How to Replace a Radiator in a Toyota Tundra car?


The instructions to replace the radiator is as follows:--
1) Locate the radiator. For that remove the engine undercover. Beside the radiator there is a plug.Loosen the plug on the bottom of the radiator and drain the engine coolant into tray or bucket.Also disconnect the hose to the radiator reservoir, and take off the upper radiator hose and lower radiator hose
2) Then to remove the radiator.Look at the fan shroud and remove the bolts holding the radiator. Detach the clips holding the fan shroud and lift the radiator carefully out of the engine compartment.
3) The old faulty radiator which you want to remove is out now.
4) Put the radiator bracket hooks in the radiator support holes and install the new radiator in the reverse method of how you removed the old one out.

Can I replace the radiator on 2007 Impala without removing AC coolant hoses? If not, how do I remove and replace the AC coolant?


It is NOT necessary to remove the "A/C Radiator" (condenser) to replace the radiator. The condenser is mounted in FRONT of the radiator and the radiator is removed from the rear.

  • Drain the coolant from the radiator.
  • CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Always drain coolant into a sealable container.
  • Remove the engine mount strut. Some technicians will disconnect just one and swing the strut out of the way. In this case, loosen the through bolts to prevent shearing the rubber bushings when the strut is moved out of the way for radiator removal. In some cases, it is best to remove the strut and its mounting bracket completely.
  • Separate the cooling fan harness connector from the engine harness.
  • Separate the low coolant level module harness connector at the module.
  • Disconnect the radiator hoses.
  • Remove the cooling fan assembly from the vehicle.
  • Disconnect the automatic transaxle cooling lines from the radiator
  • There should be two small retaining brackets at both ends of the radiator that are removed.
  • Carefully lift the radiator up and out of the vehicle. Note that the bottom should have locating pins on each end which should fit into grommet-like rubber mounts at installation.
