    It's so super simple to get that steering column out at that point.
    My whole life, I've never found anything more ironic than doing three times the work in the name of laziness.
    Thanks for the great videos!

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Timmel says:

    Chevy truck (my 2003 Silverado 1500) you have to pull the steering wheel. There is a bar on the underside of the dash that runs under the steering column. Pain in butt. I just put an ac evaporator in mine earlier this summer with a friends help.

    Mrs "O" is awesome!!! You are a very lucky man. She deserves a BEER 🍺!!!

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Raymond Niven says:

    Worked in a bodyshop as a combination tech. We used to do a lot of theft recovery and airbag thefts that required dash replacement. I averaged 4 a week, mostly Maximas(Bose sound systems, and airbags) and Lexus. Never had a helper. You bought back memories.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shari Lee Slater says:

    I owned three of them

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shari Lee Slater says:

    dodge fuse boxes are famous for burning out from the bottom from corrosion Eric!!!! Just saying!!

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ejay says:

    In Australia you see flatbed trays or alloy trays with gates on probably more than 50% of utes/pickups, its kind of strange to see checkerplate toolboxes set inside a plastic bed.
    I've noticed that almost all pickups in America are plastic trays from the factory, is it not a dealership option to get a proper tray? Is this another ridiculous enviro law? Does this vary state to state?
    Plastic beds are fairly inconvenient/impractical if you're actually going to carry tools or heavy/bulky gear. And they usually lack useful tiedown points for lashing.

    Hope to see you on Rumble

    Brings back memories of me doing a heater core on my 1981 Ford LTD back in the mid 1990's. Lots of work. Dealer had quoted 11 hours I think. It was just think it through, and just do it! That was back in the days before YouTube. Happily a buddy was service advisor at the Ford dealer, he lent me the factory Ford repair manual for a couple days so I could find all the hidden mounting bolts! Took some of the initial stress out of the job.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SI Rich says:

    I'd just tell my insurance company I totaled the vehicle………

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom E says:

    glad you're doing that and not me..looks like a nightmare!

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wicker Man says:

    Fixen to start that on my 2008 ram. Think I might just take the seats out so I can move around a little easier. Not looking forward to it but got to do it. Summer coming in Texas , black truck equals heat stroke with out AC. Ugh. Wish you would have done the tare down but think I can figure it out watching this video.
    Thanks for the info. Not the first time your videos helped me on this truck. Broken exhaust bolts got them out thanks 🙏.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Trolling 4 Dollars says:

    Kudos to you for such great audio. I dont know how you do it when most other YT'ers fail at capturing the spoken word. With your positive attitude (and watching videos directly relating to the vehicle work I need to do) I am going to get greasy in the near future. Thank you.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars R. B.L. says:

    Thanks Man,
    Glad ya made the 2 parts.
    That Hack ZlP CH0P that ls a HEATER TREATER KlT,
    l nearly dld lt
    TlLL YA SAVED ME!
    THANKS!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars localcrew says:

    I will probably have to do this to my ‘04 Ram 1500 one of these days. Mix doors are janky and I’m pretty sure that the heater core is leaking. It’ll probably be easy though. Right?

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Greg Hamilton says:

    You are so lucky to have. Vanessa (Mrs. O) to help. I work for myself in my shop at home and do not have a Mrs O to help! You have taught me a lot about vehicles I did not know! Y?Very smart man Eric! Keep them coming!!

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Arsenault says:

    Good job

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nelson Eichelber says:

    Good job

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars joseph puchel says:

    Hey Wow I’m just watching your video tutorial on the mode door replacement. You pointed out some good details on installation bolt/screw , wire locations. I’m going to be doing same on my truck. I’m going with Blend Door. Excellent video

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    Did my 94 dodge ram 2500 318 v8 unbolted the dash and raised it up after unbolting opened the case and changed out the heater core the ac was fine worked great put it all together and put in a new blower motor and temp regulator for the fan speed thankfully I didnt need to do the 97 ram just the heat fan speed control and the blower motor got repaired everything else was fine till the dodge garage got hold of it

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Labrador McGraw says:

    These two videos are invaluable – I've learned so much from them. You make everything look so easy… and you somehow always seem to have the correct size driver on the hardware.
    Love your work, love your style, love the South Main Auto channel. Unbeatable!

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gpse3400 says:

    That dash looks like a prison with those vents LOLOLOL

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lou Indorato says:

    What’s it cost roughly for a job like that ?

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donnie Robertson says:

    Second time watching 6/25/2020

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roger Horton says:

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ozzy Krahn says:

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Blair says:
