I have just discovered that there are som nuts that need to be removed which are located in the engine compartment. One is going to be difficult due to its location just behind the engine on its left side.
As you can see in the second photo even though they hold a component for the AC they need to be removed.
The console between the passenger and drive does need to be removed in order to get the air conditioning unit out. Also remove the braket on the hump holding the dash. If you leave it in it will make it more difficult and you will just have to remove it in the end. This was an experience but now there is no more antifreeze smell and foged up windows. Putting it back together was a breeze. Now on to recharging the AC unit.
I am getting ready to tear into my dashboard in the morning so I can change my heater core. I am already glad that I checked here first. I don't work on automobiles very often, so the tips I read here are going to be very handy. Keep 'em coming!
