Heater core replacement. 1998 Ranger 3.0

Hey guys, long time no talk. Recently my heater core in my Ranger took a dump. I need to replace it as it is still cold in CT. How hard are these to replace??? Has anyone done it and can anyone offer any tips and hints??? I need to do this Monday, as it seems to be a heat wave day in ct, a whole 42 degrees.

yep, gotta pull the dash.

i would disconnect the steering shaft right near the floor board on the inside, and the wiring at the firewall. from there, there are 1 or 2 bolts on the passenger door jam, and same on the driver's. i can't remember exactly how many. something is telling me two. they are large and gold colored. pop the defrost panel off at the windshield, and there are three or four more bolts up there. pull the a-pillars, and you should be able to slide the dash back and set it on the seats. i wouldn't take anything else apart unless you have to.
