I would like to replace the heater core (matrix) cause it is leaking coolant. For this I have to take out the heater unit behind the dash.

I saw at the service manual that I have to take out the evaporator first.

Does anyone know if I can take the heater core out without taking out completely the evaporator

but only unscrew it and pick it up a little so as to free up the heater unit to come off?

Thanks

Ooh mate going back a while there. I removed my aircon. And used that as an opportunity to remove the evaporator. 

But I do recall having to take the complete dashboard out to remove heater box to get at the matrix. How could I forget it

In that case the evaporator is the least of your worries... You can whip that out by taking the glove box out.

Sorry I didn't reply for so long. 

Ok. I know that I have to remove the complete dashboard. 

I only want to know if I have to completely remove the evaporator, cause this I can not do it myself.

Thanks.

Dont think so. But can't remember fully. Pretty sure the central heater box separated from the duct to the fan.

Thank you guys for the replies.

I will inform about, but in July, because now I don't have much time.

 

Edit:

It can't be done without removing the evaporator. So, I went to evacuate the AC system and then I took it apart.

Hopefully, everything went well.
