SOURCE: heater core replacement
Actually if your handy the heater core on this car is pretty easy.. passengers side under the dash... but here is a link to some sites that will probably help
from .... one of the wikki sites.. LOL cant remember which now
The heater core is located under the dash, in the center above the "hump". The container holding the core looks like a black plastic box. Remove the ash tray for easier access. You may have to also remove some other covers under the dash. First drain the radiator. Then you have to disconnect the hoses. There are two hoses connected to nipples of the heater core that are thru the center of the firewall. This has to be done from underneath the car while raised. I also had to unbolt a frame support to get to the hose clamps (I have big hands; you may be able to reach them without unbolting it). Remove the screws that hold on the cover to the heater core. You should be able to get the old one out now. Just go in reverse order to put it back together.
also this link is very handy they have a pretty complete collection for MANY vehicles

For re-installation just go in reverse order to put it all back together.

Well the heater core is located under the dash on the passenger side, usually cased in a plastic housing.You may have to remove the glove box in order to have access to. And when you get to the point, when you are disconnecting the coolant lines and remove the core you use some clothes to protect the carpet as fluid may drip. Post comments for further help or information........
Thanks for using FixYa!!

If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
