I hope you are young and limber.  That's a tight squeeze under there.  Be sure to stock up the garage refrigerator with plenty of beer.   :o

i didnt check out the link but heres another like to repair http://www.mustangsteve.com/heatercore.html  on this one you dont have to discharge the ac and you just cut the box open


one word of advice make sure to fluch the coolant system so the fluid doesnt eat your new core
