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.

Hi Do you mean heater coil, or heater CORE? Im am going to try one tomorrow or the next day. By the manual it does not seem too bad, but you may need a special tool to disconnect the heater hose from the core.
