It's recommended you replace the heater core while the dash is out. Most fail eventually and pulling the dash isn't something you'd want to do twice.

Actually I don't think you need to pull out the dash to replace the heater core? I had mine replaced by the local mechanic and it didn't cost too much. You probably need a hoist or something at least...

You can replace the heater without taking the whole dash out but you need most of it out. You can't get out from the engine side there is a firewall in the way. You sure he replaced (as distinct from charging for replacement) rather than just the usual approach of plugging the hole with synthetic metal cement?

I was given what I understand to be the old heater core - was a bit of a mess. The mechanic in question used to work for Ford...
