Default 1999 Jeep Cherokee Heater Core Replacement

Well I am having difficulty replacing my heater core as you can see in the pictures. I do not know where to go from here. What do I need to do to remove the air handler?

Default 1999 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 Heater Core Replacement

I have just discovered that there are som nuts that need to be removed which are located in the engine compartment. One is going to be difficult due to its location just behind the engine on its left side.

As you can see in the second photo even though they hold a component for the AC they need to be removed.

Default Perfect

That was perfect. To have the MRM for my vehicle is a great help. It is more detailed than any of the cheaper after market manuals.

Thanks again.

Smile Heater core

The console between the passenger and drive does need to be removed in order to get the air conditioning unit out. Also remove the braket on the hump holding the dash. If you leave it in it will make it more difficult and you will just have to remove it in the end. This was an experience but now there is no more antifreeze smell and foged up windows. Putting it back together was a breeze. Now on to recharging the AC unit.

Good job. If you took more pics you should consider doing a full write up.

Default Thank you for this thread

I am getting ready to tear into my dashboard in the morning so I can change my heater core. I am already glad that I checked here first. I don't work on automobiles very often, so the tips I read here are going to be very handy. Keep 'em coming!
