Need a NEW heater core for a 1998 Monaco Windsor Part number I have is E56407. I found one place at $276 surely there is another source for less than that---if not I'll just bite the bullet.

Hate to tell you this BUT, That's not a bad price. If you think that is high go price one for your car from your friendly dealer. By the way, your lucky you even found one for a 23 year old unit.

If you know the size then check price that way. If not pull it out and go from there. No a hard job to do. I just happen to replace one last month and no where that price and it is a big core. It just going to be in what you get. Some are high and others very high as as previously stated.

Once you pull it out, you may find that it is a minor situation that can easily be fixed at any radiator shop. If it cannot be fixed, I am sure that the radiator shop can find a generic replacement.

Iryrob I bought that 23 year old unit new and its never sat outside other than when I was using it. I paid it off in 3 years so no more payments and to get one of this quality would probably cost 1/2 a million. That radiator is 16.5X6.25x2.75. Pretty small to cost that much but if I don't find a better deal I'll bite the bullet---don't look easy to do to me!

Guess I need to get it pulled out. Looks like a bit to much for my 80 year old self. Looks like the easiest way is to take out the head light and go in through there. Thanks everyone

As I have found out, some jobs that used to take a few hours, can now take a few days. I still know it will be done right if I do it myself.
