Having problems with your 1998 Chevrolet Lumina ?

My heater will only blow cold air. I thought that my thermostat needed changing but How do you get to it without tearing everything apart? Please, I need some help... This isn't the 60's models that I'm used to. Those were to good old autos that were fairly simple. I need an idiot proof information, please help. Thanks 1998 chevy lumina

If it's a 3.1 liter good luck. me being a skilled mechanic can get it out fairly easy, by just taking the top housing bolt out with a socket and the bottom with a wrench. then you have to be easy and turn the thermostat a certain way to get it out. if not you'll have to pull the exaust cross over pipe to do it.
