    '99 Heater core replacement

    Okay,

    I've got some time off and I'm gonna replace the driver's window motor and the heater core (small leak).

    I've got the GM manuals, but has anyone here done the heater core? I've heard it's pretty straightforward and can be done by removing the glove box.
    Any special tools needed?

    Local shop guy said $400 without blinking. My ass ... $40 part, $360 labor! Hell, I've got time. 1999 Z28 M6.

    Any help is appreciated.
