The Gazelle car heater consists of a plastic casing in which a radiator is installed, two fans mounted on the motor shaft, upper, central and lower dampers and a control panel with three levers and switches

An additional resistor is installed on the left side of the heater, which provides reduced fan speeds

Drain the coolant (see Replacing the coolant).

Having removed the protective shield of the main heater hoses, and having disconnected the hoses from the radiator, we take it out of the main heater body (see Removing the main heater radiator).

Remove the instrument panel (see Removing the instrument panel).

Sealing gaskets are installed between the heater brackets and the body

The second way to remove the heater is without brackets

To do this, remove the electric fan and unscrew the two bolts securing the brackets to the heater.

Having lifted the heater by 1-2 cm, remove it from the brackets by removing the tip of the "mass" wire from the bracket bolt.

Install the heater in the specified sequence:

- install the heater brackets with gaskets on the motor shield and wrap the bolts of their fastening.

We "dress" the heater on the brackets, at the same time winding the loop of its attachment to the body bracket.

We wrap the bolts of the brackets to the heater and connect the wires and hoses.
