That vehicle is equipped with one of the easiest heater cores in the world to replace. Here are the instructions form the service manual:
Drain cooling system. Raise vehicle. From underneath, remove heater hoses from heater core. Remove drain tube. Lower vehicle. Remove right and left side sound insulator panels. Lower heating duct and hoses. Remove heater core cover and heater core. To install, reverse procedure. Fill and bleed cooling system.
HINT: I never drain the cooling system to replace a heater core. It is not necessary if you use a couple pairs of long-nose Vise-Grips to clamp off the heater hoses before you disconnect them from the heater core. That way, the only coolant you will lose is what is actually in the heater core itself.
drill the screw head off or grind it off, remove the plate, use a pair of pliers to hold the plastic base and a pair of vice grips to grip the shaft of the screw and turn it until it unwinds, remove the plastic base and replace with new ones
hope it works for you as it did for me
You will need to get a genuine fan kit form a service center, then elevate the vac and remove the carpet head. From the back of the housing there will be a series of screws facing forward into the front housing, several are counter sunk. Removing them will replace the front face of the housing. You should not have to pry.Look for partly hidden screws The belt shaft is threaded, once removed pay attention to washer and spacer location in front and back of fan. Grip the old fan by hand and the shaft with a set of vice grips or slid a long nail through the fan shaft hole to unscrew the shaft. Installation is reverse order with the shaft and screws hand tight... Post back to say how you make out
