Ford Crown Victoria LX

Question: Procedure for removing and replacing the heater core. Some say the dash must be removed to get at it. Is that necessary or is there an easier way ?

I have a 99' Crown Vic, I'm attempting to install an aftermarket radio. I removed the factory radio no problem, installed the aftermarket and it did not even come on. I know the radio works because I just took it out of another car which I installed it in. When I couldn't get it to work I put the factory radio back in and now it want come on. Help please
