REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1 through 14
- Disconnect the negative battery cable. Drain the cooling system.
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.
- Disconnect the electric cooling fan wiring.
- Unfasten the clamps and remove the radiator upper and lower hoses.
- If equipped with an automatic transaxle, disconnect the oil cooler lines (always use a line wrench).
- Separate the coolant reservoir hose from the radiator. On some models remove the reservoir if necessary.
- Remove the 2 bolts and two upper supports. Lift out the radiator with the cooling fan attached. Remove the 2 lower supports from the unit. Use care not to damage the radiator fins or the cooling fan.
- Once out remove the 4 bolts retraining the electric cooling fan assembly to the radiator.
