If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core. When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired. Heater Housing * The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core. * Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of the car It therefore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement. The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core. Heater Core * Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core. * Remove the heater coolant hoses. * Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped). * Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps. * Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing. * To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps. When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation. I have included a picture diagram above. Good luck.
MAKE sure that is the problem.If heater is blowing cold air,reach on passenger side,under dash,and find the heater blower,and gently pull the white plastic piece to make sure it is not stuck on cold.They go from hot to cold easily but not back to heat.

are we sure it is smoke not hot anti-freeze mist leaking from heater core ? if it truly is smoke you have a shorted fan switch.
it isn't possible because heater is assembled behind cockpit i know it because i working at factory oof kiamotors Slovakia
....Well... as I have just found out.......you have to pull apart the whole dash... unscrew the steering wheel from the frame... take out the frame underneath the dash.... and then unscrew the heater side of the heater/ A/C unit. Then it comes out pretty easily. I just did it and it took me about an hour. The problem I have now is that I need to find a heater core... which has been a problem. I'm hoping that I can find one at the junk yard that will fit in my car...... and isn't damaged. I hope that helped.

The heater core is probably to blame, it has developed a leak.
