Xw heater box core issue

Recommended Posts

Have pulled heater box out can’t find anything online that’s looks anywhere close to what I have 

pulled out ,most Xw-xy heater boxes online are a complete big square box mine is more off a cylinder funnel box with a short hose connecting to a letter box looking unit with a 45’ angle at one end . 

The heater core outlet pipe coming out through firewall has broken off and cannot find a way to remove core due to flap door hinge there doesn’t seem any way off removing flap door hinge rod with out destroying it so I can’t remove core to re core it any advice would be great. 

Maybe a radiator specialist have a way around this

i wonder if the angle was soldered on after it was inside the heater box? if so, then yes you'll need a radiator mob or skills to do it.
hard to know without pics,  i haven't seen one for more than 10yrs

wonder if that's aftermarket, someone's bodged one on from something else.

haven't seen anything like that before, but haven't really worked on PRE XA though

Hi all this might help

There were two types of heater boxes for the XY.

The one without the fan is commonly called a blow through heater it had a heater water core, but no fan
and obviously no fan speed switch see the pic of my car
It also came with the no fan , “heater delete” factory pov pack option.

My car however at some stage had a really old Smiths Beehive heater with fan , fitted to the car, probably because the original heater core leaked which was very common.

It works great and is toasty warm it’s still got the old bakerlite hi/low switch.

Maybe the only XY POV packs like mine and other early XY’s got the blow through heater from the XW? or even the XT?

Most of them got the big box that you would normally think of for a xy heater.

I’m no expert.
