my 1999 durango heater core is on its way out .i as well am trying to get info on it. so far i under stand you must evacuate he a/c and disconect / deactivate the air bags.itsa 5+ hour job . the part ive found for 135.00 the dealer want 600.00 to install ouch i dont think so. i need to know how to take the dash out?

im not sure where u got yer heater core at but i picked one up at autozone for less then 50 dollars

also on autozone site they tell u how to take the dash and core housing out.its about a 6 hour job for a professional

Its a heck of a job, I saw online that it is at least a 2 day job, and I would allow at least that many days. Its very rough, you have to remove everything, and take the dash completely out, drop the steering wheel. There was many, many screws that had to come off, just for the dash and alot of connectors. The intrument cluster was kind of a breeze, but be carefull of the gear indicator, don't break that cable. It took me one day just to get to the heater core, then the next to get everything back together. One thing, they say to take the whole box out you have to evac the a/c unit, I didn't take the whole box out, I cut the top in half, and removed just what I needed, it worked way better, I didn't want to mess with the a/c. Its very tricky, some of the screws are underneath the box, upside down, and very tricky and hard to find, but if you actually like doing that kind if stuff and like a challenge, it is all of that and more. The dash is kind of heavy, so you might have someone around to help. Where I live, it was a 8 hour job, $1,100 and I think that was just labor, and yea the mopar part was $135. Its all labor, once you get to the heater core, take about 1/2 hour to change.
