Very awkward and messy. Start by removing the panel under the dash on the passenger side. You will need a regular Phillips screwdriver and a snubby 2-3" Phillips later. Also get a 1/4" socket set. First thing, go under the car and remove the heater hoses from the firewall and twist out the drin spiggot. Then go back inside the car. The heater core sits under the radio. Under the core is a tray used to catch the leaking antifreeze and drain it out the firewall. You need to remove this tray. It has 6-8 screws holding it. Once the screws are out it is tricking removing it with the center console in, but it can be done-twist and bend. Then remove the screws holding the core in place and pull out the heater core. One note on the replacement-got mine from Oreilly's for $20-the two lines coming out of the heater core swivel to line up with the holes through the firewall. If you don't swivel them it will never seem to fit. Then reverse the above order, fill up the fluid, bleed the air off and away you go. Took me about 3 hours total in a parking lot. Ruined a shirt, but got it done. You will also cuss being upside down under the dash.

How do you install a block heater in a 2009 Chevy Trail Blazer?

To normally install a block heater you must remove an expanstion/ freeze plug in tighten in the block heater. The 6 cylinder 4.2L engine unfortunately does not appear to have any such plugs. The V8 engine should have a screw in style block heater installed in the left front of the engine block just below the cylinder head.

How do you replace the block heater cord on a 1990 Mercury Topaz?

If its just the cord, then follow the old cord to the back side of the engine ( really the side of the engine closest to the firewall ) and replace it. When the engine is cold, plug it in and you will hear the block heater heating up. If you don't hear anything, then replace the heater also. That requires a little more knowledge.
