    98 Town Car heater

    Hey guys. I'm lurking over here, from the Box forum for a co-worker. He has a 98 Towny, and his heater core is leaking. What we need to know is, is how to do this, what are the shortcuts, pit falls, etc. I did mine in my 89 GM in about two hours, but we're talking about a 10 year difference, plus the airbag, and anything else that might blow up in my face. The guy who disconnected it, also disconnected some wiring and stuff (F#@%^@# Floridians!!!), so I've got a little bit of a job ahead of me. Thanks ahead of time, Mike

    By what I can gather, its about 99% the same. I checked for how to do the blend door, and it details pulling the dash apart in the same way as the 80s box models.

    This is a must-see site for fans of American luxury hot rods. Message forums, tech advice, news, and automotive performance links are offered for Lincoln Mark VIII and Mark VII, Lincoln LS, Town Car, Continental, Navigator, Aviator, Zephyr, MKR, MKS, MKZ and more.

    THe blend door should be mounted right on the side of the heater core box, so it should become clear once you get to that point. I'd suggest a new blend door actuator while you're in there as they are failure prone and cuase random AC and heat issues when it fails.
