    Default Heatercore replacement

    Changing out my heater core today and notice that the clamps on my two heater hoses are upside down. How would I go about changing this? I does not look as if I can get to the from under the truck.

    Remove the wheel, then the inner guard, put a stand under the truck. The battery box stays behind. The guard is flexible, and a bit of maneuvering gets it out. I can see that mine are accessed by this method, it has the guard and engine removed.

    I got it done. I wish I would of done it your way. I ended up removing my intake, coolant tank, and the AC accumalator and bracket off. The I broke the heater core tubes off the heater core. twisted the tubes so the clamps faced upwards. Fought the wiring harness and got the clamps off. My waterpump install was easier.

    That sounds like a nightmare, water pump replacement is not easy.
