Replacing the Heater Core

Over the last few days I've noticed the distinct smell of antifreeze coming from the A/C so I figure the heater core is going bad. Is there anything necessary needed to replace it? Also do the 4th gens require the removal of the dash in order to replace one like it some other cars?

Basically I'm trying to get an idea if I can do it myself on one of my days off or if I need to take it somewhere and spend insane amounts of money on labor to get it fixed.

According to my haynes manual only 2002 models require removing entire instrument panel and cowl bracing to access HVAC module.Other years is accessed through and under the glovebox. Glad I have a 2000.

Hmmm that sounds a little fishy. They are all right behind the glovebox.
