Was hoping for the O-rings but found the seams in the heater core leaking. By-passed the heater core for now. Live in the NE US and will need it soon. Any tricks to do the heater core job on this LHD 02 RR or does the whole dash need to come out. Help!

Is there no one with some feedback on a LHD heater core replacement (no replies)? I found one site that says and shows a few cuts in the dash frame allows it to be replaced without taking out the whole dash. Just looking for reassurance before committing? Also, can a heater core be refurbished or do you need to spend $395 at Atlantic Brit. Seems pricey. Any feedback will assist.

No worry, you can do it. It's easier than on a RHD.
I did twice, once for mine and then for a friend.

Follow that path:

That's a friend tutorial on a LHD

Feel free to ask any question.

It's pretty easy except the glove box reinstall, realignment :crybaby2:

Ok, mine's a RHD and as 996Turbo rightly says it's a b**ch to do this on a RHD as you have to remove the steering column. However, there are a lot of similarities in terms of access. Feel free to browse the pics of my recent adventure at http://paulp38a.com/gallery/v/99RR/heaterorings/. My work was only the heater core o-rings but I was only a step away from removing the steering column too :wink:

Cheers, Paul.

Plenty of information on the main site. Click on the RangeRovers.net above, then surf to repair details for the 4.0/4.6 models. I did my core recently using the dash slice and dice method. It pained me a bit to cut metal like that but probably saved 15 hrs in labor.
