How to change radiator


Radiator REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Cirrus, Sebring Convertible, Stratus and Breeze CAUTION
Do not open the radiator draincock or remove the radiator cap when the cooling system is hot and under pressure. This can cause serious burns from hot, pressurized coolant. Allow a sufficient amount of time for the cooling system to cool down before opening up the system. NOTE: The radiator uses plastic tanks. Plastic tanks, while stronger than brass, are subject to damage by impact, such as slipped wrenches. Use care when working around these radiators.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the left strut tower. The ground cable is equipped with an insulator grommet, which should be placed on the stud to prevent the negative battery cable from accidentally grounding.
  2. Remove the air inlet resonator.
  3. Place a large drain pan under the radiator drain plug. Drain and properly contain engine coolant. NOTE: To open the drain plug on models equipped with a 2.5L engine, use a 3⁄8 inch drive extension 3 inches (7.6cm) long and a 19mm socket with universal joint. The drain plug can also be accessed by removing the right front fog light in the front lower bumper fascia.
  4. Remove the upper radiator crossmember as follows:
    1. Remove the push-in mounting fasteners securing the front fascia/grille unit to the radiator support crossmember.
    2. Remove the mounting bolts securing the support braces to the bottom of the crossmember.
    3. Remove the bolts securing the crossmember to the radiator closure panel.
    4. Remove the mounting nuts attaching the hood latch to the radiator crossmember. Remove the crossmember from the vehicle. Fig. 2: Using a small flat bladed tool, pry up the center portion of the plastic front grille/fascia retainers, then pull them out 90903p02.jpg
      Fig. 3: To aid in a straight reassembly, matchmark the washer screws to the radiator crossmember using a marker 90903p03.jpg

      Fig. 6: Remove the radiator support crossmember 90903p08.jpg
      NOTE: The following step and associated photos describe original type hose clamps. Some vehicles may instead have a worm gear type clamp, which can be loosened with a screwdriver.

  5. Using pliers, compress the tabs on each hose clamp, then slide the clamp a few inches away from the hose end. Carefully twist and pull the hoses from the radiator.
  6. Disconnect the engine block heater wire, if equipped.
  7. Disconnect and plug the transaxle cooler lines, if equipped.
  8. Remove screw attaching support bracket for external transaxle cooler lines to the left side of the radiator, if equipped. Fig. 7: Relieve the tension from the hose clamp, then disconnect the upper coolant hose at the radiator 90903p09.jpg
    Fig. 8: If equipped with an automatic transaxle, loosen the hose clamp and disconnect the transmission fluid cooler hose 90903p14.jpg

    Fig. 10: Disengaging the cooling fan electrical connector 90903p18.jpg

  9. Remove the screw attaching the support bracket for air conditioning lines from the right side of the radiator. Remove the support bracket.
  10. Unplug the cooling fan wiring.
  11. Remove the air conditioning condenser mounting screws. Use care when working around the air conditioning condenser. Avoid bending the condenser inlet tube. Care should be taken not to damage the radiator or condenser cooling fins or water tubes during removal. It is not necessary to discharge the air conditioning system to remove the radiator. Fig. 11: Access to the lower radiator cooling hose (1) and lower left side A/C condenser-to-radiator mounting fasteners (2) is possible after removal of the left fog light 90903p12.jpg
    Fig. 12: Access to the lower transmission fluid cooler line (1) and lower right side A/C condenser-to-radiator mounting fasteners (2) is possible after removal of the right fog light 90903p13.jpg
    Fig. 13: Remove the A/C condenser-to-radiator mounting fasteners 90903p16.jpg
    Fig. 14: Unclip the A/C line from the cooling fan module 90903p15.jpg
    Fig. 15: Remove the radiator assembly from the vehicle 90903p07.jpg

  12. Carefully remove the radiator from the vehicle. The cooling fan/shroud assembly can be separated from the radiator at this time. To install:

    3. Install and tighten the crossmember-to-radiator closure panel mounting bolts.
    4. Install and tighten the mounting bolts that secure the support braces to bottom of the radiator crossmember.
    5. Install the push-in mounting fasteners holding the front fascia/grille unit to the radiator crossmember.
  20. Connect the engine block heater, if equipped.
  21. Install the air inlet resonator.
  22. Fill the cooling system with the correct type and amount of engine coolant.
  23. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and allow it to idle until it reaches full operating temperature. Check the cooling system for correct fluid level and top off if necessary.

Replace brakelight in trunk of 300m


REMOVAL
NOTE: Some moisture accumulation inside a vented headlamp unit is normal. Moisture will vent from tubes or vents located on the back of the unit. This normal condition will appear as a fogging on the inside of the headlamp lens (similar to the fog that sometimes appears on the inside of the windshield). This moisture may be removed by activating the headlamps on high beam for 15 minutes.

If water droplets larger than 1 mm in size have accumulated on the inside of the headlamp lens, the headlamp unit should be replaced.

Replacing radiator 95 Jeep GC


No it is not difficult to replace a radiator it can be done with basic handtools I would not suggest a used radiator, if at all possible spend a little extra now and buy one with the best warranty (lifetime) available although with a new one you are looking at approx $250 plus coolant. Here is the proper procedure for replacment
Grand Cherokee
See Figures 9, 10 and 11
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Open the radiator valve and drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove the fan and shroud assembly.
0900c152800a9917.jpgFig. 9: Radiator and condenser mounting
  1. If equipped, disconnect the automatic transmission cooling line quick-fit connections.
  2. Matchmark the upper radiator crossmember and adjust the crossmember to the left or right.
0900c152800a9918.jpgFig. 10: Radiator upper crossmember assembly
  1. Eight clips are used to retain a rubber seal to the body. Gently pry up the outboard clips (2 per side) until the rubber seal can be removed. Do not remove the seals entirely. Fold back the seal on both sides to access the grille opening reinforcement mounting bolts and remove the bolts.
  2. Remove the grille.
  3. Remove the upper brace bolt from each of the 2 radiator braces.
  4. Remove the crossmember-to-radiator mounting nuts.
  5. Working through the grille opening, remove the lower bracket bolt securing the lower part of the hood latch or hood latch cable from the crossmember.
  6. Lift the crossmember straight up and position it aside.
  7. If equipped with A/C, remove the 2 A/C condenser-to-radiator mounting bolts which also retain the side mounted rubber air seals.
  8. If not equipped with A/C, remove the bolts retaining the side mounted rubber air seals compressed between the radiator and crossmember.
Note the location of the air seals. To prevent overheating, they must be installed in their original position.
  1. Disconnect the coolant reservoir/overflow tank hose from the radiator.
  2. Disconnect the upper hose from the radiator.
  3. Carefully lift the radiator a slight amount and disconnect the lower hose from the radiator.
  4. Lift the radiator up and out of the engine compartment, take care not to scrape the fins or disturb the A/C condenser if equipped.
If equipped with an auxiliary automatic transmission oil cooler, use caution during radiator removal. The oil cooler lines are routed through a rubber air seal on the left side of the radiator. Do not cut or tear this seal.
To install:
0900c152800a9919.jpgFig. 11: Radiator alignment dowels
  1. Lower the radiator into the vehicle. Guide the alignment dowels into the hoses in the rubber air seals and then through the A/C support brackets, if equipped. Continue to guide the radiator through the rubber grommets located in the lower crossmember.
If equipped with A/C, the L-shaped brackets, located on the bottom of the condenser, must be positioned between the bottom of the rubber air seals and top of rubber grommets.
  1. Connect the lower radiator hose to the radiator.
  2. Connect the upper radiator hose to the radiator.
  3. If equipped with A/C, install the bolts condenser-to-radiator mounting bolts.
  4. If not equipped with A/C, install the rubber air seal retaining bolts.
  5. Connect the reservoir/overflow tank hose to the radiator.
  6. If the radiator-to-upper crossmember rubber insulators were removed, install them.
  7. Install the hood latch support bracket-to-lower frame crossmember bolt.
  8. Install the bolts securing the upper radiator crossmember to the body.
  9. Install the radiator-to-upper crossmember nuts.
  10. Install a bolt to each upper radiator brace.
  11. Install the grille.
  12. Position the rubber seal and push down on the clips until seated.
  13. If equipped, connect the transmission cooling lines.
  14. Install the fan shroud with the fan.
  15. Install the fan and shroud.
  16. Rotate the fan blades and ensure they do not interfere with the shroud and at least 1 inch (25mm) of clearance is allowed. Correct as necessary.
  17. Fill the cooling system.
