    its a piece of cake,
    remove your glove box door and the box itself and you have access to everything.
    i replaced the heater core on my Blazer in about 45min start to finish

    Thanks for the help! I thought it would be a pretty easy swap out.

    Well im halfway done i have everything outta the truck an put the fender back on so i can go get the new heater core from the auto parts store. :D The Ck5 guide has been very helpful up to this point. Only wished there were more pics. but i got everything out just fine by reading it. :bow: took an hour takin my time an using hand tools. i think that now knowing what exactly to pull i could do it in 30mins an be done in 1 hour.
