Hello Folks,

Over the summer my heater core blew.
Being this is central FL, I just disconnected the heater hoses and
continued on with life.

Now it is 36F and time to replace it. I have a new one in-hand, and
looking at my heater box(w/AC) there is no removable panel like the
non-AC units show.

I really don't want to tear apart my entire dash to pull the heater box.

I was thinking of Dremeling out a big enough hole to slide the old out.
Then JB Weld the cutout back in.

Any opinions?
