The boot you need to replace is call OUTER CV BOOT.
The quickest way to inspect is to drive it in low speed (UNDER 10 mph) tight left and right turns.
If you hear clicking sound then the CV shaft is bad.
It's also depending on how long the CV boot been crack.
If you decide to go ahead on the job then please observe safety and use jack stands to fully support the front end.
Remove wheel,cotter pin,retainer cap and larger axle nut.
Make alignments markings on the strut tower and steering mount so your front end will able to put back to alignment.
You will need an able body to do the following.
Remove the large lower strut bolts and swing the strut off the CV.
DO NOT ROCK THE CAR!!!
Clean off the outer CV.
Install boot,grease and the two bands.
Line up the strut and steering yoke marks
repack bearings,lock nut,cap,cotter pin,wheel.
Drive the car in low speed for 1 miles with tight turns.
Do a quick inspection to make sure the CV boot is sitting perfectly on the CV.

there is no easy way to change out a heater core...you have to take the bottom part of the dash loose and that takes some doing. once you get the bottom of the dash apart you will see the heater core.then you have to go under the hood and unhook both water lines that run to it, you should then be able to pull the heater core out and install the new one
