Heater Removal

I recently bought an XF falcon and note that the heater has been disconnected. I spoke to the previous owner who advised that the heater core was leaking, hence being disconnected.

Does any one know of an easy way to remove the heater? It is also fitted with air conditioning which I believe is part of the heater.

Any advise would be appreciated.

Re: Heater Removal

i dont think that it is too easy to do. you have to take out the dash to get to the heater box. can have a look in my workshop manuel if u want.

Re: Heater Removal

Yes, dashboard removal is required.....absolute pain in the arse....i've done 3 now and I have vowed never to do it again.

If you do take it out...the lever that changes the air from fresh to recirc will probably be broken, just get a couple of small screws and a thin strip of metal, use the metal as a bridge across the break and put a screw into either side of the broken lever. Glue is not strong enough.
If its not broken, i'd screw the steel plate onto it anyway to stop it from breaking in the future.

Another tip, if you see anything that looks suspicious, fix it, dont leave it cause I doubt you will want to take the dash ot again, and you'll get pissed off with whatever it is that breaks, or stuffs up.

Do I really have to write something funny in here?
