Guardiola, 42, who spent four seasons as the boss of Barca until 2012, will replace Heynckes at the Bayern helm in the summer.
However, despite the fact that Guardiola would possess a good knowledge of the Catalan outfit from a tactical point of view, Heynckes has revealed that he will not be calling upon the Spaniard's expertise.
"Barcelona have dominated European football over the past few years. They have a philosophy which is unique to them," he told reporters.
"I have respect for Josep Guardiola and we have a very good relationship. I don't need any information from him, though, because I know Spanish football and Barcelona very well."
The two teams will meet in Germany for the opening leg tomorrow night.
