Have replaced my heater core in my 2001 regular cab 4wd in december 2009. Had to pull the complete dash including the complete metal dash behind the dash that you see. Also had to remove the right passenger side inner fender well to acess the remaining two bolts that hold the heater core cover to the firewall. Its an insane job to do but the repair shop books call for 9 1/2 hrs to do the job. I'm not an expert but this is what it takes.

Needing a short cut to replacing the heater core 97 twn car

You can start by not completely removing the dash and most of the components of the dash can stay connected, you will pull dash out a little and then pull away from pass/side and tie up out the way, instead of dissconecting all the dash components like radio heater controls and etc, the steering column can be removed its not hard, unplug connector and the shaft and remove the steering column as a whole, hope this helps.

Haveing problems removeing heatercore.

on cavalier and sunfires, the whole dash has to be removed to get the hvac unit out, steering column and all, they easy to get out after the dash removed, you will need a day or so for the whole job. after the hvac unit is out, you have to take it apart, there may also be a access door where the heater core sits that you may pull the heater core out.
