What is the reason to change? Leaked heater core does not need to change always.
if the leaking is on the driver side then the only o rings need to be change if the on the passenger side then it need to be replaced.

It is quit a messy job, I recommend get it done by professional.

And if you are not living in cold area then block the pipes from back of the engine compartment (Like I did) and spent zero

Thanks for the "O-ring" info I'll check it out. Was expecting it to be a heater core replacement. I was getting coolant on the drivers side carpet. Will update on the findings and resolution.
