I didn't find it necessary to disconnect the hoses from 
underneath the dash to remove the heater box.  They aren't hooked on 
with any sort of clasp, so they just "come off" when you pull the box 
out.  How I'm going to get mine back in once I'm done, I have no idea.  
If I get mine in before you, I'll let you know what I had to do.  
Otherwise, let me know...
