I have tried so hard to get my 91 S10's dash out. I removed all visible bolts and took apart more than what i knew i had to. My heater core is broken and i have to get to it by removing the dash so i can replace it and save some money on labor parts, if anyone can help me out that would be awsome. or even know a book or someplace with good directions on how to. thanks

Heater cores are a pain in the ass. I had to do mine a few months ago. The hard part is putting the dash back together. Replacing the heater core only took me 10 min, but like an hour and a half just to put the damn dash back together.

well when i finally got down to it it was easy, but i ended up just replacing the heater hoses to the engine and the radiator and then after that it was just a quest to find out which bolt goes where and i have a little cup of bolts as leftovers and a scar from pinching myself, damn what a weekend (but now i have heat!!)

not everything, but enough to make it a pain in the ass :D I changed out the heatercore in my '85 in a couple hours. And like Jasdawg said, only had to pull the glovebox insert to get at the top screws. I'm not sure about the '86 and up, but I think you do hafta pull the dash.
i just pulled the whole thing, i painted it too
