Unbolt the radiatorfrom its mount. Pull up and out If only it was that easy. I bought one from It was the same brand as original and Much cheeper than the dealer. First Get a Hanes or Chilton Manual for the details As I recall it goes about like this; 1 Jack up the front end and put it on Jack stands. Leave plenty of room in front of the car. 2 Take off the front wheels 3 Take off the inner fender liners and splash pan. 4 Take out the headlights. This ain't easy if there is sand or dirt in the mechanism. 5 Take all of the screws and bolts out of the fenders and front bumper 6 Take off the front Clip (Fenders, nose and bumper cover) Now you can see the radiator New Beatles are cute but High Maintenance Don't ask about the broken plactic, sticky interior paint, fall apart door pads, wrong window switch from dealer, Failed auto trans at 40K( free but they broke the clip on the shift cable and said it was my cost $150), AC compressor failed $2000 ... sold car
