I believe a good process is the remove all the accessories and trim panels and the glove box first... then lower the steering column (battery should be disconnected or you risk triggering the air bag) and then unbolt it from the firewall. The dash top looks like it's a separate piece (it is, but...) however it is bolted to the lower portion from the inside; so don't try and pull it off. Once it's loose, ease it back so you can disconnect all the wiring and such and the heater core should be ready to be accessed.

I helped a guy replace his dash a couple years ago, and he didn't know about the screws that hold the lip down and he shattered it... made the rest of the removal easy, but he had to fork out for a new dash cap.

Best of luck.
