Question about 1999 Chrysler 300M
Removal & Installation
Posted on Aug 03, 2010
Hi, the most recent manual I have for that body style is a '98 Concorde. It has a 12-step procedure in either direction: drain cooling system, protecting the drive belts from getting any coolant on them. The next step is to remove the upper radiator crossmember. After removing the radiator cooling system hose connections, the trans cooler hose connections and plugging those, the oil cooler connections (if equipped), and fan wiring connector, remove the fan module (four fasteners on the corners, two clips at the middle top and bottom). Use care to avoid bending the condenser inlet tube. Remove the condenser attaching screws (one on either side) from the front of the radiator. Remove fasteners for bracket that connects the transmission cooler line to the left side of the radiator. Lift A/C condenser up only enough to clear the upper mounting clips, and allow condenser to rest on lower radiator crossmember. It is not necessary to discharge the A/C system. Radiator can now be lifted free from the engine compartment.
Install is the reverse: slide radiator down onto the cross member making sure that rubber supports fit in holes. Attach A/C condenser with 2 fasteners (45 inch pounds of torque). Connect lower radiator hose and clamp. Connect trans cooler line bracket and trans cooler hose lines (22 inch pounds). Install fan module. Connect electrical to fan. Connect engine oil cooler (if equipped). Install upper radiator hose. Align hose to not interfere with drive belts or engine. Install upper radiator support crossmember. Fill system with coolant.
I hope that this '98 description is applicable to your 2000 model year.

Thats a lot of work to take it out if you dont need to. You will need to get a Radiator Pressure Tester or pay a repair shop to do it for you. When under pressure you will need a good flashlight and a mirror to pinpoint the leak. You can always get it warm, that will increase the pressure somewhat and then look for the leak. Radiators ususally leak at the ends where the tanks attach to the core or the tank can crack.

Disconnect the wires leading to both of the fans. Remove the cross-member that goes over the radiator. Remove the four bolts securing the fan assembly and lift it out.

If I remember correctly... On the drivers side, about midway, above the tie rod.
It's a tight squeeze to remove. recommend the type of filter grip that goes on the end of the filter.
The band type is tedious due to limited room to grip and turn.
