HEATER CORE REPLACEMENT

1991 Mercury Tracer

Heater problem
1991 Mercury Tracer 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 75000 miles

According to my Chilton's manual, there are only 8 steps to the point of removing the housing unit.
But, there is nothing in the manual about what other components have to be removed.
My question is how many other components must be moved out of the way in order to get the housing unit out?
