Demonstrated on a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.7L V6 4WD.
In this video, we demonstrate the process of removing everything that
covers the HVAC airbox on a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which essentially
involves having to strip the dash down to the firewall.
Essentially, this video differs from our previous videos in that in this
case we show a job that isn't really safe to attempt by most DIYers and
should be taken to a professional, and we show why it's best left to the
Removing the entire dash of a vehicle is an intensive process that should
not be attempted without extensive expertise and a comprehensive set of
tols, including AC recovery equipment and specialized tooling as necessary.
This process requires the disabling and disassembly of critical safety
systems such as airbags. AC work often requires certification - in the
United States, the Clean Air Act's section 609 mandates certification for
working with automotive AC refrigerant. Since this is a task best left to
professionals, only an overview of the process is shown without getting

About the "Fix It Right!" video series:
"Fix It Right!" is a series of how-to videos intended to give
do-it-yourselfers basic instructions on proper vehicle repair and
maintenance. All of our videos show real repairs being performed on real
vehicles by real technicians in a real auto shop. (Repairs are filmed and
shown with the permission of the vehicles' owners.) Although there may be
more than one way to perform any particular repair (and in many cases there
are lots of ways!) we try to focus on the methods that will be safest and
most expedient for DIYers with limited access to tooling and equipment.
We will also occasionally be showing repair processes that are too complex
or dangerous for DIY, or require specialized tooling, expertise, equipment,
and/or certifications. Those episodes will highlight the importance of
hiring a professional auto technician for tasks that are not DIY-friendly,
and demonstrate why such tasks are best left to professionals.

How To Unclog a Heater Core - EricTheCarGuy
Heater problems in the winter suck. But with a little diagnosis you can
usually figure out the problem. Heater cores can get clogged from time to
time and this video presents a solution to that problem should you have it.
BTW, the product used in the video was CLR. If you KNOW you have a clogged
heater core this procedure is a good thing to try to help fix the problem.
However, if you are having heating problems I would suggest you check for
air in the cooling system first before performing this procedure. The #1
cause of heating problems is actually air in the cooling system. More
