Yes you need to remove the fan. I believe the fan is bolted by 10mm small bolts to the top of your radiator. Remove your transmission lines, drain the radiator, remove the hoses and overflow hose, unplug the fan, remove it, and you're left with the 2 brackets on the front crossmember on both sides of your hood latch. Remove the 2 brackets and your radiator should lift right out
Good luck!

When i leave my grand vitara on idle it pumps all coolant out of the rad into over flow bottle

Is your cooling fan coming on? Make sure that it is. If not check fuses, relay and fan. The fan should come on and draw air through the radiator to cool the coolant if this isn't happening then the vehicle will overheat and as the coolant expands in an effort to relief the pressure the valve on the radiator cap will allow coolant to exit the radiator and go into the reservoir. This would be a good time to service your thermostat and change the radiator cap

Grand vitara radiator over heating

I have had brand new Thermostats that are bad. The way to check a thermostat is to boil it in water and see when it opens. You may need to have your radiator cleaned or roded out. You can also remove your thermostat and see what happens then I would start by flushing the system and see what you get.

Water leak/waterpump problem

The water pump is where the alternator pulley and radiator fan is connected. It has a hole on its body called "weep hole". If the seal and bearings are already worn out, coolant can be seen leaking at this hole. To replace it, you will have to remove the upper radiator hose, the fan blades, and the alternator pulley. Just unbolt the old one, clean the mating surfaces, install a new gasket, then install the new pump.

Vitara 1.6 cuts out

Are you quite sure it is not overheating? Your mention of heavy traffic, ie. stop and go, would tell me that your radiator fans are not working. I had a car with bum electric radiator fans. It worked fine if it was moving a lot. But in slow traffic, it would get warm enough to have a vapor lock or something without setting the engine-hot light.

Installing water pump in suzuki vitara

I don't have an answer for you but maybe a solution. Other than having a shop manual you could try the library. In most cities there is a service that is free at the library. It's called "Alldata" and it is the same system that shops pay to subscribe to. It will tell you in detail how to get the pump out and back in.
