heater core removal

hey guys i just noticed my heater core leaving a puddle on my driver side floor pan on my 81 cj7 yesterday, the only way to change it is to take out the heater box right. Any one have instructions on how to remove it, thanks....Cody

on my yj it was pretty simple, unbolt it from the firewall made sure the hoses were discontented then pull it out and take it apart. it cant be too different from the yj,
let me check my chiltons. it covers cj-5 cj - cj7 cj8 and wrangler 1971-90

I found it easier to remove/install my heater box with the pasenger seat out. Just my 2 cents

There are a lot of great threads on JF on this. Here's one I referred to by Ken4444.

When I did mine I was also replacing the seals on the dana300 and t5 so I had the skid plate removed. This of course dropped the back of the engine and made the last nut of the heater box a PITA to remove since it's righgt behind the valve cover! Lesson learned.
