You need to be able to pull the dash back far enough for access but the whole thing doesn't need to come out. Just pull it back far enough so you don't have to disconnect any wiring harness connectors. I don't think you need to fuss with the steering wheel, column, or airbags. Just need to pull the dash back far enough to get the heater enclosure apart and replace the heater core.
