so you really HAVE to take the dash out to pull the heater unit?

i do want to pull the whole heater unit out as it has a leak and the blower stopped working so i want to test everything and put back in a good functioning unit. any advise? i've pulled 2 gen 2 dashes and they are a pain in the nutz. tell me this will be so much easier. i did notice that the top bolts are easier to get on than gen 2s.

Well, on some cars you can cut the side off the heater box under the dash and pull the core out the side. Cut carefully, and glue back in place with the new core.
I think that would be a no go on the first gens, since it also contains the heater controls, vents, and blower in an area about the size of a five gallon bucket. It's really easy to pull the dash out of one though, should take less than an hour to tear it all apart.

Ahhh. I guess I somehow missed that this was a 1st gen!
lol, well I don't guess that was actually stated, other than the fact he said it easier to get at than a gen 2, I just assumed since it's in the historic forum.
