try from the motor compartment? I just replaced my heater core in my 1995 ford escort. You have to take the dash completely out of the car, unhook your negative battery cable, then unhook the hoses on the back firewall, there will be 2 about right in the center of the firewall, they are hooked to your heater core. While you are under the hood, unclip the speedometer cable(needs to be done to get the cluster panel out.) You have to drop your steering wheel before you can get the cluster panel out, take out the cluster panel, radio, heater controls, glove box. The core is IN the plastic housing, so the housing has to come out to change it. Lots of screws and wires to keep track of, so make sure you remember where everything goes. Took me quite awhile, but saved me about $500.00 to do it myself. Denise To add to the above answer, you also have to remove the glove compartment/box. You should be able to see the heater core housing clearly then. To by-pass it you have to unhook both hoses going into the firewall on the passenger side of the engine compartment. Get a hose connector from a parts store or home improvement store. One for a garden hose will work also. Connect those two hoses together. Make sure you use hose clamps. You now bypassed the heater core.

To bypass the heater core you need to remove the two water hoses going through the firewall from the engine compartment to the heater core and connect them together so that the water loops around back to the engine.

Yes, you can bypass the core. Find the hoses to the heater core. Remove them from the core ... as a worst case scenario, cut them. Install a double male hose connector with clamps on the hose ends to complete the bypass fix. . mm
