This will be my 2nd started post, first was introduction. My heater core started leaking yesterday, so today i decided to bypass the core so if i wanted to still drive the car i could. It is my garage queen, but I still enjoy washing and driving it. I am having some heating issues, i'll start another thread for that.
Big Dave has been a lot of help also, and rather post in another persons thread i'd figure i'd start my own.
Car is a 66 Impala 2 dr with a 327 3spd on the column.
People have started in multiple thread that everything can be accessed from inside the car, so that is where i started.
1. Removed the glove box door by removeing the three screws on the bottom.
2. Remove the glove box inside liner by removing 4 screws (2 on top and 2 on bottom). The liner should just fall out (mine did). I had old crumbling insulation inside that just fell apart when i touched it, so i just threw it all out. It was ugly and messy!
Then i saw the head of 2 bolts on top and 3 on bottom of the "heater box" or whatever you call it. Notice there are no bolts accessible from the inside.
Then i headed to the engine bay, and sure enough there were 7/16" bolts! Only problem is there are only 4 that i can reach. The fifth one is on the bottom closest to the outside of the car. Unfortunately I can't even feel the bolt to try to access it. I measured the distance from inside and it will be nearly impossible to gain access without removing the inner fender liner.
Here is a pic from inside the car...
Any idea on how i can get to this? Or how to remove the inner fender liner? Or am i totally approaching this the wrong way?
Thanks in advance.
