I have the dash pretty much out. I have loosened the the bolts that hold the heater box in. I can get the 2 rear bolts off the that opens the box,but I cant get to the front 2 under the cowl.

But it seems like the a/c piping coming out of the heater box inside the engine bay is holding the box in place .I cant pull it out.

Is there a way AROUND discharging the a/c to get the core out ? Can I discharge it myself ?


Its a 97GT by the way.

I do have the manual,but they tell you to take it to a dealer. But my whole dash is out,so that not a option .

I might take a Dremel tool ,and cut the box ,then use RTV to seal it.

Trust me,I almost called a towtruck,lmao.

But Im in it to win it now. Im almost there now . The dealer wanted $200 to empty and refill the a/c .To hell with that. Then they wanted another $400-500 for the core replacement .

Hell,I can buy heads,cams or get my forged short block with that money . Instead ,I spent $100 on the core,and doing it myself.
