Heater Core?

Was wondering if anyone could help me out! Need to replace the heater core and was wondering if someone could explain to me how to get the dash out? I have got the instrument panel out, bottom of dash below steering wheel, and around the glove box. Where do I go from there? Its on a 99 Grand Cherokee Laredo.

I fixed it Saturday morning. I went to Oreillys and bought the Haynes Repair Manual. It is very informative and got me thru it. Only took me 8.5 hours by myself. The manual cost $26.99 plus tax. The heater core was $74.99 plus tax and the labor cost nothing except my time. All in all I saved $300 by doing this myself.
