My heater core to a crap on me in TX but now im up here in Mass and its getting cold so I need to replace the heater core. I have looked into this a little and it looked like I had to remove the entire dash. Is this true or is it like a hour job to do? any suggestions or pictures would be great.
1991 YJ 2.5L - SOLD
2006 Jeep Commander 6cyl - SOLD
2007 Jeep Unlimited Rubicon 3.8L
Take the dash off nothing.
It's 4 nuts from off the firewall, a few clamps, an electrical plug, a snap clamp, and a handful of screws.
Shouldn't take long at all, it's a one man (2 beer) job.

My heater core went bad about two years ago. I fought the idea of replacing the heater core. I thought it would a PITA to replace.
On my YJ it's four nuts that hold the heater box / mixing box. The hard part for me was disconnection the cable from there brackets.
Other than that it came right. There is a good writeup here on how to. The other thing I found was to make sure the hoses fit and are tight.
