Re: Radiator replacemment - How difficult? (not_so_furious)

i dont know about with big bumpers , but with small bumpers it was cake.
drain the coolant ,remove the grille, unbolt about (9) 10mm bolts to remove the radiator support, you dont need to unbolt the two top radiator mounts if you dont want to, they just slide right out of the radiator. disconnect hoses/headlight harnesses, take the grille/radiator support/headlight assembly out. unbolt the radiator from the condenser, then unbolt it from the fan unless you are getting a new fan too. its pretty simple. there is a bolt kinda hidden front center down by the bottom of the car that holds the radiator support on.
