I have no way to recover coolant if they have to be disconnected. Just trying to save some $$

Do you
have the same problem?

No, the heater/ac unit must be removed together as it is a full dash removal.

The freon has to be discharged for removing the heater core. You should get someone with appropriate recovery equipment to perform the job.
