Thumbs down

I have no idea if this will work on all years but I believe they should be about the same.

Watch and discuss please as I'm gonna be trying this in the coming weeks to see if it applies to a 2000.

Thanks for the link That'll work exactly as he shows for any Taurus/Sable from 2000-2007.

This should be in Maintenance and Repair, though.

Here's a working embed:

WORKED LIKE A CHAMP. I had shoulder surgery on my left shoulder last week and I did the entire project with a winged arm. The only thing I did not do was to attempt to pull out the dash because I was affraid to pull on it. I waited till my grandson (17) got home from school and he helped me. NO PROBLEMO DUDE? Took the old one out and installed the new one. \

HINT: Two people to put back in place. One slides the core fwd slowly while the other makes sure the two tubes go into the rubber elbows in the engine compartment. Makes it much easier.

HINT 2: The core went in part way and then would not go any further. I went to the front and stuck my finger through the hole and found the end of the core nipple and it was ever so slightly hitting a cardboard? piece on the passenger side of the firewall. I moved it slightly and it was free. Then I went back inside and it slipped in the rest of the way.

Outsitanding instructions as given and used.

THANKS GUYS!

Yeah Ford does manure like that, all the time. Similar situation on the Ranger as well. Having have worked there, I know that there are a lot of things they do that the public and government would cringe if they knew what I know. It was just like a soap opera there at Ford. I used to call it 'as the bolt turns' miss a lot of my friends there though

This is almost identical to changing a G3 heater core. Super easy and major time saver. The bracket cutting step is the only exception. I didn't cut mine, don't recall if it was even there.
On a console equipped car, you need to remove a portion of the console where it connects to the dash.

You worked at Ford?

I like this heater core trick. Too bad you can't use it for the Evap core too...

Yeah

I am fixing to meet with some people that still work there tonight. I guess on the news last night, there was another mention of closing the plant in St. Paul. They build rangers and mazda pick ups there. I am definitely new and green when it comes to dealing with A/C issues. When I needed to know things, I'd go over to repair in 201 and rap with the guys there. Those guys know EVERYTHING there is ever anything to know or look for. They see new trucks not start, Ect. I'm getting back to work now in the financial/insurance side now, pretty soon I will be able to buy the right tools for the job. Yeah it sucked because when they first laid off a whole shift, and threatened to close the plant in 2007, there were a lot of people that got to get that 'buyout' they offered and then still continued to work there for a little less than what they used to get paid and got to keep the benefits. I was hurt @ Ford in 2004, so they pushed me out the door. I wasn't given the option to continue to work there. That's life in corporate America...
