    Its just a pita. On my truck, I removed the inner fender thinking there was another bolt, but it turned out, I could get to all of em without taking it out.....So check before you go through the hassle of removing it.


    EDIT: Forgot to say mine was an AC truck

    Is it a heater-only truck or does it also have a/c? Swapping the heater core on an a/c truck is a pain in the a$$. :mad:
