Need help replacing the heater core on a 1995 automatic

I need some help gentlemen. I'm told that the replacement was super easy. Have someone hold the heater core up under the dash while a partner bolts it in place with two nuts.

I quickly looked under my dash and saw no accessable view of my current heater core. I can't seem to find a way to remove all the plastic housing to get to it.

Any ideas? Anyone done this before? Is it difficult?

Thanks in advance,

1) Disconnect battery ground. Drain about 2 quarts of coolant
from radiator. Disconnect heater hoses at heater core inlet and outlet
tubes. Disconnect vent door cables. Disconnect blower motor wires.
Disconnect defroster duct.
2) Remove nuts attaching heater housing studs to engine
compartment side of dash panel. Remove heater housing assembly by
tilting it downward, to disengage it from defroster duct.
3) Pull heater housing rearward and out from under instrument
panel. Remove heater housing cover from heater housing assembly.
Remove heater core from housing.

hope this helps
