1st. Drain the fluid into a pan. If you keep it clean you can re-use it

2nd- remove The upper and lower radiator hoses. Fluid will run out. If you can catch it. do that

3rd. If your car is an automatic you will have to remove the transmission cooler lines.

You will have to dis-connet the fan at the fan harness.

Once you verify that all hoses and wires are disconnected. The next step is th remove the 2 brackets that hold the radiator in the car. Its probably 2 12mm bolts. Just lift it out.

Reply to James's Post: Is the fan harness an electrical connector?
Is it disconnected like a plug?
Or is there more to it?
