Do you have to take the dash board off to get to the heater core on a 1996 Saturn SL2?

I have the Chilton manual for this vehicle and it appears as though you will need to disassemble the dash to get to the heater core. Before you do this, make sure you disconnect the hoses on the engine side of the firewall and try to blow out as much of the remaining coolant to avoid spilling on the interior later during removal.

The duct will have to be removed from the vehicle so whatever it takes to get there on your car will have to be done to get to the heater core itself.

The heater core, in a Saturn and 1200, is held in place by four bolts and two water hoses. Remove the bolts and the water hoses. The heater core will come out. Reverse the process to install the new heater core.

Unfortunately, there is no "easy" way to change the heater core. The entire dash board has to come out. then it's easy. Then you have to put the dash back in. Sorry :(
