Guess I need to get it pulled out. Looks like a bit to much for my 80 year old self. Looks like the easiest way is to take out the head light and go in through there. Thanks everyone


If you think $276 was high for the heater core wait till you get the bill for labor to replace it !!!

Mountain Air I saw that before. BUT it looks like they have the gen pushed in and I had it out--I'll take another look.
Labor I don't worry about, those guys got to eat to. I am sure some of the people that paid me, a person that never finished high school, thought I charged a lot of money but fact was I could do the work and there were few that could or would. So now its my turn to not be able to do the work so I don't mind paying.

The RV in those pics is different than mine as it looks like the gen cover lifts up and mine comes out with the gen. But it looks like only 6 bolts to remove the cover. I will try it, stay tuned.

OK, 2 hours into this project and the rain came. I removed the panel in front of the gen and pushed the gen back as far as it would go. Lots more working room. I then removed the pass side headlight assembly, 4 screws and unplug it. Better access, Not sure on the bolt deal but it appears to only have 4 but since there are 4 smaller ones it may have 8. I have 3 of them out and the housing still don't want to move..... will get back to it as I don't think rain will last long.

3 more hours and it is out. 5 total. Pretty straight forward but with little more than the Irv pictures it took me awhile because I didn't want to break or mess up anything. That sucker was stuck even after all the bolts were out....there are only 4 as the other 4, which I also removed, hold the metal piece on the back on. Now to order a new one.

Got the original part from Comfort Air in Michigan for $197 about $80 less than the other place. Will chime back in when I get the part in hand sometime this week. Hope those following can find this post as it now seems to be hidden

Went to work on this thing about 9AM and 6 hours later it was all done. There is some questionable stuff about the original installation but I got through it all and it works. So a total of 11 hours and $200 for the heater core so even at 80 years old you can take on a project like this.
