Just use some pliers to squeeze the clips and then try to pull the whole clamp back off of the connection. Now try to removed it. Don't flip out because after the hose has been on there for awhile it just about glues itself to the housing. Not to worry because at this point you have a couple of options. If you are replacing the hose, use a utility knife to slice it so you can peel it off. Your next choice is to use a screwdriver to pry the hose off. I guess it could screw something up but I will admit to using this techniques more often than not. Another reason to change the hoses once in awhile. By the way, although everyone seems to think that the auto parts store hose clamps are a "must use", I have reused the factory clips before and never had a problem. Clean the surfaces and smear just a very light coat of Vaseline inside the new hose before you install it and it helps you get it on and makes it easier when you take it off. As my old college Professor taught me "Vaseline will never hurt a rubber product." Sorry to ramble on... vbdenny REMINDER! ANTI-FREEZE IS DEADLY TO PETS AND WILDLIFE. Please be responsible even though nobody will catch you if you are not.

Why the heater or defroster may not work in a 1993 Chevy Caprice Classic because of the heating core is going out.

Drain the water from your 1983 Chevy Caprice Classic cooling system. Remove the heater core water supply hoses. Remove the heater core retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new heater core.

Nowhere, as there is no such thing as a 2002 Chevy Caprice.
