Heater radiator replacement

Post by johanp » 28 Apr 2015 07:53

Good morning

My Patrol's heater radiator started to leak. I bypassed the pipes in the meantime.
Has anybody replaced one of these?
Do you need to take off the dashboard?
Do you need to take off any of the aircon pipes?

Hi there.
Yes the dash comes out but aircon is safe from regassing if you know how to split the airbox in place.
