    I am having a great deal of trouble getting off the lines to the heater core. They have some sort of hydraulic style line with a plastic clip that doesnt come off the way it looks like it does (if that makes any sense). If I knew how they worked it would deffinetly aid me.
    I got one off but was unsure how I did it.

    this is definatly a pita!

    I am pissed off that I have to drain out the a\c to replace it but i guess its better than having no heat in the winter and overheating.

    I am desperatley in need of some help!

    looks like this isnt the most popular subject i guess everyone is old school. I dont blame you this newer stuff is designed to give anyone a hard time.

    Just saw your post - had to do the same on mine this past summer to replace the A/C condensor. I couldn't get the fittings to release, too many years of salt hitting them. I cut them, and used a combinaton of brass compression fittings and heater hose to hook it back up. But yeah, it is a pain in the ass. My A/C lines were the same story - had to cut and piece it back together.
