Smile Not Head Gaskets..Heater core

So the two shop that I took it to told me it was the Head gaskets . WRONG! i took it to the Dealer and its the Intake Gasket and Heater Core. I previously posted two threads asking advice on the gaskets. The good news is that the Intake is still under warrenty! Question is How hard is it to do the Heater Core? Anyone have pictures or a good wed site that I can see the procedure to do it.

Doing the heater core is not a fun job, most of the dash has to come out to get to it. I don't remember the thread you mention, but what convinced them the heater core needs to be replaced?
