    Pretty sure my heater core is going, I was wondering if anyone has replaced one one on the 08- and newer trucks. I saw a video for the 99-07 and they were right behind the glove box (no need to rip the dash apart). I am HOPING the 08's and newer are the same. I haven't had a chance to pull anything apart yet, probably this weekend. I didn't see any leaks anywhere and the resivoir is a bit low and I smell a hint of antifreeze when I first turn the heat on in the truck. The truck still has heat though. Any thoughts???

    If you're smelling it in the cab it is most likely the heater core. Hopefully it's as easy as just removing the glovebox.

    I do them all the time at work( day job at a ford dealer). You have to pull the dash out to access the heater core box. Then pull that out and then replace the heater core. Takes about 8-10 hrs
