You must remove the entire front bumper and you will want to remove the radiator as well. There really isn't enough room there.
To remove the front bumper, there are plastic clips around wheel well and under the front bumper. Then there are a couple of bolts under the hood and two bolts on the side (look from wheel well up). The whole thing comes off as one piece.
I was able to move (twist) the A/C condensor out of the way and not drain it.

I had this problem about a year ago on my 2004 S Type diesel. It's not uncommon and the end result was that it's a wiring fault in the front wiring harness. This is a major hassle to fix and involves taking the fron bumper off. The Jag main dealer did this but the problem came back. I checked other forums and it seems there was a batch of rogue wiring harneeses which Jag bought cheap from Romania in 2004 and fitted to S types. These had moisture in them when manufactured so eventually most of the wires corrode over time - but from the inside! Jag know about this but will not fix under warranty. I ended up spending £1200 to have a whole new front wiring harness fitted - problems gone away now.
Note the radio security code, then disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove the bolt from the lower part of the bumper just in front of the wheel opening, and remove the self-tapping screw from the rear most portion of the bumper at the forward portion of the front wheel well.
On V6 Odyssey models, perform the following:
Remove the grille.
Remove the pins and clips from the lower front of the bumper.
On 4-cylinder Odyssey models, remove the bolts from the left and right side lower brackets for the bumper at the ends of the lower air intake.
Pull the ends of the bumper outward.
Have an assistant help guide the bumper up and away from the vehicle.
Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
There are 5 bolts holding the headlight assembly in place. 2 at the top and 3 underneath.
Remove the plastic cross piece by prising out the clips and then the grille clips too then unbolt the bolts eithr side under the wheel arch. The bumper is still fastened using cips. Pull the bumper forward to unclip.

2/ " the front of both inner wheel liners.
