Oh and don't forget to remove the heater door control motor connector before removing heater door, it'* not long enough to be disconnected after pull out.

Its not on the pics. Its on the missing heater door. It attaches to the white rod in front of the heater core. Youll have to disconnect that too, forgot to mention it

the procedure says to take the glove compartment out by removing three screws under the door that comes open, and the whole compartment with two vent ducts comes out

Just breathe while you do it. I had a few panic attacks along with discouragement when I did it, but it'* actually pretty simple. Standing your ground as to not wanting to pay someone to do it WILL help! The only hard part is understanding the sequence of dismantling because you can't see your hardware as easily as when doing "standard" mechanics (imho) but nothing (except putting new heater core and removing heater hoses) is hard, it'* tiny screws and plastic clips and connectors.

Actually, it'* not putting the new heater core that'* hard, it'* putting the door back on. The new heater core will go right in.
