I was just thinking, before I send you these instructions do have any way to drain and refill the refrigerant from the air conditioning system?

I do not believe I need to do this for the heater core do I ?
Auto Mechanic: nelson freitas,
 replied 7 months ago

yes in order to replace the heater core you need to remove the dash board and then remove the HVAC unit that is behind the dash. You will then be able to open up the HVAC unit and replace the heater core that is inside.

Sorry I was unable to send the information last night as the JustAnswer website was down.

Here are the instructions on how to remove the HVAC unit and also the instrument panel.

If you need anything else let me know and I will try to get you any information you need as soon as possible.
