You have to remove the alternator and the bracket that holds the alternator. When you remove the bracket be very careful. the inlet and outlet for the heater core run through this bracket. Once you remove the 3 bolts holding it you'll need to work it back and forth as you pull. Do not try to pry or force it because you'll break off the outlet pipe that leads in to the engine block. The pipe is sealed with an o-ring. If it's real stubborn shoot a little wd-40 on it and that should help make it easier to pop out.

Removal NOTICE: While repairing the power steering system, care should be taken to prevent the entry of foreign material or failure of the power steering components may result.
Using a suitable suction device, remove the power steering fluid from the reservoir.
With the vehicle in NEUTRAL, position it on a hoist. For additional information, refer to Section 100-02.
This is actually not too difficult.
I recommend replacing the upper, and lower radiator hoses while you are replacing the radiator if they are getting old.
1. Disconnect the battery.
2. Remove radiator fan (Some had two 10mm bolts at the top, and slots at the bottom, others had two more 10mm bolts on the bottom.) - And unplug the electrical connector.
3. Disconnect transmission lines (you will loose a bit of fluid)
You may also have two engine oil cooler lines that need removing (Also may loose some oil)
4. Remove upper and lower radiator hoses, and the overflow jug hose.
5. Unbolt radiator (should have two 8 or 10mm bolts connecting it to the radiator support near the top of the radiator)
6. Pull radiator up and out.
7. Reverse for reassembly
8. Refill radiator, I usually leave the top radiator hose loose while filling to remove air bubbles in the engine. - reconnect upper hose when fluid starts to get close to the radiator inlet. Some of these engines have a small brass air bleeder near the thermostat housing to accomplish this in a different way. Also fill the overflow jug about half way.
9. Check transmission, and engine oil. - Run engine, and watch for any leaks. - Recheck antifreeze just to be sure. Obviously don't open the radiator cap when the engine is hot.
You need to raise and support the vehicle high enough to remove the radiator from the bottom. Drain the coolant. Disconnect the coolant hoses from the radiator. Disconnect and remove the fan shroud assembly. You can leave the wiring attached to the fan shround. There are a couple electrical plugs to disconnect and a ground wire near the passenger headlight that needs to be disconnected. There are two mounts on the bottom of each side of the radiator and a bolt on either side of the fan side near the top. You'll also need to unbolt the A/C condensor from the bottom edge of the radiator and support it out of the way. Be careful not to snag the radiator on the condensor or it may cause a leak. If the car has an automatic trans, disconnect the trans fluid lines from the radiator.
Remove the drive belt.
Disconnect the two hoses (one pressure, one return) from the pump... catching the contents of the pump's reservoir with a pan under the vehicle. Crowfoot six-point fitting wrenches are strongly suggested for removing the hoses.
Unbolt the pump from its bracket.
Remove the pump.
Replace with a new or rebuilt or salvage pump, reversing these steps.
After refilling the reservoir to the full mark, start the engine and turn the steering wheel fully against both right and left stops several times to bleed air out of the system. Top off the reservoir to the full mark again.
With a 4.0-remove the air filter housing and unbolt the ECM (located under the air housing). I did not unbolt the harness connector to the ECM, I just moved to out of the way, but if you do decide to remove it, disconnect the battery first. Remove the rubber cover above the radiator, and unbolt the brackets above the radiator. Remove the headlights (both sides) to gain access to the bolts that hold the AC condenser to the radiator, then remove the lower air dam. Drain the radiator (drain plug is on the lower corner, driver side), it is somewhat easier if you remove the air intake grill on that side which is held in place by two screws. Unbolt the bolts that hold the radiator in place to the radiator frame, then unhook the top and bottom radiator hoses at the clamps. Unhook the harnesses from the fan radiators, and lift out the assemblies as a unit, it is a tight fit. From another user on Fixya.
Not that easy to change. You may need a crow's foot wrench on the fitting where the PS hose connects to the rack and pinion-on the car frame member behind the transaxle. Raise the driver front of car on stands, remove wheel. PS hoses, the pressure line and the return line, both connect at about the same place on the rack and pinion unit. See if you can get a regular wrench on the hose in question, and loosen it. If you can, (use rags or a can to catch leaks), then take off the hose in question up top on the PS pump, or on the PS reservoir. The pressure hose comes from the pump. The return hose goes to the reservoir-or some just both go to the pump and reservoir, if it's a single unit. Suction out the fluid from reservoir before removing hose, or you will have a big mess to clean up afterward. If loosened from top and bottom, there should be a hose holding bracket on the backside of engine or transmission. Good luck.
you will need to unbolt everything from the radiator. Shroud, electric fan, water overflow if it's located there. disconnect the radiator hoses top and bottom (make sure it's not hot from running all day) disconnect the transmission lines (use tape so you know where they go back on the new one. Now there should be 2 sometime 4 bolts at the top holding the radiator in. the bottom usually just sit's in a cradle but may be bolted in. Lift it out once it's free. reverse these steps to install the new one and top off all fluids
