Post camaro heater advice needed

posted this in interiors but nobody responded all day. i have no heat thru any openings even tho i hear the blower working and the box is warm. cable from hot cold works, but the vent selector for defrost/heat/vent is vacuum operated and there is a hose hanging down from the heater box on to the floor that obviously connects to something behind the box. i will find it when i take it apart. i just need to know how to go about doing that!! it's a '72 model SS.

Bull, I just took mine out, its in a '77 T/A, but it can't be very different. Theres only two hoses behind the box, hotwaterinlet/outlet hoses. The two vents on either far side of the dash has one of those coragated flexible pipe jobbies going to them, the center upper dash vents have a plastic Y that goes from the left side of the box up(if your looking at it, its the left) That sucker is a real pain to take out, but if you do make sure you reseal around it because that is one of the things the create rusted floorboards in the passengers side. Didn't help very much, but its all I got and its better that whatcha got so far. Let me know how it turns out.

Alright I read it about 6 times more and here we go. Removing it will be very time consuming. You'll have to take out the dash to get the heater box apart. To take the box apart just remove all the vents and open your hood and take off all the bolts out around the perimeter, There are 8-10, can't remember off hand. Also disconect the hoses (of course). Don't worry about the 4 down the center they just keep the two peices together under the hood. After you remove the 8-10 perimeter bolts you should be able to pull the inside unit out. Like I said once you put it back in make sure you seal around it to make sure none of that water gets in there or you will have mushrooms growing in the carpet and eventually rusted floors.
