You have to remove the bumper and remove the radiator from the front, first time I did it it took me many hours but with practice, I replaced mine thrice and might have to again, it goes quickly. Is your car an auto because there is a auto trans cooler that you have to disconnect.

    Clarification: You must undo screws in the front but the rad comes out under the hood.

Have a Peugeot 406 1.8 petrol LX on a 52 plate. Smell of coolant in the cab, no visible leak, top radiator hose hot, both hoses to heater matrix hot, bottom radiator hose cold. Air con works fine.


it could be a slight leak from the heater matrix (check for damp in the passanger foot well) its self or the thermostat may be sticking this may cause the bottom hose to stay cold. you could try removing the thermostat and running it without it and then putting a rad weld in the coolant system to seal the matrix.


let me know if this helps

Looking to flush my radiator and cant find the drain plug


The drain plug is generally near the left hand side of the car. If you can't find it, you could always remove the lower radiator hose. It will send a lot of coolant out in a hurry, but you'd still be able to flush it safely that way. I hope this helps

I need to replace my radiator is this a complicated procedure for me a novice?


Not at all its very basic With the engine cold remove the lower rad hose and drain the coolant {this can be recycled by straining it with a fine screen {panty hose works fine]remove the top hose and loosen the rad mounts.Make shure the ign is off and remove the rad cooling fan and ac bolts [if fitted].remove the thermostat and flush the system with a regular garden hose until its clean.You should replace the thermostat with a new one [only a couple of bucks but a must do on an older car]
fit the new rad [tip last off -first thing on]and connect the hoses refill and top up your coolant.Start your car and allow to reach normal working [let it idle until the rad fan cuts in and out a few times and hey presto yoy saved yourself money and repaired your own vehicle [well done]

Leak at top hose at radiator


When cooled down & pressure relieved, Drain rad down below if not already below that fitting, and remove it and have a look. It may be a simple as cleaning rad inlet & inside of hose and attaching new clamp & tightening. if hose very spongy feel (weak) replace it now, and save trouble down the road.top up rad & return bottle as necessary.

Replacing the radiator system for nissan altima 1998


Drain coolant from the cooling system. White plastic drain plug in bottom of radiator.

take off bottom rad. hose and top rad hose.

All wrenches and sockets are either 10 or 12 mm. Remove air shroud from around radiator and fan.
Sometimes its easier to remove fan too.

If its an automatic, remove 2 rubber hoses at bottom of rad.

remove 4 bolts top and bottom that hold rad. in place.

reverse order of parts. Fill with coolant and check for leaks.

That is the basics of it.

Radiator removal


hi bricko
im dave
its generally quite easy
1. disconnect the cable from the negative side of the battery.
2. drain the coolant from the rad using the plastic draincock at the bottom left or right of the rad. If it is less than 1-2 years old save and reuse it.
3.remove any parts that may be in the way of removing the rad and fan.
4.disconnect the coolant resorvoir hose at the rad cap and remove reorvoir if it is the way of removal.
5. disconnect the connector on the fan.
6. remove the screws that hold the rad to the top crossmember of the car.
7.if your car has a block heater remove the wire or reposition it
8.remove the plastic crossmember from the top of the rad if so equipped.
9.at this point you may have to remove or reposition the air cleaner assembly.
10.disconnect the two or four metal transmission cooler lines found on the left and/or right sidewalls of the rad. Plug the metal lines with plastic plugs available at any hydraulic supply store or use pieces of cut rag and elastic bands or twist ties to prevent contamination and loss of transmission fluid.
11.Loosen the hose clamps and remove the upper and lower radiator hoses. If they dont pull of easy you grasp them with a pair of slip joint pliers and twist back and forth until the seal breaks. Be careful not to crush the plastic fittings that the hoses slide onto. If the hoses are fairly old or deteriorated at all it might be easier to just cut them off and buy 2 new hoses. The new hoses will be a very tight usually and you may have to boil the ends for a couple of minutes to make them pliable. Also if the hose clamps are the type you need pliers to remove you might like to replace with the screw type for future ease of removal.
12.Remove any clips or screws holding the fan module onto the rad remove.
13. If the a/c filter/drier is attached to the radiator remove the screws attaching it and support it in its current position.
14.this same filter/drier might also be attached to the fan module so check that before completing step 12.
15.lift the radiator from the engine compartment and be careful not to spill residual fluid on the paint as it corrosive. Clean any spills immediately. dont scratch the vehicle either and try not too bang or distort any cooling fins. they are very fragile.
16. post me as to why you would want to remove the rad anyway.
17. check the condition of the rubber rad mounts and replace if deteriorated
18.clean the area around and under the rad/rad mounts of mud and gravel
19. After reinstalling the rad fill with the proper mixture of coolant and wait for the car to reach normal op temp and refill as needed. check for leaks at the draincock, hoses, and transmission lines. with the car idling at op temp check the transmission fluid level. Before checking however it is important to cycle through the gears. this is for automatic vehicles only.
