I just purchased a 96 seville sls, with a blown radiator. I've replaced one on a 93b with ease, is there anything I should be weary of on this one? My Haynes doesn't give me much to go on.

Shouldn't be much (if any) difference.

Use the Haynes manual to sop up any coolant you spill on the floor.

Somewhere around this time ('96) I think they (GM) hooked the condenser to the radiator. Just a tang in a slot at 9 and 3 o'clock. Just be aware you may have to lift the condenser up an inch to 'unlock' it from the radiator, unless you want to take both out as a set.

If it's like my '99, there's an a/c line support clip on the fan that is easy to break. I broke it when I pulled my rad. Fortunately, later when I had to replace that line because of a freon leak, the new one came with that clip. Must be a common fail point.
