Follow the two black hoses that are approx 3/4's of an inch , they will go to the firewall/ rear of engine.
it is very likely behind the glove box inside of the vehicle.

How do I cange the heater core in my 1995 Chevy Berretta


Start by removing the panel under the dash on the passenger side. You will need a regular phillips screwdriver and a snubby 2-3" phillips later. Also get a 1/4" socket set. First thing, go under the car and remove the heater hoses from the firewall and twist out the drain spiggot. Then go back inside the car. The heater core sits under the radio. Under the core is a tray used to catch the leaking antifreeze and drain it out the firewall. You need to remove this tray. It has 6-8 screws holding it. Once the screws are out it is tricky removing it with the center console in, but it can be done-twist and bend. Then remove the screws holding the core in place and pull out the heater core. One note on the replacement-got mine from Oreilly's for $20-the two lines coming out of the heater core swivel to line up with the holes through the firewall. If you don't swivel them it will never seem to fit. Then reverse the above order, fill up the fluid, bleed the air off and away you go. Took me about 3 hours total in a parking lot. Ruined a shirt, but got it done. You will also cuss being upside down under the dash. It's a small place for a 240 lb. guy :) This was for a 1993 Beretta. Expect some bloody knuckles and a few mental breakdowns.

Good luck, and rated the help!!!
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.

For heater core removal on these vehicles, please refer to the procedure for vehicles with A/C.
1994-96 VEHICLES
See Figures 1, 2 and 3
  1. Properly disable the SIR system, as outlined earlier in this section.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Drain the cooling system into a suitable container.
  4. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  5. Disconnect the drain tube from the heater case.
  6. Detach the heater hoses from the heater core.
  7. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  8. Remove the right and left sound insulators.
  9. Remove the steering column opening filler.
  10. Remove the floor air outlet duct.
  11. Remove the heater core cover.
