4.10. Heater radiator


Below the order of removal of a radiator of a heater is in detail described. It is much simpler to remove a radiator after removal of the evaporator, however for this purpose it is necessary to depressurize previously the highway of air conditioning system and to remove coolant.

To remove a heater radiator the manufacturer recommends to dismantle all dashboard and a steering column. For this purpose it is required to disunite a large number of sockets therefore there is a potential danger of breakage of fragile plastic latches, clamps, etc. on various details. Application of this method independently in garage conditions is inexpedient because of its complexity.

On early models of a series 60 the radiator of a heater can be removed without dismantle of the dashboard.




Before works disconnect a safety cushion.

1. Disconnect the battery from weight.
2. Merge cooling liquid.
3. Working from a motor compartment, disconnect heater hoses on a partition of a motor compartment.
4. Push a rubber sealant on a partition of a motor compartment in salon, having disconnected sealant zakraina from edges of an opening in a partition.
5. Remove the central section, a glove box, an overlay of a glove box, an ashtray, the receiver with the front panel and the panel of forward facing of salon (see rice. Details of the dashboard and forward facing of interior of the FJ60 car, rice. Details of the dashboard and forward facing of interior of the FJ80 car).
6. Remove the control panel of the heater / conditioner (see subsection 4.11).
7. Remove an electronic control unit, without disconnecting sockets and take aside to provide sufficient working space under the heater radiator case.
8. Remove heater brackets.
9. Turn off bolts of fastening and remove the channel of the central air duct.
10. Remove air duct section assembled with the delitelny gate which is directly over a radiator of a heater and it is a little displaced forward.
11. Weaken an inhaling of screws of fastening (are specified by shooters) heater branch pipes to the case.
12. Get a radiator from under the forward panel.
13. Spread on a floor rug a large number of rags for absorption of the spilled cooling liquid.


When performing this operation be careful not to damage plastic details of a heater. The radiator assembled with tubes can be removed, having carefully pulled from a wall of a motor compartment to exempt plastic ears from gearing with nearby details.

14. Installation is carried out upside-down.
15. Fill in liquid in the cooling system, start the engine, be convinced of lack of leaks and check work of a heater.
