Get a manual it's to lengthy to pu t on here. The dash has to come out first anyhow and may be above your capabilities. Manuals can be rented here for a week so you can print everything out

If the hvac isn't out of the car you are stuck because it's going through the firewall an dthere maybe a screw holding it in. Otherwise check for screws then pry up on it you are going to replac eit anyhow so if you damage who cares. Then you can see what you bent.

You are trying to pull it out without having the module out it has to come out so the a/c charge has to be recycled as well. Seepic these are in engine compartment you have to get the module out to get the heater core out.
