Gabby Rodulfo: Do you need to drain the coolant first?
kennybertz Jonny: Thanks man, your video save me over $300.00, with your video i was able to do it myself in less than a hour.Thanksssssss!!!!!
Chris Bourassa: Just did this procedure & FYI, no need to remove the knuckle, that is if you don't mind cutting the steering shaft boot. Cut the boot off, removed 2 bolts on the abs block & moved it up & out of the way. you will bend some fins putting it in, but the important piping is inside, protected. much easier & faster than pulling the knuckle.. thanks though for the visual.
Ray Ambriz: thank you i am learning how to do repair
bu: I have a 2005 grand caravan se. Does anybody know if the procedure would be the same???
Autotechviewpoint: With this specific video for 2000 caravan, no you do not any recalibration. If you are working on a different vehicle then, not totally sure. You can always try to see how all your controls work, if they are fine, then you likely do not need to worry about calibration. Recharge? A/C ? are you talking about the A/C?
Herbert Fajardo: After I replace the Heather Core and put back the panel, have I something else to do? Somebody told me a bout a "Actuator Calibration and Diagnostic" is that true or just recharge it?
Autotechviewpoint: No you do not need to mess with the A/C at all.
Lancaster Loogie: So I take it you have to get your AC recharged right?
aybesee123: WARNING: On vehicles equipped with airbags, disable the airbag system before attempting any steering wheel, steering column, or instrument panel component diagnosis or service. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative (ground) cable, then wait two minutes for the airbag system capacitor to discharge before performing further diagnosis or service. Failure to take the proper precautions could result in accidental airbag deployment and possible personal injury or death.
Marc030320: note when I said I removed the steering wheel - I mean just that. I left the steering column/power steering unit (the one that goes through the floor) totally alone except to remove the outer boot cover and push it up like he said to do in the video.
Marc030320: Also: the other tricky part was the gear level switch: It just pulls off, but then is in a holder that was a little annoying, so I just unbolted the holder from the steering column. Problem solved (was easier than trying to pinch/pull etc the entire thing).
Marc030320: I have a 2000 Dodge Caravan. This worked pretty well. The tricky part(s) were: getting the steering column top connector off/out (took a little wiggling). I was worried the break safety switch was going to be in the way, but it wasn't (The white module in the video to the left of the break pedal). I marked, then removed my entire steering wheel (was easier, I thought, than having it in the way). I also simply removed the air filter unit in my car to get the hoses off. No wipers in the way.
mannyspeedy16: nop just rip out the entire dash, like i did >.>
Autotechviewpoint: @sirdavester Best I can tell you is to just take a good look at your vehicle and compare it to what you see in the video..
sirdavester: does that also work for a 1992 Chrysler Town And Country, because i have to replace the heater core on mine since it has been bypassed before i bought it back in june.
stealhty1: im doing mine tomorrow,thanks for showing
98eck: May be changing one of these soon so thanks for posting a video.
I have a 2000 Grand Caravan as well but the carpet on the right side (passenger) appears to get wet, up high by the firewall, and then drips/trickeled down. Is it possible that the heater core is bad and leaking that far over? Judging from the location in your video I would say no but the van doesn't have heat for along time, there is a funny odor (something smells hot) and like I mentioned wet carpet.
