Chris Henson: had the same thing happen used a dremel tool was super easy
Chuck Marquart: god damn there's a plastic tool that takes those off
Darick Pash: Worked perfectly...and saved me $15-20 for the plastic tool. thanks
JOE FPOC: our torch is dead, i just took a pneumatic wire wheel and it cut through
that thing in 10 seconds on each side and it fell right off, heater core
unhurt. i actually broke the stupid thing by barely touching it by doing
the cap and rotor :(
pinktacoetr: pliers would have pulled that off a minute after melting plastic.
MR SINISTER1983: I just found the easiest way to remove the old one. Use a solder gun from
walmart and melt your way through. The solder gun gets hot and is small for
that tight area. It literally takes a minute or two.
kingtchr1: Thanks man this helped us in Phoenix...
tinytwin: i cut mine off with a serrated steak knife! lol its a bitch finding this
part in michoacan mexico.... :/
T Hoang: They have a tool to remove that it was like $15 or $20. Wish I would have
seen this or new about the tool before I took a saw-all to mine lol!!!
trapperrod1: great info ! My hose broke on my trip back from Fla. at night and just by
passed the heater. In the day light it looked like there was some sort of
plastic coupler but didnt know if I had to chang the whole heater core.
george rojas: I could of had that off a long time ago before u did an had the new part
installed lol just saying
Xavier Casas: freak this saved my life
Jay Dee: This was a great tip. Used it yesterday on my '02 Avalanche. Thanks so much!
michael carr: use a 5/8 gas line tool to remove works just as good as the dealership tool
and cost a lot less then go to auto-zone and get the replacement parts, the
dealership says that there is two different parts and one cost two and a
half times more but they are both the same part but different color will
run you about 70 to 80 dollars at dealership, 13 dollars at auto-zone for
both part no# 800-409 for GM
