Yea, I'm with the other guy. But there are two other alternatives, one which involves not taking out the dash. I'm assuming your heater core is shot and leaking and that's why you need to change it, so here are your two options: 1. Get a copy of the Haynes repair manual at your local Napa Auto Parts or whatever you have around there, then follow the instructions in the chapter for your heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. It'll take time, but it'll be cheaper than the dealership. The most you'll need is a new core (from anywhere) and maybe some new hosing. 2. Pop open the hood and find the two hoses that connect into the back of the firewall (going to the heater core itself). They'll be near the blower motor. Then go to Napa and get a fitting with two ends on it for that size of hose. Drain the coolant from the system, undo both of the hoses (WITH THE ENGINE COLD!), be sure to catch the antifreeze that falls, and install that fitting you just bought. This'll bypass the heater core effectively eliminating your problem, but also your heat. So if you live in a state like Montana, I'd go with a dealership or option 1. Good luck!

What is causing leaking from passenger floorboard in a 97 jeep grand Cherokee?

If your talking about the leak you get after stopping the car. Then it is caused by your AC unit. This is completely Normal nothing to worry about. If the leak is on the inside then it is your heater core, lots of fun to replace (not). Hope This Helps. Anyone who has a 97 Grand Cherokee knows what kind of leaking the asker is talking about. It is not necessarily the heater core. It is a defect in this SUV. It is your drain that is supposed to run out under your car. It is now leaking into your floorboard. Try taking it and having the drain cleaned out.

Be very careful when you disconnect them, stock heater core had plastic pipes , twisting or bending the hose can break the pipes, then you will have to replace the core.

How do you change the heater core in a 1991 Chevy S10?

Heater corePosition a drain pan under the radiator, open the drain valve and drain the cooling system to a level below the heater core. Disconnect the heater-to-engine coolant hoses from the core tubes on the firewall, in the engine compartment. From the passenger compartment (under the dash) remove the heater core rear case cover-to-cowl screws, then remove the cover from the vehicle. You will be lucky to get it out without taking off the whole dashboard that is what i had to do. Remove the straps or brackets from each end of the heater core. Carefully remove the heater core from the cowl and case. Installation: Insert the heater core into the case, taking care not to damage the tubes as they are inserted through the cowl. Install the straps or brackets to the ends of the heater core and secure using the retaining screws. Install the heater core rear case cover and secure using the retaining screws. If moved for access, reposition and secure the dash mounted cabin light and housing. Connect the heater-to-engine coolant hoses to the core tubes. Connect the negative battery cable, then properly refill the engine cooling system. Run the engine at normal operating temperatures and check for leaks.
