It's not that hard to do on the 2000 Dip There is plenty of room behind the front cap but extreamly hard to do on the 2000 Dynasty it's hardly an room behind the front cap.

When the "Mississippi MacGyver" told me it was difficult for HIM to change his heater core, I felt the fear. Whipped out my Visa and paid a local truck repair shop to change my heater core. $300 well spent, I think. They didn't even have to break the AC connections. 'Course they had a 120# wiry 20-something who laid himself over the genny as if he were about to take a nap.

Walt, bless you, my Brother! When I grow up, I want to be just like you! Time for more great catfish and Jalapeno hush puppies at that country restaurant out in the middle of nowhere.

Quick question for Petebur!

When you had that cover off, could you have removed the fan and fan motor? I need to get to mine, and believe I have to get to it from inside the coach. If I can do it from the outside, it would definitely be worth it.

Jim it will be from the inside or at least on the older coaches.

I think thatís what it is call, the part that does the cooling. Is this a job I could do in my driveway? Perhaps I could remove it and take it to a radiator shop? Do any of you all have experience in removing the heater core?
Any help would be appreciated,
The previous owner of my coach replaced the heater core in it a couple of years ago. It said it was a bear, but he was able to get to it from the outside of the coach where the generator sits.

Jim I will past the procedure I used on a 99 Diplomat almost 15 yrs ago and not sure any of it will help but generally the bottom part of the passenger dash is removable.

99 DIPLOMAT FAN MOTOR REPLACEMENT

To test, unhook the 4 wire plug (on fire wall in generator
compartment) the plug is on top of the heater A/C box on passenger
side. Find a good ground and with the key on run ground out the plug
where the orange wire goes on the plug or just try the ground wire on
all 4 wires if the motor don't run as in my case it's probably bad.

Remove the 2 drawers out of the center cabinet, inside the cabinet box
you should find one square drive screw in the middle of the 1x2 and
one on each side also it was one about 6" up on the right side and one
in the top front on driver side, pull the cup holder out and there's
one behind it. Pull cabinet out I didn't have to unhook the air
registers or the 110v, I just slid it to the side by holding up on the
dash (note be careful not to press down on the dash unless the corner
of the cabinet is supporting it). There are 7 square drive screws
holding the right bottom dash to the top half, you will need a battery
screwdriver not the pistol grip type.

Take out a screw that holds the dash to the wall on the bottom right,
remove the trim in front of the door so you can spring the dash out to
get the screwdriver under the dash. Remove the 7 screws and lower dash.

Now remove the 4 clips around the fan motor and the two 3/8 nuts that
holds the case to the air distributor, the fan motor case may be stuck
with silicone just give it a tug, remove the ground and hot wire
remove the 5 phillips head screws that hold the motor to the blower
case and one screw that holds the ground wire, turn the motor over and
using a 5/16 socket remove the squirrel cage, be sure to get the
little bracket under the squirrel cage.

After installing the new blower motor, reverse the above procedure to
put things back together.

The Blower motor was $18.99 at Discount Auto Parts without the

squirrel cage, the part is # PM105 35588

As has been noted on the Monaco Board it is a 1994 or 95 Chevy PU fan
motor.
