I just had to replace the heater core in my 96 ranger. In the end i basically removed the entire dash to get it out and if there had been an easier way i would have stumbled onto it then. if mine ever goes again.... off to the shop it goes Answer
1995 and later models are done in this order, disconnect the negative battery cable, remove the instrument panel, remove the evaporator core housing, drain the radiator, disconnect the heater hoses, remove the nuts and the plenum chamber, remove the screws and remove the heater core cover, remove the heater core. Installation is reverse of removal. Sounds easy but it can be a lot of work but it is a lot easy than pulling your entire dash. Don't forget to reservice your radiator fluid and have your air conditioner reserviced. You'll save a lot of money following these procedures. Good Luck!
