Open the glove box and bend the 2 tabs and fold the glove box door down, you will then see a plate with 6 to 8 screws, remove the plate, drain the cooling system, remove the heater hoses and pull the heater core out, reverse procedure to put back together

You trucks heater core is leaking inside the dash heating vents, the air blower motor blows through the heater core and then you smell the leaking coolant in the form of a sickly sweet vapor. You will need to replace the header core, this is a fairly big job and in most cases best left to a professional.
Hi, look at this way ,,,, it's wet on both sides on the inside of cabin. Gravity being what it is , check the heater cowling below the heater matrix for (water) dampness. On a bad day there are only two hoses coming thru the engine bulkhead ,,, to the heater matrix , so do the maths yourself . A pressure tester will expose any weak / vunerable hose connection. Good Luck
The heater core is leaking,this is what fills with coolant,and heats up from the engine,and the blower pushes the warm air from the heater core into the cab.The garage would be the best bet to replace the heater core for you.
Likely you are in the beginning stage of a heater core leak. at this point, you may be able to temporarily solve the problem by using a good system sealer (I'm partial to the kind that comes as a silver powder) Since we don't actually know the condition of the core, temporary may mean a week or several years, but replacement is expensive and time consuming so I'd definitely give it a try.
You have a coolant leak most likely in the heater core. Try disconnecting your heater hoses and coupling them together, then running the engine to see if the leak goes away. If it does, I would have the heater core replaced.
