You need to remove the whole dash assembely out of the vehicle. I know it sounds like alot of work. But this job can be done in one day with just simple hand tools. Remove The dash trim pieces around radio and under dash. Unbold steering wheel support brackets and let steering wheel rest on floor. unbolt dash unit from Metal structure. roll dash back onto both front seats and let sit. Remove Evap an heater core boxes as one unit remembering to loosen heater core hoses from outside under hood from box before removal. remove heater core box from evap box.reverse procedure for installation of new one

How do you install a heater core in a 99 Kia Sportage?

If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core. When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired. Heater Housing * The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core. * Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of the car It therefore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement. The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core. Heater Core * Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core. * Remove the heater coolant hoses. * Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped). * Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps. * Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing. * To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps. When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation. I have included a picture diagram above. Good luck.

How do you replace 95 Kia Sephia heater core?

....Well... as I have just found have to pull apart the whole dash... unscrew the steering wheel from the frame... take out the frame underneath the dash.... and then unscrew the heater side of the heater/ A/C unit. Then it comes out pretty easily. I just did it and it took me about an hour. The problem I have now is that I need to find a heater core... which has been a problem. I'm hoping that I can find one at the junk yard that will fit in my car...... and isn't damaged. I hope that helped.
