TJ heater core removal -the hidden nut

Okay, that was a pain, but I just wanted to make a note for those that do this in the future. In the engine compartment, there are SIX nuts that must be removed, but only 5 studs to remove them from. One is hidden behind the "cowl plenum", aka the black plastic piece behind the engine block.

Remove the first nut (which is the worst part of the entire job, maybe a ratcheting wrench would make this easier). Then remove the cowl plenum, them remove the last nut. I stuck a magnet on the wall next to the stud to keep the nut from falling into the depths of a very right engine space. Good luck
