CAUTION: With a pressurized cooling system, the coolant temperature in the radiator can be considerably higher than the boiling point of
the solution at atmospheric pressure. Removal of the surge tank cap, while the cooling system is hot and under high pressure, causes the
solution to boil instantaneously with explosive force. This will cause the solution to spew out over the engine, the fenders, and the person
removing the cap. Serious bodily injury may result.

1st set a drain -pan under the area closest the two hoses that run into the core itself and remove the 2 clamps ..let drain the fluid .
2nd remove the old heater-core from from under the dash this requires removind a few panels inside the vehicle closest area to look to reach would be where you removed the 2 outside hoses ..a bit of time is required to reach it ..after doing so remove and reinstall new heater core and reattach all screws etc as well as the outer hoses and when everything is tight and secure refill the radiator as well as turn on the heater levers to full operation and allow the fluid back into the new core this will take some time to keep an eye on the fluid levels to also get all the air that may be in the new core itself ...
