hi
i am looking for some info on removal of the heater core in a 1995 olds 88. i found some info on autozones website, but not sure about it. is there dash removal to be done on this car, or can it be done by some access panels. i have no GM knowledge, or shop books. i am trying to help a friend fix their car. i have done heater core removal before but not a GM car. thank you for any help or advice.
i have heard some GM cars are easy to do.
thank you again to anyone for any answers
