I have seen this tool at my local autozone for about ten bucks. There is a 3/8 inch round quick disconnect going into the Radiator. If you have anything that is small enuff to unlock this that can be improvised that may work instead of the tool. It is a very tight fit even with the ford tool and takes some wiggling to break loose. Check your new radiator, the locking clips should be in the inlet and outlet. The factory radiator are metal clips while most aftermarket are plastic

    How to cange the radiator and radiator heater


    The radiator should not be too big an issue, just depends on what tools you have available and how much stuff is in the way... The instructions here will be for a 2.4L engine, which may or may not help you. You will need a 10mm socket or wrench, a 13mm socket with an extension, and a 5/16 inch wrench or socket. Remove the headlights, you should see two small bolts on either side of the transmission cooler... remove those bolts. Then, remove the three bolts holding the radiator to the engine bay (the electric fan, if equipped, should be near the driver's side of the engine, next to the washer fluid tube). Next, remove all hoses and oil cooler lines connected to the radiator (should be able to remove the cooler lines with a 5/8 inch wrench). depending on your situation, I removed the battery and fuse box near the battery, and moved the air conditioning lines out of the way in order to get the radiator out. As long as the two nubs that are on the radiator are disconnected from the transmission cooler, you should be able to remove the radiator with little to no resistance. Be careful to not bend any fins on reinstallation. Installation is the reverse of removal... depending on how you want to do it, it should take you approx. 3 to 3 1/2 hours... it took me 5 1/2 due to it bein' 103 degrees and I took several breaks. if you have any more questions, please let me know.
