Iíve got a í92
GMC
Vandura van with a leaky heater core. From what Iíve read on the web I will need to remove the dash or at least loosen it enough to angle it away so I can get access to the heater box. Sounds like a real pain but doable. It has air conditioning so I assume I will have to have the air conditioner coolant evacuated.

Iíve seen two references on the web that state that cutting the dash along a false seam on the passenger side will greatly speed up the repair. Has anyone done this? If you have removed the dash the official way could you speculate that making this cut would work? As old as it is Iím no too concerned about cosmetics at this point. Thanks!
