This is quoted from an article in Motor Service, Feb, 2001 by Demian Hurst, ASE Certified Triple Master Technician, Master Chevrolet Technician. "Make sure the engine is NOT at operating temperature (in other words, thoroughly cool) ... The heater case cover screw nearest the firewall will be difficult to see, but is the secret to removing the heater core without lengthy and complex disassembly procedures ... Use a long? in.-drive extension to access and remove this screw. Carefully remove the heater case cover from the vehicle. ... Pinch off the heater hoses using the proper smooth-jawed clamps. Disconnect the heater hoses from the heater core tubes at the firewall. Be prepared to catch the coolant for proper disposal. ... Remove the screws attaching the heater core to the heater case and remove the heater core."
