Re: Any tips for heater box replacement?
drop the steering wheel is a good idea, dash out is pretty easy, can be done one person done it myself at half dozen times, the heater box is simple enough, except some of the nuts in the engine bay are a real pain to get to, there is a metal bit on the trans tunnel makes life easier if you remove it ... BUT ... it should have a nut and a bit of metal holding the insulation in the engine bay to the firewall and once undone, no hope in hell of getting back on with the trans in the way unless you drop it down (even then it will be damn tight) so your call on that, a towel and or plastic in the passenger footwell for leaks from the heater box (yes it will leak a little bit of coolant no matter what you think).
Other then that have fun, I find it simpler to remove cluster etc, makes handling the dash easier, but not required, bolts either side behind kick panels, row of screws along the top of the dash, and dont forget the 10mm bolt with the earth connection top of the dash, pretty easy really.
I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think
