Hehe

It's under the dash.

Right in the center.

You have to remove the ENTIRE dash to get it out.

Any gaskets or clamps or anything you think i will need? I'm going to be pissed after i remove the ENTIRE dash that sucks ass.

I replaced mine by removing the A/C and fan boxes and sliding the heater core
box out the side. I think to pull it out the front you would have to remove all the
metal side pieces and the metal tube behind the dashpad. Pulling the AC and fan
boxes was a pain, it might be easier to take the dash apart. Also the heater pipes
are in two pieces (the pieces going thru firewall are seperate from pipes going to
heater core and are joined together with rubber grommets. I could not buy the
pipes that went thru the firewall or the grommets, evidently they are only sold
with the entire heater box at $1000 discount :( )
