88' F150 heater core
 
My 88 ford F150 has taken to leaving puddles of coolant on the passenger side floorboard. I assume this means I need a new heater core.

Does anyone know how big a job this is? Its a 6 cyl, w/AC. I am more than happy to tackle it if it isn't too involved, but if it means removing the dash, dropping the column etc., I may just leave it to my mechanic.

Any input would be appreciated.

There is good info on how to get heat back in F-150 without paying a fortune or pulling the dash. Details are listed at www.rcsefi.org/F-150_Heater.html
