Re: [DML] Cleaning off heater core to improve airflow



IF you can get a vacuum cleaner nozzle into the intake maybe just use compressed air to blow it out. Let the cleaner suck it up.

I'm getting pretty low airflow through my heater/AC system and suspect 
that I have an accumulation of lint on the heater core restricting 
airflow (which would be reasonable for my 190K mile car).

I reviewed the workshop manual that outlines how to remove the core 
(including discharging the AC system, emptying coolant, etc). I don't 
really need to remove/replace the system, I just need to expose it 
sufficiently to allow me to vacuum it off well.

Does anyone have first-hand experience with this that can provide 
recommendations for how to best clean off the core (hopefully without 
wholesale removal of everything)?
