Here, we're demonstrating how to change a heater core on a late model Ford Explorer or Mercury Mountaineer. In this step, we're going to talk about the proper service procedure for removing your glove box. Now, we're going to end up taking out a whole bunch of components in order to get our instrument panel loose to gain access to our heater core box. First off, we're going to start with the glove box. Just going to take and open it up. Most vehicles will have little tabs here and here, that you just take and squeeze the sides in and roll the glove box down. You can see the little tab right there. Just take and squeeze the side in, so it will clear. Once you roll it down and out of the way, you can take and remove the hinge mounting bolts. Now, on this particular one we have three and they're indicated by the nice bronze color. We've got on here. One here. And, one here. I'm going to go ahead and take those loose right now. This particular one happens to be a seven millimeter. There's one, you're going to want to put this in your magnetic tray for later reinstallation. And, for the last one. If your glove box is equipped with a light, you're going to want to unplug that at this time as well. This particular vehicle doesn't have one, so we don't have to worry about that. Alright. There's our last screw. We'll take and wiggle the glove box off. You're going to want to take and set this aside, so it doesn't get dirty or damaged. That is the proper service procedure for removing your vehicle's glove box.
