heater core replacement

Anyone done one of these in their 9-5?
Mine went from "what's that smell?" to "why can't I see out the windows?"
in about 3 days, so I need to do it tomorrow. anyone know of a write-up or have general instructions?

I googled, and I've found that you have to take out the glove-box and the side console trim, and it's "right there", but I haven't found any photos or Vfaq.

I'm going to be doing this on my back in the snow... so the better I'm prepared, the....better.

Thanks guys!

It is very easy. Easiest heater core I've ever done. Basically you are right, glovebox and side trim, and there it is. Don't sweat it. Glovebox comes off to access the screws that hold the side piece on.

Nothing like a Ford expedition my friend and I did where the whole dash had to come mostly out.

Gf's is going in her 99. I will leave this here for future reference. Looks like this was well thought out. Probably because of how much of a PITA a 9000's is to do.
