Our bus has an access panel on the outside under the drivers window that allowed me to access the hose and wire connections. First thing, be sure to shut off the valve that supplies the coolant lines back to the heaters. As a temporary fix, I disconnected one hose, cut the other hose off at about 16 inches, then attached it to the other pipe. Basically I just made a u-bend out of a piece of hose so that all of the coolant would not run out. But be prepared, you will probably have a lot of coolant run out of the lines that go back to the heaters.
Next thing was to actually remove the heaters themselves. Mine had a metal channel running down the inside wall of the bus with the hoses and wires running in it. I removed all of the screws holding the channel in place, then removed the channel. It was basically just pieces of metal that were in place to protect the lines. Then I cut hoses at the heaters and then lifted the heaters out. I chose to cut the hoses because I was unable to get them to pull off, and the hoses looked like they had been leaking as well. That was basically it. I am definitely not an expert, but let me know if you have any questions and I will be glad to advise.
