tried almost everything possible, and matter seems to have gotten from bad to worse. Ran Diskwarrior4 ... took like 3 days and 3 days later, decided to to a hard restart.

after hard restart, DW can no longer find the HD.

I don't think my HD is physically failing, so I'm thinking to remove the HDD from My Mac24 and replace it w/ a new one....I saw demo video online...seems easy enought but have to be extreamly careful.....

Anyone has experience taking the Imac apart? Any suggestions??

Depends on the model iMac which you do not provide and your HD seems to be dead, not failing. If you do a Google on take apart for your model iMac you will find tutorials. As a suggestion before taking the iMac apart, pop in disc one of the original install discs that came with the machine and run Apple Hardware Test extended. It will diagnose problems.
