The biggest problem I ran into was getting the heater hoses off at the firewall. I am pretty sure they have never been disconnected. I ended up cutting the three hoses so I could work a small screwdriver in to break them loose.


Are the heater hoses held on with hose clamps?

If so, trick for next time:
Remove clamps, put a towel under the hose, microwave a cup of water till boiling, pour slowly over hose to soften. Grab hose with gloves and twist it off.

There are special hose tools instead of screwdrivers
