Search 'books' for Peugeot 405 (you will find the Haynes Manual). Make sure you choose the right one for your Year & type (Petrol/Diesel) = the wiring diagrams are in the back. Cost is about £20.
You can also borrow the Manual from your local Library for free ..

they are easy to remove. they are held by a small clamping bolt/bracket and sealed with copper washer. watch for high pressure fuel in lines.

On paper the procedure for this does indeed involve removing the entire dashboard and it really is a nightmare of a job to do. Having worked on this model before I can however give you this tip.
On the 405 the heater matrix can be disconnected from the engine side as it is connected to the coolant system at the bulkhead. If you then take out the glovebox assembly on the passenger side you will find enough room to work the matrix out towards you.
The only problem is that it is very slightly obstructed by the dash itself when you go to slide it out. If you want to avoid a day and a half of labour all you have to do is take a slight nick - no more than one inch out of the dash which is way down by the passengers feet and really not something you are going to notice a great deal.
The whole heater matrix will then slide out. The matrix can be changed by this method in around an hour. For the sake of an inch of plastic which you are really not going to notice this is the method I would advise.
The alternative is complete removal of the dash assembly for which you will need a service manual and at least a day and a half of your time not to mention the potential problems that occur from removing a dash - upsetting electrics - heater controls etc ........
Hope you find this useful. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks.

there should be a key switch inside the car somewhere you need to turn it to the off position with the ignition key
(it will probably be some where on the dash, in the glove box or center console)
