John barfneck: the basement guy contest is just for collecting your info so they can then cold call you and try to sell your their services after the contest is over.................
B Wilson: Ugh lol this is gonna be a BEOTCH... steam started pouring from the dash and vents today.. and im not taking the mofo to the shop.. thanks for the video gave me a good idea of what im getting into.. we need to shoot the designer ha
thebubba1: Absolutely No Goddam excuse that in 2015 a heater core/ Ac condenser change is still this big of a pain in the ass........FN car designers need to pull their heads out of their asses and stop making this contraption such a chore to get to.
Allen Lichner: Your video makes this much easier. Killer job. Thanks for posting
kenny clower: What a bunch of bullcrap just to change heater core.......piss poor design
Luis S.: Easier than you think just need basic tools and a day or 2
raisinhellracing: Wasn't that bad, I have a 99 1500 Silverado, I was done in less than 4 hrs
Eric Richards: I replaced my heater core today on my 1995 z71 I didn't pull my dash out. you can access the heater core at the bottom of the unit. Just unscrew about 7 9/32 screws and disconnect the heater hoses. its not an easy job but you dont have to take your dash out.
ImRamro: I always sat that the import cars are mad by gremlins because every thing is so hard to get at.
I think Gremlins designed this part placement too, lol.
onehit pick: I've replaced head gaskets much more easily than this. Why would one make a common failure point so difficult to access?
phartsdust: I have this problem on a 114k mile truck. Fvuck Chevy. This is absolutely craptie design folks. Maybe when China takes over Government Motors they will make a better one. Wish i had my Nissan Frontier back. Never again,.... will fix and sell this pretty tvrd asap.
ImRamro: It should be the same. I was told that the older Chevy's could be removed by simply removing the lower housing blower box located under the passenger side dash. All I found was a dead end and had to reinstall all the housing bolts. I am pretty sure that this is the only way to remove it. It is not very hard, just intimidating and a lot of bolt organization. Please let me know if you get into it and run into a problem, I will be more than happy to help.
m4hobby: you it be the same for a 95-99 Chevy pick up?
ImRamro: If you document everything you remove with video or photos it makes things easier. It is not hard, just really intimidating and a lot of making sure the bolts get placed in baggies and there is video or photos with notes on where they came from. The most difficult part is actually when the dash is split, the core is a snug fit and must be pulled straight up and out. All I can say is be patient and document where all the bolts and parts go, Good Luck!
Mose177: scares the crap out of me
chevy383strkr: i havent tried since i dont wanna mess it up and have to replace the whole heating core
ImRamro: I just saw this today, did you get it off?
chevy383strkr: my problem is getting the fitting off
ImRamro: If you mean the fitting that locks the heater core hose on, then you don't need to remove the core. You should be able to replace that locking coupler thingy from the engine compartment. Just be sure you don't bend the aluminum heater core part. This is super soft and if you bend the crap out of the metal tubes, the heater core will start leaking. You can just fit the hose over the tube and use a heavy duty hose clamp too, if the heater hose will fit over the tube a few inches.
chevy383strkr: hey i just got a problem with mine, the plastic fitting on the tip of the heating core broke and the tube had just fallen off instead of going through this whole mess of replacing the whole heating core or is it possible that i replace just the plastic fitting? please let me know asap
