First drain the coolant on radiator (There is a plastic plug on the bottom part of the radiator) Open the drain plug with the rad cap open. On top of the radiator there should be a plastic cover that you must remove to give you acces to the radiator mount bolts. Unbolt the fan shorud ant hang it agains the fan. Disconnect the transmission lines from side of radiator as well as upper and lower hoses. Now you remove the radiator bolts (located on the front corners of radiator) After that, just pull it up.
I hope this helps!!

How to take out radiator

the first thing make sure car is totally cooled down. then drain your radiator, there is a drain plug probably on the passenger side of the radiator, it will be on the bottom of your radiator on the inside. then take the hoses off, top radiator hose, bottom radiator hose, top transmission hose, bottom transmission hose. you also need to remove your fans, there will be two bolts on each side of the fans, and there will be some little spring keepers, two on the bottom and two on top, unplug the electrical plug and work your fans around until they come out. you will have mounting bolts on each side of your radiator, more importantly you will have another coil in front of the radiator, and you will need to remove the bolts attaching the two coils togather, be carefull when removeing and installing the new one, because that front coil will be for your a/c dont want to damage it. hope this helps

My car is over heating. I changed the thermostate need to know were/ how to drain radiator correctly and refill

Drains are located on bottom of radiator, Some models dont have them and you simply remove lower radiator hose to drain. But if its full and still overheating? Id have a look at the water pump. They are known to fail and cause severe engine damage

How to replace Toyota Camry Car Water radiator

its pretty simple. first there should be a valve at the bottom of your radiator, open it. that will let you drain it so you dont make such a mess. then remove the upper radiator hose from the radiator and fold it back out of the way. then you will need to remove the lower hose. i usually leave this one on the radiator and take it off the engine. then undo the to transmission lines off the bottom of the radiator. use a pan because fluid will come out. at this poing all you need to do is unplug connectors and remove hold downs on top. then you will be able to lift it out

I dont know how to remove the radiator drain plug on a 98 chevy malibu it looks like a rubber plug I dont want to break it help.

That may not be a drain plug. Look for a large rubber hose going into the bottom of the radiator disconnect that hose have a bucket or something available to catch your fluids so you may re-use it. make sure the car has been off for a few hours very hot and dangerous coolant will come out of radiator.
