Replacing a heater core isn't the worst job as many people make it out to be. Perhaps the most difficult part is that you have to be a contorsionist as you have to lay on your back on the passenger side floor. Right above where the passenger's feet would go is a panel. Use a nut driver to remove all the hex screws. I believe they are 7/16". Pull the panel off and then there is a black, pan-looking thing also held on by the same size hex screws. Remove all of them and the brace and pull the pan off. Look up there and you will see the heater core bigger than Dallas. You will have to disconnect the leads from under the hood then pull the thing out. I wouldn't even drain the radiator but you need to be careful not to have it leak all over. Put in the new core and rehook everything up. Run the engine up to temeperature with the heater and fan on full. Top off your collant and you are good to go. My difficulty rating on this job is 3 out of 10. Should take you around 2-3 hours at the most. VBdenny

Begin by removing the water supply hoses from your 1989 Chevy heater core. Remove the heater core retaining bolts. The heater core can be removed.

The 1989 Chevy Caprice 305 V8 does not have a carburetor. It is equipped with Throttle Body Fuel Injection which may look like a carburetor but is not.

It will fit but you will have to get a shorter driveshaft. The truck transmissions are longer then a passenger car transmission.

The trunk lock on a 1989 Chevrolet Caprice is replaced by removing the retaining clip and unscrewing the bolts holding it in place. The lock can then be pulled through the opening and a new lock put in place.
