Heater failed, advice?

So my 95's heater core is toast, i hear the waterfall and see coolant on my passenger side.

question 1: Does anyone know of a How-to to replacing heater cores? i searched and didnt come up with anything, maybe there is a different website someone knows about with one, im new to jettas.

Question 2: would bypassing the heater core be an acceptable temporary fix seeing that it is summer now and i wont need heat? or could that complicate something else, i cant imagine it causing much harm.

It is a bone stock Jetta GL auto.

any advice is much appreciated!

i've been working on these things forever and i dread putting heater cores in the mk3 jettas. just bypass it and save up $$ til fall comes and by then you should have the $$ to pay someone to do it.
