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.

Rule of thumb...unless you get a better answer: look for a couple of wires on a small plate that is in the airflow of the fan on the heater/ac unit. The resistor pack is always air cooled by the fan.

There is no real easy way to do it....not like the older cars..
CAUTION After disconnecting the negative battery cable, wait for at least 10 minutes for the air bag module to deplete its stored energy.
CAUTION Place the air bag module in a safe location with the front facing upward.
NOTE If may be necessary to mark the steering wheel to steering column alignment.
