Hi Brandon, I'm glad to help!
Brandon, after you remove the upper and lower hoses to the radiator and remove the condensor from the radiator. NOTE: Raise the vehicle and put it on safety stands. You will need to raise it as high as possible. NOW, from under the vehicle take off the 2 brackets that hold the radiator and drop the radiator downward and out of the vehicle, sound odd I know but yes the radiator comes out from under the vehicle. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Brandon.
you should have 2 bolts holding the top that are in a rubber washer , the bottom just has glide points that slide into a sleeve, I know on a earlier model that there is a cover plate with 3 #10 small bolts that cover the 2 you need to remove to get the radiator out,, remove the upper and lower hoses first , then take the hold down bolts out of the top, it should slide up to remove
It's not difficult, but before you do you might invest $15 and buy service manual. Autozone, Advance, any good parts stores carry Haynes or Clymers manuals. Both give great step by step and tools needed to do the job correctly.
#1) You'll want to get a Drain pan place it underneath where your raditors bottom radiator hose is at.
#2) Now Jack your car up to give you easy access to the bottom of your Radiator.Secure your Car with Proper Jack Stands.
#3) Now remove the radiator support sheild if Equipted with one.
#4) Remove the Lower Radiator Hose =Loosen hose Clamp and work the Lower Radiator hose off.Note: this is when you'll need to have your drain pan underneath where it can catch the Coolant when you remove the bottom hose.
#4) If you have a Automatic Transmission, You'll need to Remove the 2-Transmission cooling lines at the bottom of the Radiator:( Use a Flare Wrench if you have them)
#5) Now Lower your Vehicle,and remove the TOP Plastic Fan Shroud ,and you should have a radiator Brace thats is Diaganal remove it.
#6) Now remove the Coolant recovery Line from the Radiator.Its the smaller hose that runs to your Recovery Resevoir.
#7) Now you'll need to remove the 2-Side (PLASTIC) Panels that are part of Shroud.
#8) If nessessary now Remove the Retaining Bolts that hold the Radiator to your A/C Condenser.
Your Radiator should be FREE to Replace with a NEW one.
To INSTALL Just Reverse the Uninstall procedures.
I hope this has Answered and Solved your Questions and got your radiator out and ready to install your new one. If thats why your removing it.

Hi: You'll first want to Drain your Radiator take your radiator cap off so when drain it the coolant will drain freely.Then Drain your raditor you'll find a Drain Tee outlet on the inside bottom of your radiator. And catch the Coolant in a Drain Pan. Standing in Front of your Vehicle you'll see a Hose connected to your Radiator(UPPER RADIATOR HOSE) take your Hand and follow it down to your Engine until you locat a Hose Clamp Remove the hose clamp and work off the top Radiator Hose.Where you removed the hose theres a Dome Shaped Metal Housing,with 2 bolts in it. Take those 2-Bolts out and Remove the Dome Thermastat Housing,Under it You'll Find your Thermostat it shuold come out with a little Resistance. Once its out, Clean Up The Thermastat Dome of any Gasket still left on it, and clean where you remove the Thermastat Surface.To put back just Reverse the Removal Be-sure your Thermastat is put in right and not up side down.Then get some Gasket Sealer Put a Little on the Thermastat Housing where gasket goes and some on the Enging surface and Install your New Thermastat,Be careful when Tightening the 2-Bolts on The Housing. not to Over tighten them.The torque Specs on the 2 bolts range between 10- 15 Foot pounds.You don't want to Strip,
After you get your New Thermastat in and your Radiator Hose on and Clamped.Make Sure you have closed the Drain outlet. then fill with coolant,if your coolant is old i recommend putting new coolant in. I hope this helps You.I;m Sure it Will, But please let me Know through FIXYA by Voting and a Testamony.This way I'll know that my solution was Helpful. Thanks From d_hubbs
Ahh. These are very easy to do. 1. Drain the sytem througn either the petcock on the bottom of the radiator or just removing the lower hose 2. remove the outer shroud by spinning the round part of the housing until it unlocks(about 1 inch rotation)push the shroud forward over the fan and leave there 3. remove the inner shroud by removing the 2 metal side clips(with a screwdriver usually)and pull up 4. remove the 2 transmission cooler lines underneath(either 17 or 19mm) 5. remove the 2 radiator hoses. 6. remove the 2 metal clips on top of the radiator. That's it!! Put in your new radiator. Make sure you turn the heater on while you are filling the system so it help to bleed the entire system. I love these 126 body cars. Let me know if you need anything else!
its very simple. just remove the top shroud. then there should be two bolts on top holding the radiator secure, remove any fans, pull back the hoses, there might be some ol lines to the radiator (pull those to) everything goes back the same way
