Hello- Sorry, you will have to discharge the AC system to remove the combination heater core/evapotator box. Is your heater core leaking? If you live in a warm climate and don't need the heater right now, you can very easily bypass it. Just remove or cut the 2 heater hoses where they enter the firewall, and connect them together using a piece of tube and 2 clamps. They also sell a coupler at the auto parts store. If you wish to replace the heater core, instructions can be had here on pages 49-50 - Heater Core Replacement
Hope this helps, please ACCEPT this answer- Thanks- Hanz
