Re: 1993 Crown Vic -- heater core -- help ??

Hi! Just noticed my windows steaming and I assume its the heater core- can
smell the antifreeze. Have read the good info on removal - my question is -
will just leaving heater off keep me from the steaming of the windows, or
do I have to disconnect the core? thanx, bob d.

disconnect and bypass... best to keep the circulation in the heater hoses,
so just hook 'em together

Hi! I did that - just got the Ford authorized instructions for taking the
core - out - what a mess! I have go to believe that a careful cut in the
bottom of that big plastic cover under the dash might get access. Does
that sound feasible? thanx, bob

No dont cut holes. You must remove the heater box. You can remove all
the bolts on the pass side(bracket near hump and kick panel under the
dash) holding the dash and pull it out on that side. A 2x4 wedged in
between the door jam and the bottom of the dash is enough to hold it out
enough to remove the heater box (dont be afraid to pull on it hard, if
it doesnt want to move you missed a bolt or two). Also, remove the glove
box completly right away, it makes it easier to see. Being it is your
first one, it will be a major pain in the ass, but it can be done
without removing the whole dash and putting it in the back seat like the
book says :)
