      • Q:

        dodge spirit 1993, which plug should I put it in? The description indicates CR. Is this center rear? and by rear, do they mean side by firewall, or can I use the plug on the front, very near to the tranny

          Hi Tony, glad to help you! Drive the vehicle onto a set of automotive ramps and apply the parking brake. Chock the rear wheels. Turn off the engine and allow it to cool. Open the hood and remove the radiator filler cap. Place a drain pan under the radiator drain plug. Loosen the drain plug with a pair of pliers and allow all of the coolant to drain into the pan. Tighten the drain plug and slide the drain pan aside. Crawl under the vehicle and locate the expansion plug on the side of the engine block below the exhaust manifold. Place a punch on the edge of the plug and rap it with a hammer until the plug dislodges. Remove the plug from the block and discard it. Sand any sharp or rough edges around the edge of the hole from which the expansion plug was removed with a piece of sandpaper. Lubricate the O-ring on the block heater and the hole in the block from which the plug was removed with grease. Loosen the retaining nut on the block heater fully in a counterclockwise direction with a wrench. Insert the heater into the hole in the engine block until it is fully seated. Tighten the heater retaining nut to the proper torque specification for the heater with a torque wrench. Route the heater's wiring away from moving parts and hot engine surfaces. Use tie wraps if necessary. Feed the wiring through an existing hole in the driver's side of the firewall. Place a funnel in the radiator filler opening. Pour the coolant from the drain pan back into the radiator. Remove the funnel and replace the radiator filler cap. Start the engine and let it warm up for 20 minutes. Check for leaks around the heater. Tighten the heater retaining nut as needed. Turn off the engine and close the hood. Remove the wheel chocks and back off the ramps.

          Well this all depends on the skill level of whoever is removing or replacing the part. Some may have a harder time than others who have experience.

          You will have to drill a hole through the battery tray. Just make sure that you take in to account where the battery sits on the tray or you will go to put your battery back in, and d'oh!
