Re: Cadillac Cimmeron Heater Core location

Why do you want to get to the heater core?
It seems like you have no heat. This may not be the core, but due to another problem, like a bad thermostat, stuck blender door etc.

Generally heater cores are good until they start leaking from age and corrosion. If the core is not leaking then look for another cause of a 'no-heat' condition before swapping cores.
Finally, if the core is not leaking but you suspect its plugged, it can be reverse-flushed with a garden hose without removing it.

The heater core on your car is located under the hood in the heater box. The labor time guide states that the proper labor time to istall is 2.5 hours.
