    Default Leaking Heater Core

    So I got a call the other night from my mother complaining about coolant all over her floor boards. I know the heater core needs to be replaced, but I need some help getting to it. I am more than handy with working on cars. I've swapped out my fair share of trannies, motors, tuned my fair share of track cars as well. I've just never ripped apart the interior of an Equinox. Does anyone have an online repair manual or steps to ripping the dash out of this thing? The last thing I want to do is break stupid plastic clips and have the interior rattling when she drives the car.

    I hope not.. Good luck if it does. It's a pia.........

    Here are a couple links that might help. It will take you to a library, but there has been talk that some people can't get in and they also change the link and/or password sometimes.

    go to
    click on the chilton logo
    type "nwls" for the password
    click proceed

    If that one doesn't work, try this one.
