Cadillac Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Good morning, heater core that is a big job by doING it yourself you have saves a lot of money. And thanks for the question
Okay I'll start with a couple things to be aware of. To remove the heater core you have to remove the case which is behind the dash which also has the evaporater core you will have to discharge the ac, it's under alot of pressure so be sure and use proper equipment. Next when dropping the steering column don't allow the wheel to turn on the column because of the clock spring. Don't pry on anything be sure take all screws the case has some inside some out.
I can get you thr factory manual but I doubt it would benefit you more. Might I suggest youtube, watching a video of it being done usually helps more. That and me helping you you can do this I can do phone calls if needed. The bolts you asking about I want to be sure are you talking about the single bolt holding the column to rack or thr bolts under the dash securing column?
Yes sir I will look and will be hear this afternoon just message me when ready
Yes sir one thing i do and i dont beleive the manual tells you to do this is I remove the seats only a few bolts hold them in and with them out of the way you can lay down and have more room. And about the column once you take off the knee bolster or lower dash panel there will be two bolts holding the coumn to dash take those out and just let the collumn lay down you don't have to remove it.
Sir I can tell by your tone you are frustrated, and with that mindset perhaps i am not the one to help you. You are doing a frustrating repair, and just so you know i have probably put over 50 at least of the heater core or actuator i have done this job many times. I am sorry for your frustration. I will give you a copy of the factory service manual
