    • 2 Loosen the hose clamp that connects the lower radiator hose to the radiator using a Phillips head screwdriver. Then pull the hose off the radiator.
    • 3 Unscrew the transmission cooler lines from the radiator (automatic transmission only) using a wrench.
    • 4 Unscrew the bolts that secure the radiator to the core support, using a socket.
    • 5 Lift the radiator straight up to remove it from the vehicle.
    Installing the Radiator
    • 1 Lower the radiator into position behind the core support. Be careful: the cooling fins are thin and can be easily damaged.
    • 2 Screw the bolts that secure the radiator into the core support. Tighten with a socket.
    • 3 Thread the transmission cooler line fittings into the radiator. Tighten with a wrench.
    • 4 Slide the lower radiator hose onto the fitting on the bottom of the radiator. Slide the hose clamp over the fitting and tighten with a Phillips head screwdriver.
    • 5 Slide the upper radiator hose onto the fitting on the top of the radiator. Slide the hose clamp over the fitting and tighten with a Phillips head screwdriver.
    • 6 Fill the engine with a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water.
