    replacing radiator

    Has anyone replaced their radiator, I was wondering if anyone could give me some insight on this. It appears mine is leaking between the tank and core, by the looks of things i should be able to come straight up, once the a/c lines are removed. And the fans and i'm sure the front clip and everything between. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The lines on top are for the trans cooler, you gotta disconnect those to get fans out, ever other cooler line is mounted to the fan housing....

    There are many things bolted to the fan shroud. Clamps for wires and tubes mostly. It is a real pain to get to them all but not impossible. Removing the bumper cover is worth it.

    Re: replacing radiator

    thanks so much for helping me out , so to make sure I have this right once I pull the front clip I just need to give the radiator enough room to come out the top by removing the external trans cooler lines and the fan shroud and assembly, As well as remove mounting bolts and loosening up any other heat exchanger necessary, easier said than done I'm sure.
