          I’ve done this twice I found removal / replacement of the centre consul the worst bit. Just take photos on your phone as it’s a time consuming job but not hard.
          The best advice I can give you is fit a genuine ford core and the inline flow reducer I didn’t the first time hence having to do the job twice.

            Yes it's a nightmare but we finally got the heater core out and replaced it with a new one yesterday, now the fun part putting it all back. How fun,not. We are ordering a new aircon package because we had to distroy the old one which didn't work for a few years which is good. Also replaced the mileage cogs on the speedo today. So hopefully will get the mustang back with everything working.

                Seems like sensible advice!
                On the upside you have learned something new and you car will now be working properly.

                  It seems like two decades makes no difference in this respect. I have an S550, but it also has a heater problem. The three round air vents on the dash, the left one hot, middle one luke warm at best, and the right one cold to freezing ( and it’s this one that hits your hand on the wheel ) . I was told by Ford that to rectify this the whole dashboard would need to be removed, at a cost of about 1000. It was an immediate no thanks from me. Now in the winter I simply close the middle and right hand vent, wear some gloves, and wait for summer to arrive. Big respect to anyone who can remove and refit a dashboard !
