Question about 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier
Please give me step by step details on how to remove & replace the radiator on my 2000 chevy cavalier. What tools are needed? Thanks
Disconnect negative battery cable. If you have Delco Loc or Theftlock audio system, turn off feature which reqiers disconnecting the battery. Make sure engine is cool and turn cap slowly to release pressure. Drain cooling system. Disable airbag system by disconnecting the electrical connector from the airbag system's forward discriminating sensor located on the hood latch support bracket. Remove the cooling fan and shroud assembly. Next loosen clamps for upper and lower hoses then Disconect from radiator. Disconect the coolant reservoir inlet and outlet hoses from radiator. You will need a couple drain pans and rags. If your car has an automatic transaxle, Disconect it from the left side tank of the radiator. Use a back-up wrench on each welded nut while loosening the cooler fitting. Be careful not to bend or brake any lines when loosening the fittings. If they are tight spry some WD-40 and wait about 10 mins. Plug the ends of the disconected lines to prevent leakage. Remove right and left head lamp assembiles. Remove hood latch support brakets from radiator crossmember. Remove condenser mounting bolts. Remove the radiator upper mounting bolts located at the upper left and right ends of radiator's side tanks. Now carefully remove radiator. To install just follow directions backwards. I hope this helped.
