1994 Ford Escort 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 200000 miles
My 94 Escort was leaking radiator coolant into the driver and passanger side floorboard. I was told that it is the heater core. I took the 2 hoses from under the hood and joined them. The leaking has stopped. I now cannot get the old heater core case out. I took out all the bolts and screws that I could find, getting myself into a mess. I have not removed the steering wheel, or top of the dash. A mechanic friend told me that since my air conditioning tank is empty, to disconnect the 2 hoses from the tank so the blower casing can come out making room to pull the heater core casing out the passenger side, but I cannot get them disconnected. It also seems that the heater core casing is not dropping. Might be a screw I missed, not sure. I am a beginner, but can follow directions. Please help me get my heater core replaced. Also, do I need to take the top of the dash off to expose a hidden screw? I will donate as soon as funds become available.
Does the 95 have same procedures as the 94?
