USE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS: ELECTRICAL, EYES, HOT COOLANT. With a cold engine. Drain the radiator into a pan, antifreeze is toxic to humans and pets. Remove the air cleaner assembly. Remove the cover over the radiator, if installed. Remove the transmission lines (2). Remove the overflow hose from the radiator. Disconnect the upper radiator hose. Remove the fan blade, you may have to remove the clutch also. Remove the fan shroud. Remove the bottom radiator shield, from under the vehicle. Remove the lower radiator hose. Remove the bolts retaining the radiator, may be on top or on the side of the radiator. Carefully remove radiator, being careful of wiring, oil lines, punctures of radiator core or A/C core.

Reverse procedure to install. Check for leaks. Do not fill with water only, use 50/50 water/antifreeze or engine will overheat.

If you do not have repair experience, have some with experience help you, it will save you a lot of money.
