How do I remove radiator to a 2000 buick century custom


Most radiators have a fan bolted to the front which needs to be unbolted and removed. Drain the radiator with the drain plug in the bottom, then remove the upper and lower hoses. Next remove the bolts holding the radiator to the frame ( there will probably be about six: two at the top, two half way down, and two on the bottom. Sometimes there are only the two on the top and the radiator sits into little cups. In which case, after removing the bolts juts pull up and out.

HOW TO CHANGE HEATER CORE IN 2000 BUICK CENTURU


Instructions
  1. Removing the Heater Core
    • Lift the hood and prop it open. Makes sure the engine is cold. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench or box wrench. Avoid using open-end wrenches on the battery terminals, as they tend to strip the bolt heads.
    • 2Place a drain pan under the radiator. Open the radiator cap. Open the radiator drain on the bottom of the radiator and the two coolant drains near the oil pan. You can reuse the coolant unless it appears cloudy and contaminated. Close all three drain openings once all the coolant has drained from the system.
    • 3
    • Disconnect the inlet and outlet hoses of the heater core inside the engine compartment using a socket wrench. Be prepared to catch or wipe up any coolant that drips from these hoses. Drain the coolant from inside the heater core.
    • 4Unscrew and remove the lower instrument panel sound insulator from below the dashboard on the passenger side. Use a socket or screwdriver to loosen and remove the screws on the heater flooricon1.png outlet. Remove the clips and take out the duct.
    • 5Loosen and remove the screws holding the heater core cover in place. Remove the cover.
    • 6Remove the retaining bolts holding the heater core in place. Remove the heater core.
    Installing the Heater Core
    • 7Position the replacement heater core and secure the retaining bolts. Put the cover back on the heater core and reattach the screws and clips.
    • 8Reinstall the floor outlet duct with its screws and clips, followed by the lower instrument panel sound insulator.
    • 9Reconnect the inlet and outlet hoses to the heater core In the engine compartment.
    Refilling the Cooling System
    • 10Tighten all of the drains. Fill the radiator up to the base of the radiator neck with antifreeze, reusing the old coolant if it's cleanicon1.png. Fill the coolant overflow tank up to the "FILL" mark.
    • 11Reconnect the negative cable on the battery and start the engine, making sure you leave the radiator cap off. With the engine idling, look into the radiator and notice that the coolant level has dropped. Add coolant until the level is back up to the base of the radiator neck. Add coolant to the "FILL" mark on the overflow tank. Put the radiator cap on, making sure the arrow on it points to the overflow tank.
    • 12Squeeze the large return hose leading to the top of the radiator with the engine still running. The hose should begin to feel hot, indicating that the thermostat has opened and is functioning properly.
    • 13Check for leaks in the cooling system.

I have a 1999 vw passat and i need to remove the radiator in order to change the fan. how do i remove the radiator?


Well, there is a catch 22 to your plan. In order to remove the radiator you have to remove the fan first. Check around the housing for the fan, you should find plastic pressure clips that hold the fan in place. Release the clips and you should be able to lift the fan housing and shroud out or drop it through to the bottom of the vehicle. To remove the radiator you have to remove the fan shroud and fan in order to locate and remove the retaining bolts for the radiator. There are usually 2 on the bottom of the Radiator sometimes accessible from the bottom of the vehicle and 2 near the top of the radiator, usually covered by the fan shroud.

How do you drain the radiator fluid in a 01 jetta


Remove the coolant res cap. This step helps to drain...

Remove the belly pan

In the lower drivers' side of the rad there's a drain. Get yourself a piece of tubing, fuel line or equiv. that will fit over the outlet. Turn the knob and pull out a little. Coolant should flow, don't expect it to flow too fast cause' it won't

First, remove the grille, then the top panel. Remove the viscous coupling and fan. Remove the top radiator mounts, Remove the coolant hoses and oil pipes, remove 4 bolts holding the A/C and intercooler/or PAS radiators (depending if yours is diesel or petrol.) then lift up and out the radiator. Fitting is reversal of removal.
Hope this helps

I can not figure out how to remove the alternator from a 2000 caravan w/3.3l engine. Alternator is free but I can not contort it out of the engine compartment? Any help please! Thanks Greg


I have recently done this twice to my 2000 Grand Caravan with the 3.3l engine.
1) Remove the top plate which is attached to the alternator mounting bracket held in by 3 bolts.
2) remove the alternator bolts securing the altenator to the mounting bracket.
3) pry the alternator off the bottom mounting bracket
4) turn the alternator around show you can easily see the power wires on back of the alternator and remove the 11/32 nut holding the wire to the alternator. Be careful not to drop the nut behind the engine, because you probably will never find it (experienced).
5) Disconnect the wires from the alternator
6) Remove the black cooragated tube running vertical in front of the alternator and remove the tubes hold clip from the suspension wall.
7) Slide the alrernator pully first up through the opening. You may need to rotate the alternator a little so it fits up through.

Cant find the thermostat on a 1998 jetta


The thermostat is located on the bottom of the water pump on the front of the engine. The lower radiator hose connects to it. You must remove the lower radiator hose. Then remove the slide clip from the plastic tube on the thermostat housing. Remove that plastic tube. Now remove the side cover in the passenger side wheel well. Then remove the 5 bolts holding the power steering pump on and then remove the power steering belt. Now swing the power steering pump to the side. you will now be able to access the two 8mm bolts holding the thermostat in place. And there ya go. Be careful if you snap those 8mm bolts on the thermostat you are gonna have to replace the housing. And you don't want to remove the water pump to do that. Trust me. ; )
