Re: Heater core blow up on 97 blazer, how to remove dashboard
Hello is this the correct procedure for a 1997 blazer heater core change.
What are snap on vent
ยท first remove speaker panels top of dash, then remove screws underneath.
ยท remove snap on vent on top of dash remove those screws also.
ยท take off all plastic covers at floor under dash.
ยท there are two bolts one on each side under sides of dash, remove them.
ยท now the steering column bolts are I think 5/8 you will have to remove these there are two of these.
ยท now when you take these off the dash will lower.
ยท under the R/S and L/S of dash you will see where the dash sits on hangers lift off both sides
ยท and you should be able to get to the heater core cover,
ยท remove cover and you will see core, there will be two core holder clips over the core.
ยท remove these, make sure hoses under hood are off heater core pipes or the core cannot pull out.
