the heater core is located on the passenger side of the vehicle below where you would normally find the glove box. it is inside the black plastic shroud or cover that is mounted to the fire wall. there is also a small motor that opens and closes a flap that directs cold or warm air to the various vents in the cabin. the hearter core hoses must be disconnected at the firewall (engine side). it's quite laborious to remove.

There is no short cut or fast way to do this. The dash has to come out to access the heater box and replace the core. So the steps in replacing the heater core are to disconnect the heater hoses, remove the dash, to access the heater core cover on the front of the heater case and replace the core. Reassembly is in the reverse order as disassembly. Fill the cooling system with new coolant, and burp the air form the cooling system.
