oh man i remember doing that! you have to take off the whole dash to do it right i think. if you dont, when you try to put the new one in you will bend all the fins and it will leak anyways...

If it's just plugged up try using some acid cleaner stuff first!

Did one in my 97 Blazer. It sucked big time. You do have to take out the whole dash. At least for the 95 to 05 style. If you need some tips check out www.automotiveforums.com (http://www.automotiveforums.com) go to the blazer form and search it. The blazers and pick ups I do belive are pretty much the same dash. I use that site alot as the POS was always broken. It was so bad I sold it then went and bought a Dodge :eek:


Good luck
:D

Done many dash swaps (becuase of ICBC claims)and heater cores over the years it aint bad I can do it in under six hours.
