1980-86 With Air Conditioning

Do not discharge the air conditioning system.

Disconnect the heater hoses from the heater core tubes and plug the hoses with suitable 5 / 8 inch; (16mm) plugs.
Remove the glove compartment liner.
Remove eight (8) screws attaching the heater core cover to the plenum and remove the cover.
Remove the heater core from the plenum taking care not to spill coolant from the core.
