I had the same problem. There is a faulty valve that takes a few mins to replace. My job was done under warranty

Do you have a diagram or a picture of this valve? I need mine replaced and think I could do it myself.

Change over valve part # A2118320584 - #30 in diagram. The valve is located in the engine compartment, beneath the plastic trim below the windshield on driver’s side.

Hi konigstiger,

I'm trying to replace a valve myself. Is there any precaution I should be aware of before the installation? Thanks!

USE EXTREME CAUTION removing from the heater core so you don't crack a joint. Don't twist or pull excessively where it attaches to the core.

Good judgment comes from bad experience. Now want to know how to change a heater core in a Corvette.

Thanks for the help! Other than carefully removal, is there any thing I should be paying attention? Is the water going to leak out of the heater core or other place?
