The heater is located under the dash board to the right and down from the radio. To remove and replace it you will have to remove the dash board down to the fire wall. Also, you will have to disconnect two hoses that connect up to it from the engine compartment. These are located in the back of the engine and down on the firewall about midway. Once you remove the dash board and locate the heater core you will be able to see the location of these two hoses. Removing the heater core is time consuming but it will save you about 700 dollars.

I just changed my brothers on a 2001 kia rio. You have to go from the bottom. There is a tensioning adjustment on the top you have to undo, as well as a bolt on bottom. It is hard to get it out because there is not a lot of room, i remember it hitting either a p/s line or the rack, and being frustrated. I used a floor jack and block of wood under the engine and jacked it up to reposition it. It gave me enough room to get it out. Remove the bottom bolt and disconnect the wiring from it and it should drop out with some effort. Getting it back in was harder. Once you get it back into position connect the wiring before you bolt it up all the way, put the lower bolt in, put the belt on, then back to the adjustment on top. Make sure everything is tight and you should be done.
