if you look at a couple youtube videos, they can give you a general idea of how some people attempt to fix their vehicles give you some suggestions

one guy says to take the heater hoses off near the water pump, instead of back against the firewall where there is really no room to move your hands or tools

most input heater hoses have a heater control valve in the line, most have a cable that opens & closes them, make sure it opens & closes

when you back flush the heater core, use safety glasses, & either air pressure or a garden hose, use only enough water pressure to see if you have any flow, catch the old fluid & gunk in a gallon milk jug or something that you can see into from the side

these vids are very informative
