I had a 96 Bird that i sold to a buddy of mine and he said the heater core has went out but is not sure how to get to it. I havent looked at it yet so i dont know, he says he cant see how to get to it from underneath the dash. How hard are these to get to, what all has to be done to get it out and put a new one in it. Any help on these would be appreciated, im assuming its close to the same as the 94-95 and 97 birds. Thanks.

Unfortunatley, Ford was dumb about this. You have to remove the dashboard to get to it. I know it sucks. GM had this one right with an access panel to the heater core.

Many years ago I replaced my dashboard. Check out this thread wher I wrote a step by step removal process.
