i cant remember if i removed all the ac stuff but most of it, and yes for me i had to take the center console and dash out, if i dont ill have busted up knucles the next day, haha....

ive had people tell me though when i posted about heater core install that the dash can just be proped up and not fully removed, so whatever you feel comfortable with id say do it

the center console must come out... for ease of the job i suggest taking the seats out then pull as many screws/bolts that hold the frame to the body that u can find and wiggle the dash then find more it is not nessassry to take the dash completely out if u can peel it back about a foot u can change the heater core.

I unbolted the steering wheel shaft and unbolted the dash enough so that it would lean enough to work around. I left the seats in so I could have something to sit in while I worked. I never disconnected my ac lines. and there was a tab I had to bend on the fire wall tho. To make it eaiser work on the dash & console and steering wheel shaft the night before, its a huge PITA but you save aloooooot of money doing it yourself.

Some one that works at auto zone was telling me I was doing it the hard way and said the core can slide out of the glove box, but I think he was thinking about the 84 style mustang.

yes they were wrong at autozone they must have been thinking of another car, however my 90 f150 i just got i had to replace heater core and i was able to do it via the glove box, was a 30 minute job, i wish they all were that easy...

if your car is a 95 model as your name suggests, you might want to read my heater core swap sticky in the 96-98 modular section, as they are the same body style
