I can't for the life of me figure out how you can get the core back in and have the tubes go through the wall. The just hit the dashboard, and if I line them up with the holes, there's no way the core will slide down in. They swivel, but they seem to protrude too far forward.
Think it would be ok if I cut the core tubes, lined everything up, and then use two small pieces of hose/clamps to reconnect it?
Seems the only other way is to pull the whole airbox. Which would involve having to decompress the AC.
Edit: I removed the two screws from the inside, and the four nuts from the engine bay. I can wiggle the airbox unit, but can't pull it out away from the firewall. If I could just get it 4-5 inches back I could slide the tubes in.
