    domisvo, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

    Now we know the heater core can be replaced without all the trouble of taking the dash out!

    Questions: What did you have to remove to do the job?
    Did you get the new part from Nissens or Thermotec or ...?

    THANK YOU foama!!!
    Need only remove the center dash of airduct and radio cd just like in my photos,the plastic parts in handbrake and lever transmissions,glove box,plastic parts under the steering wheel,remove gas pedal,also remove the connectors from circuit board left from OBD,generally all down plastic parts and you will see the heater core pipes.Next deattached the pipes,rotate up and pull out the heater core.
    For new part i found here in Greece same heater core with connectors https://ava-cooling.com/katmod1.php?xart=MT6289

    Thanks domisvo! What model year is your car?

    I'm going to re-post the pics to make them easier to look at. And for anyone in North America, it looks like you can order this from the UK and have it shipped for about $60 total (if my Euro conversion is remotely accurate)...

    My model is Mitsubishi Spacestar Cleartech/Mirage 2014 1.0 52KW/71PS,Thermotec heater core is the best and cheap solution with removal tubes of course,better and most easy to replace it.Here in Greece the price for Thermotec is 47€ without extra shipping and Nissens is more more more expensive(184€)
    Top Fuel thanks for make my photos more visible than me
