Heater Core Replacement on 2000 F150
I have a 2000 F150 5.4L extended cab that has been really good to me over the past 10 years, however, I started smelling something strange when I turned on the air conditioner this morning. I took it in to three places to get it fixed and each place said it was the heater core and it needed replacing. Price: lowest $950 and highest $1275. Is there a manual that will show me step-by-step how to do it myself? I'm retired and don't mind doing it myself, but the way the mechanics make it sound you need an automotive engineering degree to remove the dash and get to the core. I'm pretty hand with tools, but in this case I need a little better instruction besides, "Take out the dash and you can replace the core!"
