I remember Tom and Ray (Car Talk) saying that the Taurus is one of the
hardest to replace. Dealers around here get about $1000 for the job.
There must be shortcuts though because the local Radiator Hospital cut
a deal for a friend's daughter for $350 and they had the job done
Instrument panel removal in a Taurus isn't really that hard. (Try a Chrysler
van sometime). One thing I would suggest is to remove the front seats. It only
fwe minutes and gives you lots more room to work. Be careful of the shift
cable. Many folks overlook the indicator and only remember it when they hear it
while removing the column.
The article on page 5 addresses this subject. "Tips from the top –
time-saving on heater core replacement"
