Pretty sure that the whole heater core will need to be replaced if I'm not mistaken.

No, that's just the flange, and it can be replaced independently of the heater core itself. Very common failure item, and from what I've been told, it's pretty easy to replace. It is part number 64111469180.

yup...ya remove the stuff attatched to it, and don't break anything in the process...


iirc, i removed the cowling to get at it. there are the heater valve hoses that attatch, and the rubber weather pak that come off, and a few 'o-rings behind it.

i would suggest getting them as well if you order a new flange.

you'll also need a 10mm socket to take the nut off, but you won't need to remove the specialty bolt. that's also keeping the heater pipes connected with an intermediate component as well.

new clamps would also be a good idea.

i think the worst part of the job was getting the heater hoses off the flange without ripping them.
