So I plan on changing out my old rear heater core with a new one from VC. It says it comes with a bleeder screw and o-ring.

Some questions I have are.

Is the Rear Seat Heater Core Bleeder Valve the same as the bleeder screw?
Should I replace the Rear Seat Heater Core Control Valve and Heater Core Hose Tee as well?

I will be replacing the the o-ring between heater core and control valve too.

Thank You!

While you're at it replace the T's that the lines come off of, they will be brittle by now (TK sells them) they are another one of those parts that can stop you in your tracks if they break...btw use the correct one's not the one's that can be bought at the FLAPS, trust me I know!

How many T's do I need to replace? Is the T underneath or inside the car?

How messy is this job? Should I be ready for coolant spilling out?


Thanks to all!!!!

There are two tees underneath and yes you are going to loose some coolant.

The T's are on the passenger side, under the Van, kinda along side the trans--maybe a little behind it.

If you haven't crawled under the Van you aren't gonna see them.
Follow the heater hoses forward from the engine--you'll find them.
