Chevy Silverado
Heater Cores and Blower Fans

On your 2002 Chevy 1500 Silverado the heater hose broke off from the core with the nipple from the heater core still inside Can that nipple be replaced or must you change the entire heater core?

If you take the heater core out of your truck and take it down to a Radiator Shop they should be able braise the old nipple back into place. Have them check it over when they are done. If your old heater core is in bad shape you're better off to know about it now, rather than after you go to the trouble of reinstalling it, only to have it go in another 250 miles. After all there is a reason why it broke in the first place... the metal may be getting fatigued due to age. Mew ones aren't that too terribly expensive. Good Luck, Jim.

In order to probably repair the heater core in your 2000 New Beetle, you will probably have to get the entire heater core replaced.

The heater blower for a 2002 Chevy Silverado is mounted under the dash. It is on the passenger side, in the heater housing.

the heater core is accessed from under the hood it is a nasty time consuming task. lift the hood and see the heater assembly against firewall. remove all that to get at the heater core

The heater inlet hose is on the firewall. On the 2002 Silverado it is close to the bottom of the firewall on the passenger side.

If your heater core wasn't leaking at the time your radiator was replaced , then ( no ) That would be two separate jobs

The most likely reason that the heater control won't change the air flow is that the cable that moves the diverter valve has broken and will need to be replaced.

Unfortunately, there is no "easy" way to change the heater core. The entire dash board has to come out. then it's easy. Then you have to put the dash back in. Sorry :(

take out the heater core then put the new one the same way you took out the old one.... Good Luck!

Replacement of the heater core on a 1993 Mazda Protege is going to first require the removal of the entire dashboard. Once that is removed then the heater control box will need to be removed and disassembled in order to get access to the heater core inside.

if it's because your heater only works on high the relay you would need to change would be in the back of the glove box

I assume you mean the heater core? there are about 6 screws in the bottom of the heater inside the cab on the passenger side, remove the hoses from the engine compartment take the panel off of the bottom, be careful with the foam rubber on the panel, and it just pulls thru the firewall
