Trying to removal a heater core (96 Jimmy)

My husband is trying to remove the heater core from my vehicle & has removed most of the dash but is still unable to get to the heater core. Does anyone have instructions on how to remove the heater core on my 96 Jimmy??

Thank you,

I don't know if it's like my same situation with a 96 1500 van but it's a bear> I went to the library and the service manual states that I have to have the AC unit emptied and then remove the AC unit in front of the core hose connections. Plus, inside the core is burried behind wires, ducting, etc and thats after removing half the dash and disconnecting the airbag so that doesn't blow up in my face. GOOD LUCK!
