Drain the radiator Remove the lower panels under the dash. Go under the hood and remove the hose clamps off the heater core. This will take the most time of the whole project....very little room to work. Under the dash unbolt the heater core (4 1/4"bolts) Pull the core back Have a buddy twist the heater hoses and pull, while you hold the heater core pipes. Have a drain pan handy because antifreeze will rush out into your floormats from the heater core. Once hoses are off pull the old core out. to reinstall is reverse order. Use caution installing heater hoses, because the heater core damages easily....use hand lotion on the inside of the hoses to let them slip on easily.

On a 1982 there are two doors, one in the heater outlet and another behind the glove box. May be the same for 1988.

It's on the firewall up high on the passenger side. You may need to remove the alternator to get it out.

Was there a 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais? I see them listed at 1988-1991. Assuming that you mean "wiper blade" (blade and frame) which are replaced often rather than "wiper arm" (piece from the spindle at the hood to the wiper blade) which are rarely ever replaced, ALL 1988-1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais' have 3/16" Side Lock wiper arm attachments. See Sources and Related Links below.

To replace a 1988 Dakota heater core, first discharge the A/C. Then remove the lower instrument panel before removing the heater box unit.
