I am in the middle of replacing the heater core and heater fan on my wife's '92 RRC. Blower motor was expensive, but went fine. I'm having problems with the heater core though. I've purchased 2 non-OEM cores from well-known Rover specialists but they don't fit. The corners on the non-OEM core end caps are much squarer than the OEM one I'm replacing and because of this they didn't fit into the heater box because it is moulded to be a tight fit against the rounder corners of the OEM end caps.

I decided to bite the bullet and purchase the OMG, I mean OEM one from Rovers North. They didn't have in stock and after contacting Land Rover UK were told they don't have any either - not available.

Has anyone purchased and installed a non-OEM core recently? The old one leaks so I can't just throw it back in. Both the ones I've tried were made in UK and close, but just didn't work when trying to get the heater box back together. I haven't tried the Proline one from Rovers North yet.

I'm thinking because of the plastic end caps this isn't something a radiator shop is going to be able to fix either - but let me know if you've had luck there instead.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the feedback/confirmation - at least I know I'm not completely crazy...

Yes, familiar with the heater hose connections from replacing those hoses last year as preventative maintenance. Good suggestion on attaching first, I'll try that out.
