How to replace Heater core on Chevrolet HHR?

The details to replace heater core on Chevy HHR car models.

The Procedure with complete details and Diagrams.,

Removal & Installation Of Heater core is as follows:-----


CAUTION
With a pressurized cooling system, the coolant temperature in the radiator can be considerably higher than the boiling point of the solution at atmospheric pressure. Removal of the surge tank cap, while the cooling system is hot and under high pressure, causes the solution to boil instantaneously with explosive force. This will cause the solution to spew out over the engine, the fenders, and the person removing the cap. Serious bodily injury may result.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Raise and support the vehicle.
  4. Place a drain pan under the water pump drain port.
