SOURCE: heater core replacement
It's one of the easiest cores to replace that I have encountered. Disconnect heater hoses at firewall. Probably doesn't matter about hose placement, but I always mark them just in case. To remove the fiber cover under dash, take a flat blade screwdriver and pry out the center pin of the expansion clips that hold it in place. There are four 5/16 head screws that hold the bottom/drain tray cover. Core will pull through the firewall and then down. You may have to silicone/glue or replace the foam seal strips on the new core. Before you install the core, check the distance between the inlet and outlet tubes to ensure they match the openings in the firewall. This saves time. It helps if you have someone on the outside to guide you when stabbing the tubes through the firewall. Replace bottom cover. You may have to hold one of the tubes when reinstalling the first hose to the core. Replace any lost coolant and check for leaks prior to reinstalling the fiber cover. If the cover seal is in good condition, any leak should drain through the firewall, otherwise it may leak inside cab. .

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.

it is located under the dashboard against the firewall of the passenger seat. i recomend buying a repair manual from your local auto parts store before attempting as it requires draining, flushing, refilling and bleeding the cooling system as well as removing many other componets like the entire dashboard and thermostat

This is easy. Lift the lid open. Look at the back of the sealed beam and you will see a clip and an o ring. Pull the clip up and pull wires back toward the driver's seat. Unscrew the o ring and firmly pull the bulb out toward the driver again. Note the 3 tabs on the bulb seat and realign the new bulb with those tab ( 2 bottom, 1 top). Replace with #9007 bulbs..do them both.

Unfortunately, this is one of the most complex and time consuming operations, short of changing the engine/transmission that can be done to the car.
The heater core is mounted in a box, inside the passenger compartment, almost dead center behind the dashboard and is mounted directly on the firewall to allow the hoses to go through. If you put your hand just above the accellerator pedal, and go toward the center console, you'll find the heater core box.
There is no way to remove the heater core from the engine compartment. In fact, other than draining the radiator and removing the hose clamps and a bolt or two, youll have little interaction with the engine compartment.
Begin by disabling the air bag system, by removing all power from the vehicle. Be SURE the air bags are disabled as they are extremely dangerous if they activate while you are working under the dash.
Next remove the entire instrument panel, and all the decorative plastic. To do this you may have to remove the steering wheel also. Be sure to label everything as you go. Then remove all the heater controls. Once done, you should be able to access the black heater box that the core rests in. Remove that, and if you have loosened the hoses and screws in the engine compartment, the heater core will come free and you can replace it.
For a much better and more detailed explanation of how to do this, I used the Haynes Repair Manual. (Note, Im not affiliated with them, they just had the best description of the procedure.)
I dont really recommend doing this yourself unless you are a very patient and reasonably accomplished mechanic. This will involve removal of all the dash, instruments and controls, and frankly, even when the dealer did this, the car is never quite the same again.
One other hint, after replacing the heater core, use a length of good heavy copper wire to wrap around one of the hose entry points (metal to metal contact) and then ground the core to the engine block or frame. This will help prevent the electrolysis that killed the core the in the first place.
