    Removal and replacement of the heater core including evacuation and recharging the air conditioning is a huge job about 11 hours, not sure if you want to tackle this job yourself. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info or there is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You can get a one week subscription or year subscription very cheap. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online
    and get an online repair manual subscription.

    it would cost more than the car is worth.reroute your heater hoses into each other so no coolant reaches your heater core-of course your heater wont work any more.this can be a pain in the winter.
