2003 Chevy: 10 Pickup, Extended Cab, 4X4..heater core..Chevy S10

Resolved Question:

2003 Chevy S-10 Pickup, Extended Cab, 4X4. Working in home garage to replace heater core. We are following the directions in the Chilton Manual for Chevy S10 Trucks. The dash board, blower fan and overflow resevoir have been removed. All vacuum and electrical connections have been disconnected. Having difficulty removing the Heating/Ventilation module. The directions in the manual seem to be incorrect. Can not find all of the bolts to loosen the module from the firewall. Please explain how to remove the heating/ventilation module.
