If you're replacing the heatercore or A/C evaporator, I don't think you can split the heaterbox with it in situ, you'll need to take it out as a whole.

Are you running with climate control or just standard heater and air conditioning as I have a complete heaterbox with nearly new A/C evaporator that I took out when I fitted climate control. :D
PM ME if you are interested. :!:

Not really - swapping over the CC components is not too hard - particularly if the heaterbox is out. BDM and vaccy solenoid are straightforward - the hole for the fan speed controller needs to be made bigger - a dremel will make light work of it, but be aware there is a metal plate inside.

Mate you have to remove the complete box from the car. If you split the box it is wise to replace the evaperator & heater core as they are a common
fault, prone to leaking. Good Luck.

alright, i've picked up a second hand heaterbox, the recirc module still works, the flaps seem to be in good cond. the foams fairly s**t so i'm going to replace that.
how much should i pay for heatercore and evaporator, cause i'd hate to get it in and have them both go...

Heap of screws in the back.....

Rear cover lifts off (it's a bit sticky because of some gooey black s**t they use to seal them) and the heater and evap cores lift out.

Put it back together the way you pulled it apart.

Pretty straight forward..........

These might help?
