Default heater removal...

hey gang, I had a quick question. since I pulled my AC and fan from under my dash, the heater is basically useless. so Im gonna yank it.

my question is can I just loop the heater core hoses on the motor to cut it out of the system?

Yup, I do it every summer here in Vegas to keep things as cool as possible. They sell a nice splice in the "help" section at most parts stores.

Leave it dude, but you're in cali so you prolly don't really need one. I would die without one, WA is cool like that.

I pulled mine. I have a part number somewhere for the hose you need. I'll look for it (bug the hell out of me and I might eventually get it to you). You can also ask your FLAPS to allow you to walk behind the counter to look for funky "U" shapped hoses. Just walk around a bit until you see something that looks right.
