New to me nitro with a couple issues

Hey everybody. I have foubd myself in possession of a 2008 nitro with the 3.7 and the 6 speed manual. I dig it, but its got a couple issues.

1. My heater doesnt work. Ok, it works for like 3 seconds before turning cold. A mechanic said that it either had to be the blend door or tge actuator for the blend door. My understanding is that to access these, i need to rip apart the dash. Is there a guide anywhere outlining how to get to this? Beyond that, how would i determine which piece of equipment is faulty?

2. The back brakes are questionable at best. Needs new pads and rotors. How do you remove the back rotors?
