first you will have to drain the fluid out of the radiator. Make sure you check the pressure of the large hose going to the radiator. It it is hot and hard, don't remove the radiator cap. wait until the engine is cool. After draining the fluid, disconnect the hoses running to the radiator one by one. mark each one so that you place them back in the correct place.
