It seems that the heater core on my 83 TQC is leaking. I first noticed a
slight window fogging while running the heater/defroster. I finally shoved
my hand up in front of the center console, and much to my disappointment,
the carpet was wet with coolant. Sooo, has anyone done this work on a
4000/coupe/TQC? Difficulty involved? Tips? Is this a DIY job or better to
let the pros handle it?
I looked over the Bentley manual, all 4 pages or so, which cover the heater.
They show an exploded view of the heater/blower assembly, with the heater
core sliding in from the passenger side. Does the A/C evapoator(?) have to
be removed from the passenger foot well?
BTW, the price on a new heater core is around $63 from a local foreign auto
parts store. Same part is used in a VW wabbit.
