Take out your glove compartment, there should be a cover up under with cable(s) runing to it. the core should be under this. take cover off, remove heater hoses from under the hood where they attach at the firewall. The core should be able to wiggle out from under dash.

Disconnect the heater hose off the heater core on the firewall and remove the inside middle side panels along with the lower heater core panel and pull the core straight out.........

The heater core can be found behind the passenger side kick plate. Remove the water supply hoses from your 1996 Chevy Impala heater core. Remove the heater core retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new heater core.

AnswerI just had to replace the heater core in my 96 ranger. In the end i basically removed the entire dash to get it out and if there had been an easier way i would have stumbled onto it then. if mine ever goes again.... off to the shop it goes Answer1995 and later models are done in this order, disconnect the negative battery cable, remove the instrument panel, remove the evaporator core housing, drain the radiator, disconnect the heater hoses, remove the nuts and the plenum chamber, remove the screws and remove the heater core cover, remove the heater core. Installation is reverse of removal. Sounds easy but it can be a lot of work but it is a lot easy than pulling your entire dash. Don't forget to reservice your radiator fluid and have your air conditioner reserviced. You'll save a lot of money following these procedures. Good Luck!

Check the heater core, it is probably bad. It could be heater hose connections to the heater core, but I would bet on the heater core going bad.

The only access to the heater core on a 96 S10 blazer is by removing the entire dash asm. It is not accessible from the engine compartment. If you are not familiar with disabling the the air bag system, do not attempt this repair.

The dash must be completely removed in order to gain access to the heater box. Then the heater hoses are disconnected and the heater box is removed and opened up. That gains access to the heater core for relacement.

You don't. It's a major process, you have to remove the entire dash including the steering wheel, center counsel, air bags. everything. To remove the heater hoses from the fire wall are a headache. And to find a Heater Core is a another chore. I replaced the heater core in my 96 Eclipse. I took me 2 month's to find a heater core, the local parts stores could not get one in a timley matter. I had to order it from a dealer in New Jersey. I live in New Mexico. You sell the car and take a loss if you need to. The whole process takes about 2 full days.
