I have a 68 RS and is there an easy way to change the heater core? The only way I can see is to take the fender off. I was thinking maybe some way to get out from the inside. Any help would be appreciated.

If the car has A/C and all of the fasteners are in place then fender removal is required.

I'm not sure about non-A/C cars.

You may want to do a site search on this subject. There has been much discussion on this topic.

Thanks I forgot to note that it is a SB and no A/C. I have fears that taking the fender is the only way. Me and rusty bolts don't get along well.

I replaced the core on my 69 Z just recently and no fender removal is required.Your car is the same.The core and heater box come out from inside the pass.side floor.If you want a detailed step by step "how to" with pictures use the "search" under heater core and there's a post that will walk you through the procedure. Good luck! Cary

Just picked up a life saver it is a 90 deg ratchet with a twist handle. This should make the nuts easier to get off thanks for all the input and for the step by step. CarlC has a great help page I recomend it highly.
