Are your heater hoses leaking from the push on connections right at the firewall? I've read you can simply remove those push on connections and put the hose right on the heater core. The connectors were only for speed of assembly.
Yes, they're leaking at the connectors at the heater core at the firewall. That's true for the Silverado/Sierra. I actually did that on mine when the connector broke. On the Tahoe/Suburban/Yukon since most have rear A/C you can't that I've seen as there is a split off. This is what it looks like on the SUVs. https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p...d/11547688-P?searchTerm=heater hose connector

Just a little update. Wife has been driving the Tahoe. While she was on spring break, I re-sealed the windshield. Work getting done to the Tahoe over the next several weeks....

- Left rear door lock actuator
- Heater hose connectors
- Rear main seal, oil pan gasket, oil pickup tube o-ring, and an oil change

Stay tuned!
