1986 Pontiac Bonneville heater core...Help

I have an '86 Bonneville, V6, 3.8 ltr with air conditioning. I am having a hard time locating a repair manual fot it. Does any one know anything about replacing the heater core, it is leaking and causing ym engine to run hot. It looks like it may be removed from under the hood, at least I hope so, but I am not sure. Anyone that can tell me for sure I would greatly appreciate

In all likelyhood his car is RWD which makes the procedure entirely different except for things that are common to all heater core replacements... Draining and filling coolant, disconnecting hoses, etc.

This is why people should be directed to the appropriate service manual when asking for procedural assitance of being spoon fed by well meaning but uninformed people such as yourself.

Thanks for the pic, jedimario.
