Hi bricko
im dave
its generally quite easy
1. disconnect the cable from the negative side of the battery.
2. drain the coolant from the rad using the plastic draincock at the bottom left or right of the rad. If it is less than 1-2 years old save and reuse it.
3.remove any parts that may be in the way of removing the rad and fan.
4.disconnect the coolant resorvoir hose at the rad cap and remove reorvoir if it is the way of removal.
5. disconnect the connector on the fan.
6. remove the screws that hold the rad to the top crossmember of the car.
7.if your car has a block heater remove the wire or reposition it
8.remove the plastic crossmember from the top of the rad if so equipped.
9.at this point you may have to remove or reposition the air cleaner assembly.
10.disconnect the two or four metal transmission cooler lines found on the left and/or right sidewalls of the rad. Plug the metal lines with plastic plugs available at any hydraulic supply store or use pieces of cut rag and elastic bands or twist ties to prevent contamination and loss of transmission fluid.
11.Loosen the hose clamps and remove the upper and lower radiator hoses. If they dont pull of easy you grasp them with a pair of slip joint pliers and twist back and forth until the seal breaks. Be careful not to crush the plastic fittings that the hoses slide onto. If the hoses are fairly old or deteriorated at all it might be easier to just cut them off and buy 2 new hoses. The new hoses will be a very tight usually and you may have to boil the ends for a couple of minutes to make them pliable. Also if the hose clamps are the type you need pliers to remove you might like to replace with the screw type for future ease of removal.
12.Remove any clips or screws holding the fan module onto the rad remove.
13. If the a/c filter/drier is attached to the radiator remove the screws attaching it and support it in its current position.
14.this same filter/drier might also be attached to the fan module so check that before completing step 12.
15.lift the radiator from the engine compartment and be careful not to spill residual fluid on the paint as it corrosive. Clean any spills immediately. dont scratch the vehicle either and try not too bang or distort any cooling fins. they are very fragile.
16. post me as to why you would want to remove the rad anyway.
17. check the condition of the rubber rad mounts and replace if deteriorated
18.clean the area around and under the rad/rad mounts of mud and gravel
19. After reinstalling the rad fill with the proper mixture of coolant and wait for the car to reach normal op temp and refill as needed. check for leaks at the draincock, hoses, and transmission lines. with the car idling at op temp check the transmission fluid level. Before checking however it is important to cycle through the gears. this is for automatic vehicles only.
