nope, the heater core and pipes are brass ive had to replace a few in the past...

Thanks for that, you can still damage the internals if you're too rough.
Dunno who's idea it was to use plastic ones on some cars, grand design.



yep,
the copper pipe is pretty soft especially where the pipes are soldered to the core.
ive learnt if you ever need to remove the heater hoses from the firewall, just cut a slit in the hose to remove them, otherwise any excess movement or force on the heater core pipes results in a leaky core..
cheaper to replace heater hoses then a heater core...



yes happened to me in a AU conversion car was never the same again when i had to replace the heatercore / box

VERY easy esp with the age of our vechiles
