Thanks for posting the pics. How about doing a how-to to go along with them?

Oh boy , if that job doesn't look familiar . I've had to do mine twice . The first one I replaced was defective . I should of refused the part when I saw the box was damaged , but the core looked ok and even pressure tested out ok .

Thanks for posting the pics! I am tearing my 2003 apart to replace the heater core and was wondering if I had to split the plenum but your pictures show that I can slip the heater core out without splitting it.

I did a lot more dash disassembly than was necessary!!

finished reassembling mine today, works great. too bad the "engineers" don't plan for maintenance and make the core removable from the top so you can remove it without draining the A/C!!
