95 YJ replace heater core, need help

I have both the Haynes manual and Chilton manual but neither seems to make replacing a heater core simple, just remove the two bolts on the fire wall and to will all open up. The reality is there are no bolts in the firewall for that purpose. I got frustrated enough, I took it over to the Jeep dealer and he said $1100 please, it's an "all day job". I'm retired and this is my toy, so I have the time and I already have the core and seal, but I don't have the knowledge. The Jeep dealer said you must take the whole dash off, that's what costs. ( 95 YJ ) jeepman225@comcast.net or the forum.

Took about 2 hrs but I did it last winter. You have to remove the bolts stated in the manual and it helps to have two people because you have to wiggle the studs that the nuts on the engine side hold through that holes bc of the threads. Google may present a better write up somewhere with a search.

YJ heater core replacement 1995

Thanks for your reply to getting the heater unit out but the problem is there are NO nuts to unbolt. The Jeep dealer said this was a 10 hour job

there are three or four nuts on the fire wall, one behind the valve cove and you also have to remove the battery tray. about a two hour job if you do not have a/c.... no need to remove the dash!

So Bill, how did the job go? I'm about to tackle the same job on my 94 before it gets cold.

Good link, I did my 92 with a/c and it was a pain but well worth the hassle. Remove the nuts on the firewall, I didn't remove the battery, I got it from underneath. Remove all the cables inside and start wiggling. It will come out and goes back in easier.
