boy you sure picked a good one i know this sounds bad but its the easiest way i found first remove your hood followed by your passengerside fender to get to all the bolts you need next remove the heaterr hoses

next unbolt the housing and remove the outside half unfortunately you now have to go inside and remove the glove box and the ductwork from the passengerside as well you should be able to see the heater core by now if it still has the factory heater core it will probably be stuck (i used a small pry bar)after alot of twisting and turning it will com out if yours does like mine did but dont worry to much 'cause the new one slipped right in Good luck man and if it not to much trouble roll'em one time for me

Yes. The firebird and camaro use the same chassis. Use mounts and headers for a camaro, and you'll be all set.

Why would the heater blow hot air all the time on my 79 Corvette?

There is a valve which controls the flow of coolant to the heater core, which is a small radiator located inside the passenger compartment. If this valve is open, hot coolant will be pumped into the heater core, which will get hot and warm the air passing over it. If the lever or temperature selector in your vehicle does not control that valve, then the cable is broken, or the electrical control device is not working.

How do you replace a heater core in a 1979 trans am?

You picked an extremely difficult one.......It would be best to get a Chilton's or Haynes for this. I will tell you that it requires pulling the passenger side fender and inner fender well to gain access to it. Some of the later models....such as your '79 have an impression in the fender well that you can cut and bend down to gain access. When done, you bend it back up and seal it.
