Tedious job, can take a while if you haven't done it before. Need access to nuts on the firewall in the engine bay.

Hi, sorry to steal this thread, but I am in the middle of replacing my heater core, and I need to ask a question, but it is going to need a picture.

I have no idea how to post a picture on these pages. :oops:

Could someone please tell me, in baby steps, how to do it???

Cheers

Hello I have a ford ba 2004 and when I turn the heater on it blows cold air I have been told the air mix shaft (heater shaft) has snapped I havethe part but have no idea how to replace it and labour would cost 800 to put a 70 dollar part in just wondering
If anyone is familiar with taking the dash out and could possibly do it I have 2 kids and being this weather need it fixed if anyone sround the melbourne area could do this I would be very grateful
