Removal and Installation

  1. Allow the engine to cool. Following all safety precautions (refer to Section 03-03) and using a thick cloth, turn radiator cap slowly to the first stop. Step back while pressure is released. When the pressure has been released, tighten the radiator cap on the radiator.
  1. Disconnect the heater water hoses (18472) from the heater core and plug the heater water hoses .
  1. In the passenger compartment, remove four screws attaching the heater core cover (18B300) to the heater air plenum chamber . Remove the heater core cover .
  1. Pull the heater core rearward and down, removing it from the heater air plenum chamber .

    For installation, follow removal steps in reverse order. Tighten clamps to 2-3 Nm (18-27 in-lb). Check and add coolant as required. Check the system for proper operation and coolant leaks.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
