We got up early so it was still cool in the garage when we started working on the engine bay. We planned to remove as much as we could from the engine bay today.

The A/C Line Running from the Evaporator to the Condenser was removed with the Evaporator and Accumulator Assembly. Now the Heater Core on the inside of the car is visible through the opening on the firewall.


In order to remove the Heater Core and Box from the inside, these two hoses (red and black) need to be disconnected.


Red hose disconnected. Still need to disconnect the black hose.


Heater Core and Box Removed. I just need to disconnect the Vacuum Lines.

No rust behind the Heater Box!

The connection on the end of this hose is actually busted off. I believe it is for the Crankcase Depression Regulator. But isn't this supposed to be a pipe?
