Default Heater Core for 1998 Cherokee

I am trying to replace the heaater core in my 1998 Jeep Cherokee. I have had several problems in following instrucitons receive, as nothing seem to match what I have. I have had to remove the entire dash, not just the "lower instrument panel". The illustrations and pictures of the housing for the core does not match what I have. Mine seems much more complicated. Is there somewhere where I can get an accurate description of what I need to do? Chilton and Haynes are no help, and what I got from the internet is also different. I don't usually have this kind of problem. This one has me baffled. Can somebody point me in the right direction? I have the dash and the console out already.

1996 Cherokee

what i did was take off the lower dash, take off the nuts the hold the steering column from the dash and let rest on the seat, take the radio, hvac controls, and the center consol out. then take off the glove box door and the thing that runs along the windsheild. take both kick panels outand unbolt the dash. in the engine bay take the hoses off and disconnect the ac lines(after evacuating refrigerant) take out the nuts for the heater box. then move the dash just enough to get the box out. this way you dont have to disconnect every thing reverse all this to put it back together

Default Question

I have the dash off as you see in the pictures. How do I get the air handler which contains the heater core out?
