Yes I am fixing it myself I"m installing a new one. I tred nothing yet. I know that I have to collapes the air shocks. What I need to know is how to detach the blower fan and ac hoses ect . I understand this can be done easier by removing 3 bolt in the back of the cab the holds the housing but I cant find them

The best way to do this is raise the cab in the service position and then disconnect the hoses and electrical connectors. Then support the cab with a suitable lifting device. Once it is safely supported you then disconnect the pistons and then the rear pins at the hinge. Then lift off the cab. Let me know if you need more help.

Thanks for the response.This unit has AC and heat and I would like to separate it from the cab before removing it. I am under the understanding that it can be unbolted from the rear of the cab before removing it. The heater core housing with the fan assembly are mounted in slotted holes that once loose, can be separated from the cab before removal without disconnecting all the oil cooler lines. your thoughts
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 5 years ago

Thanks for the followup. Yes in some cases you can try to lay and tie components off to the side and some of these shortcuts are not always in the manual but get picked up job to job over time. It is going to be whatever is easier for you in this case. I do have a manual I can share and Ill send over the link just in case you are interested in viewing it.

I own this manual already and it was helpful except it did not address my short cut as you said.
With the cab tilted back and secured I think I can remove the gas shocks and using my lift device lower the cab back down. Then remove the hinge bolts ,slide the cab forward then I believe I will have enough room to remove the heat exchanger and fan assembly without disconnecting the oil lines ect. Any pit falls you see with is process?
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 5 years ago

That sounds good. I can not think of anything else that you should run into.
