was the airbox cleaned after they installed the core? Antifreeze is sticky nasty foul S*^^T

cleanup is the key, also, does the "NEW" one leak? are the hoses good?

good luck


everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and a professional shop manual should be available at the library in the reference section for FREE...make copies of the right pages and fix your vehicle like a PRO! :)

good luck

Some coils are also coated to prevent corrosion and it is usually a little oily. This could also be what is on the windshield. If it is that, it will stop.

How do you change a heater core in a 1976 Corvette with air conditioning?

1968-1982 Corvette heater cores typically begin leaking due to a breakdown in materials dropping anti-freeze and coolant on your Corvette's carpet. This is not a pretty sight. Removal of the heater core takes place from inside your Corvette. First the RH side lower dash pad must be removed, then access can be gained to the inner heater box. Remove all ductwork (windshield defrost, floor duct, side ducts, etc.). The main inner heater box is supported to the firewall by 4 to 6 studs, these stud plates are riveted to the inner heater box. By removing the nut on the opposite side of the firewall the inner box can be removed from the Corvette. The heater core is mounted with straps inside the inner heater box. Once the inner box is removed from the Corvette, the heater core can be replaced and reassembly can begin. At this time it is also a good idea to replace all the seals in your Corvette's heater & air condition system. Seal kits for 68-77 & 78-82 Corvettes include ductwork seals, inner box seals, heater/ac flapper door seals and firewall mount seals for internal and external heater boxes. Replacing these seals not only improves your Corvette's heater & AC performance, but also eliminates air drafts which are common on all C3 Corvettes. From all of us at

How do you replace the heater core on a 1992 Chevy Corvette L35 V8?

You first have to take the passenger side (bottom) dashboard out. You then remove (approx) 3 bolts from the inside and (approx) 2 nuts from the motor side. The heater core is inside the heater box. When the box comes off, you then remove the heater core from the box - after removing about 6-8 screws. It is more difficult than it sounds.

The heater core is on the passanger side, located behind the bower motor housing on the firewall. If the car doesn't have AC it is not a difficult project. Remove the heater hoses from the firewall and then remove the screws that attach the cover to the firewall. The heater core rests inside.
