Leaking Heater Core...

My buddy has an 89 suburban with a leaky heater core. My question is, what holds the cover together. We have the glove box out of the way, but I can't see how the cover to the core comes off. I can't see any type of screw or fasteners holding it up there. Any insight would be appreciated.

Re: Leaking Heater Core...

Yeah pretty sure its the core. Truck was involved in an accident, then started leaking. Hoses are correct. It was hit directly against the right front tire. Only damage was the rim and very minor fender damage. TOTALLED the other car!
