the dash has to come out no two ways about it.

I just went through this nightmare with a 94 escort and it is a pain. The heater core is located in the worst possible location as the instrument panel, dash and trim, environment controllers have to be removed. The speedometer cable has to be disconnected from the engine compartment and from the instrument console. The biggest pain for me was trying to figure out where all the bolts are located that hold down the dash board. The 2 manuals I have only listed 4 bolts down below the console, and I had a hard time figuring out where the rest of them were. There are 2 bolts on each side next to the door fronts and 3 bolts right under the windshield that are accessed by removing the plastic defroster trim in front of the dash. It is held down by one central screw and a bunch of clips. I still have screws left over after putting things back together so try to document where everything comes from... Good luck
How yo take a heater core out of 2002 lincoln navigator with 5.8 engine and can you do it without removing inside dashboard?
No you must remove the dashboard. I just had it done on a 1996 Bravada and it cost me $450.00.
The heat exchanger is the most expensive part to replace in your heater. The recommended thing to do would be contact a professional and have it installed. Maintaining proper water chemistry is the key to not having to replace it again. I have seen them be ruined in less that a week due to improper balance. Find your owner's manual that came with the heater and they give explicit advice on taking care of your pool heater.
By taking out the back seat
Go buy a service manual. This procedure is difficult. It includes taking the whole dash off.
The heater fan should be under the passenger side dash.It usually requires taking out six 7 mil or 1/4" screws.Should take about 15 min
Be very careful when you disconnect them, stock heater core had plastic pipes , twisting or bending the hose can break the pipes, then you will have to replace the core. I just complted this job and it is not too bad if you have the right tech sources. If interested sign up for the online tech manual alldat.com. the cost is $14.95 a year but well worth it. Remove the two heater hoses at the firewall and flush the heater core through there.
No, there'no other way. If your car has no aircon the job is does not take to long and isn't too difficult - wth aircon that's another story... Alternatively you can bypass the heater element in the engine room, tricky because theres little space but possible

Keep the car's owner's manual handy. Remove the screws or bolts that hold the heater core in place. It may be that you need to remove more parts of the car in order to get to the heater core. Disconnect the intake and outtake hoses from the heater core. Remove the heater core from the car, taking special care to keep the core upright so no coolant spills out. Place the new heater core into the car, and reconnect the hoses as they were connected to the old heater core. Screw or bolt the new heater core into the car, and replace all the other removed car parts.
