REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Do not remove the radiator cap while the engine is still hot as the hot steam may cause personal injury.
- Drain the radiator.
When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
- Remove the radiator baffle or shroud. Remove the baffle by removing the four baffle-to-radiator support screws. Remove the shroud by removing the two upper screws and the two middle screws. Remove the upper radiator shroud. Remove the lower shroud from its mounting clips.
- Disconnect the upper and lower radiator hoses and the coolant recovery reservoir hose.
- Disconnect and plug the transmission cooler lines if necessary.
- Remove the radiator upper mounting panel or brackets and lift the radiator out of the lower brackets.
- To install, reverse the removal procedure.
