iT IS ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS TO DO. i THINK THE BOOK CALLS FOR 3 TO 4 HOURS. IF YOU HAVENT DONE IT BEFORE IT'LL TAKE AT LEAST THAT LONG. gOOD LUCK

In most cases you have to pull the dashboard out, and it is not easy.

you have to take apart literally the entire dash to get the retainers out. then continue on past your computer (complete pain). From there...disconnect pre-existing hoses, pull the core, replace, then assemble the exact same way you dissassembled...otherwise you are screwed...yw

I changed it on my 99 in about an hour, just take the 7 screws out of the bottom of the heater box, and remember the order you removed parts, not a big deal

I changed mine on my 96 c3500 in 35 minutes there was 6 or 7 screws and then ya take the cover off and bam there it is no dash to remove or anything mine was right under the dash in plain view with that cover on it. EASY mosy easy core ive ever done

Full size truck? not hard. S10- book time is about 10 hours. Good luck.

The hardest thing you can do? i just did this this evening and it took thirty minutes. was not hard at all, my opinion any beginner can complete this task on this truck in under an hour. Not sure were this book gets its info!
