if you want to fit a new one you need to locate and remove the old one, most of the cars the little radiator is located in the rear of the heather control, is a medium difficult job to get that done but you don't need a big brain to do it. if you don't want to fit a new one you only need to find 2 hoses in front of the engine compartment { in the lower part of the engine} you see 2 hoses leading to the inside of the vehicle, you must remove the 2 hoses and connect a little piece of pipe to une the 2 hoses. be carefull do not block the hoses, the water need to circulate trougth the hose to the block of the engine.!! if one of the hoses is big enought you can take the short one out and fit the other end of the long one in where's the short one been . is like make an U with the hose. the problem is the heater now doen's have hot air for winter, but you can do that in summer because you never use that in summer. and no more leaks in the passenger floorboard... I hope this may help u. and a hope u understand what im saying is because my English is no very good. cheeeerrrrssss. bye.

AnswerI bought a 92 firebird that also leaked fluid onto the passenger floor board. I had to replace the heater core and that took care of the problem. Just buy a repair manual that will walk you thru the steps and put aside a whole day to get the job done. Now mine is fine. Good luck..
