EM Heater Box Removal Helpconfused smiley
Date: February 01, 2011 09:16PM

I'm trying to remove my heater box to replace the seals. I've removed all of the fasteners and the box is now loose. I have been uable to remove it however, because it appears to be trapped by the rear suspension body mounts. Can someone tell me how to do this?

I've scoured the shop manual for guidance, but I haven't located any reference to this task. Is it in the manual?

I just removed mine a few weeks back. Just be patient and take your time, and move it back and forth and it will come out.

Did either of you need to disconnect the brake lines, fuel lines and control cables to remove the box?

Have you tried to take it out from the top after you remove that panel behind the rear seat? Im in the process of restoring my interior and mine comes right out that way. You need to loosen the two nuts that attach to the plate and also remove the two bolts on the bottom. Also take the boot off that goes to the firewall. When you take the plate off pull it toward the front of the car not upwards.

Its really cool cause you dont need to try to get around all that dirty suspension.

My car is a convertible, so the construction may be different. I'll take a look. I'm still wrestling with it!

Yea I forgot to mention I have the engine/tranny out and I have the rear suspention out..disconnected the brake line at wheel drum. all the steel lines coming out the bottom (brake,gas) are untouched. As for the 2 control cables I just unhooked them at the box

Success!! Thx guys! I removed it from the rear, without disconnecting any lines/cables. I removed the two brackets from the bottom of the box, which gave me a little more play.
