How do you replace a heater coil?
Cost me $230 to have mine replaced. Had to take it to a shop.
This is not a job for the shade tree boys. each make of vehicle can
be different, sometimes very different. some do require a qualified
mechanic. others are not so bad. the heater CORE is under the dash.
sometimes relatively easily accessible. if you think you can do it.
first, just to be sure you can get to it yourself, remove a few
panels and covers from the underside of the dash. usually the
passenger side, sometimes right in the middle of the car, kinda
behind the radio(hard to explain in any detail because they all
vary, you just have to have a sense of what you need to look for).
the heater core looks like a very small radiator with two pipes
coming off of it. if you think you've found it. with the engine
cool, drain the coolant. remove the two heater hoses (that lead to
the firewall)from under the hood of the car. these are roughly an
inch in diameter and quite close together. remove the heater core
and you get it from here. hope i didn't forget anything.
