On the subject of atmosphere and r134-a, it was said on here that it's the same stuff in the cans of "compressed air in a can" used by people who clean electronics.

I replaced the heater core in my 01 TJ. I used ratchet straps to lift the dash enough to get the heat box out. While I was doing all that I replaced my entire cooling system. I ordered all my parts heater core, foam gaskets for the heater box, heater hoses, water pump, thermostat, radiator, and condenser for the AC from Parts Geek. Got an AC buddy to take care of the AC part of it. It took a good 8 hours to get it done with several 12 oz curls throughout the process. None of it was hard but it was time consuming but it was awesome having heat again without having antifreeze leaking on the floor.

Your missing the point!

1_long_cj: I was reading your post "...The OP said he only had two nuts holding the top of the dash. I had all four. In fact the middle two hold a metal bar which holds up the rear of the stock radio..." and it jogged my memory. My son had an aftermarket stereo installed, and that must be where the other two nuts went....the installer just never replaced them!

Almost 4 years later, the heater core sprung a leak, so we'll be doing this again soon. And when it rains, the Jeep is leaking around the passenger door. We tried adjusting it and putting a new weather seal around it, building up the gap with RTV and then putting plastic wrap over it and closing the door...every trick we could come up with basically. Finally pulled the plugs out of the floor so at least it won't fill up with water. I have a 2005 and and a 1994 as well. They both leak also.
