vent door cables.
  4. Disconnect the blower motor wire.
  5. Disconnect the defroster duct.
  6. Remove the nuts that attach the heater housing studs to the engine compartment side of the dash panel.
  7. Remove the heater housing assembly by tilting it downward, to disengage it from the' defroster duct. Pull it rearward and out from under the instrument panel.
  8. Remove the heater housing cover from the housing.
  9. Remove the heater core from the housing.

No, you dont have to remove the dash parts, just follow the above instructions, once you get the airbox out, then you can remove the heater core,Tim
