remove;steering coulumn,instrament cluster.dash,and heater -a/c box also drain coolant and freon it takes a PRO ABOUT 8 HOURS!!!! I just replaced my heater core in my 1995 ford escort. You have to take the dash completely out of the car, unhook your negative battery cable, then unhook the hoses on the back firewall, there will be 2 about right in the center of the firewall, they are hooked to your heater core. While you are under the hood, unclip the speedometer cable(needs to be done to get the cluster panel out.) You have to drop your steering wheel before you can get the cluster panel out, take out the cluster panel, radio, heater controls, glove box. The core is IN the plastic housing, so the housing has to come out to change it. Lots of screws and wires to keep track of, so make sure you remember where everything goes. Took me quite awhile, but saved me about $500.00 to do it myself. Denise

The dash must be completely removed in order to gain access to the heater box. Then the heater hoses are disconnected and the heater box is removed and opened up. That gains access to the heater core for relacement.

The heater valve is located inside the heater box.

On my '93 ford escort 1.9L, it is located under the dash, behind the heater control assembly.

There is no heater control valve fitted on a Ford Escort. The heater matrix is directly connected to the engine's cooling system. To reach the heater matrix, you should remove all the facia unfortunately... :(

Install block heater in lower rad hose .

No , if you were to bypass the heater core , you would have no heat

It is located directly behind the center of the dash. You have to remove the whole dash completely out of the car to gain access to the heater box and replace the core.

The heater hose on a 1997 Ford Escort has got both the length and radius. The length is 417 millimeters while the radius is 50 millimeters.

The 1995 Ford Escort series of vehicles have a conventional heater core design and location. The heater hoses through the firewall are on the right-front (passenger) side of the vehicle.?รฆ

It sounds like you have a bad heater core. I would recommend replacing it.

It is under the dash on the drivers side.

To replace the heater core of a Ford Escort, all years, the dash has to come out. This is a job even the most veteran mechanics will cringe at. Take it somewhere to get it done.

On my 1994 escort someone told me it was the heater core was cracked. I did not want to go through the trouble of changing it so I just connected the two hoses from the engine fire wall , bypassing the heater core. Then the puddles of antifreeze stopped soaking up the floor mats.
