    heater core delete

    I have a question on deleting the heater core and the box attached to the firewall. I have removed everything up to the box on the firewall and behind it. When deleting your entire hvac system, does everything under and behind the glove box go? I just don't want to accidentally remove a module for the airbags or some other thing besides an hvac component.

    the airbag sensor component is located under the center counsel just behind the e-brake, under the armrest pocket you use for spare change and stuff. The bcm is located just behind the glove box and IIRC is mounted to the heater core box wall.

    That may change but not atm. What does the bcm look like, so I don't remove it. I am guessing it needs to stay right? I guess my main question is can everything behind the glove box go?

    There was a picture of it here somewhere, I'll see if I can find it.

    Can't mistake it though. You'll need it if you want things like radio, windows and locks, alarm, remote time delay etc...to work, if those aren't gutted yet.

    Okay so I will keep it then. There is a module that is cylindrical and silver. Would that be it? It looks like I would need to take it off to remove the heater core box and then reattach it to the hvac delete plate.

    If this is the bcm, this is in my engine compartment right next to the drop down to access my drivers daytime running light and turn signal.

    if you are refering to the cylinder with the orange vaccum line connected to it, it looks like a vaccum tank.

    Okay thanks I already removed it. For some reason I do not see anymore bolts or screws but the whole box won't come loose

    What is this? I am trying to figure out how to remove it since it is in the way of the box on the wire wall for the heater core.

    That is your fan speed resistor. It can go if you do not plan on using you fan anymore.

    Alright out it goes. At some point I will pull the dash to get the rest of the duct work and airbags.
