6.    Remove the air duct (inlet) and air cleaner case.

7.    Remove the bracket mounting bolt for anchoring the air conditioning lines from the left side, so that the lines can be moved.

8.    Remove the reservoir tank and bracket.

9.    Remove the upper and lower radiator hoses and the reservoir tank hose.

12.  Remove the two air conditioning condenser mounting bolts located in the upper part of the radiator.

13.  Remove the radiator by lifting it and pulling it in a rear direction. Disassemble the lower mount from the radiator core support center. 

NOTE

Because the air condition condenser is onto the front lower portion of the radiator, moving to the rear direction should be kept at a minimum.

14.  Lift the condenser up and remove the radiator after disengaging the fitting at the front bottom surface.

15.  After removing the radiator position the condenser on the radiator core support to prevent a load on the air conditioner lines and temporarily support it with rope.

 

To install:

1.    Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

2.    Be sure to fill the radiator with the proper grade and type engine coolant.

3.    Start the engine and check for leaks. Correct as required.

Auto Mechanic: JamesH, Auto Service Technician replied 8 years ago
since the core support is there is must be moved to the back. You wont lose the freon but just have to work it too the back being sure not to damage the lines for the ac.
