    I have used the write up from here on CK5, I am almost there but can't figure out how to pull the core out of the box. It feels like it is still screwed in but there are none left. I don't want to break anything tryin to pry it out. Any ideas or hints. It's almost drk and I want to get it done. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    There are 6 bolts that hold that ring in place to hold the core in, you sure you have them all?

    One of the shafts needs to come out also. Look at it, and you will see one of them runs all the way through.

    Ahhh this brings back memeories. I just did this a few weeks ago. It was the snow storm before Christmas in the NE and I was fighting againts time (snowplow customers were calling). Yes one of the blend door shafts has to come out and the whole box needs to come apart.

    Ohh I see the problem> the blend door has a slot that it will come out of after the retainer rign with the 6 bolts are removed.

    Now looking at that picture it looks like you still have the cable on the blend door. That has to come off. looking at the picture that's the cable at the botom of the picture (top of the box when it's installed.).

    Is this what you guys are talking about? Can I remove that washer that holds the cable and reuse it? Which one needs to be pulled? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif Have pity on me /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif

    IIRC, the left one seperates, the right one slides all the way out. Check, it should run all the way through.

    On the inside, there is something that needs to be disconnected also.

    Getting it to all line up right when reassembling sucks /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
