Gday, we've got a rear heater between the seats in the Patrol (import as it may be)

Its never needed, and is an annoying source of heat in the cab even tho we never run it.

My uneducated guess is that it has coolant pipes running through, which im wary of ripping out for obvious reasons. these would either need to be blocked or joined further up at a guess.

Can anyone shed any light on the subject?

I would like to stick a drink cooler between the seats.

Regards

Rev

Hi Rev,
Never seen one myself BUT....It must run to ur firewall somewhere that the heater hoses connect to it. Its at this point (in engine bay) that you need to block hoses off properly. Then start to remove the heater core inbetween seats. Remember that it will still have water in it so either block the ends off first or connect extension hose to it so the watre will run outside ur vehicle.

60 series have similar thing just plug up holes where hoses from that core originate in the engine bay and remove entire setup PS does remove a lot of uneccesary heat in the cab cheers Paul
