Prefered Radiator removal method

Postby Figo40 » Tue Mar 15, 2016 9:48 am

I've looked around but did not see anything on this. I have removed my radiator already but it was a pain, so I'm wondering if there is a better way. Do you guys remove the shroud and fan pully first?
I'm really looking for advice on reinstalling the darn thing!

just take out the shroud screws and push it back out of the way, plenty of room then

Before you reinstall the radiator, make sure you chase all the bolt holes in the bolster so they can be torqued accurately.

and disconnect the lower pipe so you can clean out and flush that bolster. Use stainless bolts and washers when reinstalling the radiator so it is "worry free" the next time its done. It costs minimal compared to the pain it can be.
