To remove the heater core, first drain the cooling system and disconnect the heater hoses from the core at the firewall


Next, remove the five heater core access panel screws and panel from the underside of the dash panel


nally, remove the core by pulling it rearward (to clear the heater hose tubes at the top) then down and out of the plenum

If the core has foam pads on the ends, use a generous amount of Vaseline to get it to slip back in.
