Hi! Welcome to JustAnswer. Thanks for coming! I'm Ron Z and I'll be helping you with your question today.

On this vehicle, there is no need to remove the bumper and grill to replace the radiator. The radiator cooling fans will need to be removed first. This will require the lower deflector shield (splash guard) be removed to gain access to the fan lower mounts. The A/C condenser will then need to be unmounted and re-positioned aside for easier working room access. Please remember to leave a rating using the 'stars' or click 'Accept'.
