97 s10 heater core

just finish the job, it simple.took just over a hour.

The dash has to come out, but only seven bolts.

take out seat, drop steering column to floor, disconnect emeregy brake cable. the dash will hinge forward. disconnect four wires, one vaccum. and its out. radio, speakers, speedometer , a/c controls all come out with the dash as one unit. it is simple. just follow the haynes book. took me about twenty minute to get to core.

a 15 years old could do it.

7mm nutdriver, 10 mm, 15 mm socket. seat take 14 mm thats all. and a torx bit

Re: 97 s10 heater core

I did this same thing about a year ago. Unfortunately I had to do it while 465 miles from home. Mine let go during a Christmas vacation road trip and emptied into the passenger floor pan. Repair shops wanted 4+ hours of labor to do it for me, so I took it upon myself.

Out of curiosity, why did you have to take the seat out. I certainly didn't do it. I was at about 65K miles on my vehicle. You were at..........?

I took the seat out due to it being a bench and I thought the core would come out under the dash, just for room. but it help so the steering column could lay on the floor
