My sister's 2001 Escort (base model) requires heater core replacement due to
a leak. Was hoping to garner from practical experience what may be involved
in this R&R. I've searched the web but have been unable to locate any
details regarding this era/model. Any advice, insight, and url's greatly
This group was ever so helpful in the advice and url pointers given when I
last posted requesting info on replacing a core in my Mom's 86 T-Bird. I was
actually able to perform the R&R in 3 1/2 hours! That while doing the job
"properly". That might have been profitable even using warranty times. LOL
Yeah, I pretty much figured that as my luck is not the greatest. ;-)
Any pointers that can be offered by anyone would be of great help. Things
like locations of fasteners (mainly hard to locate or blind), tips, tricks,
and the like would be much appreciated. No hacks though please.
Very belated but I would like to offer a BIG Thank You for the pointer to
the e-shop manuals. Although it's been done now for months I would like to
advise it only took about 3hrs 15min to complete the R&R properly (in 35-40
degree weather). Much easier when one has an idea as to what there getting
Btw, I did the right thing and coughed up a couple greenbacks for two of the
disks...hope everyone does the same as their efforts are well worth it.
