246 viewsHere is the upper rad hose ( also known as the inlet hose ) removing this will assist in getting the upper shroud off,Its also a good idea to remove the intake hose off the intake as well,that will be the next pic
m_upper_and_lower_fan_shrouds_removed.jpg
247 viewsgetting the upper fan shroud out is not easy, it takes a little bit of work, more so if you plan on re-using your rad,so be careful if this is the case,the bottom shroud is no problem to remove,
I am also going to remove the fan and the serpentine belt to allow better access

303 viewsBefore I can remove the rad I still have to disconnect the oem tranny cooler lines and the lower rad hose, in my case the oem engine oil cooler lines had already been removed during an earlier project,so most likely you will have to remove yours,also the powers that be decided it would be best if your rad was screwed together with 4 bolt/screws to your condensor,in my case I had to remove my grill to access these 4 bolt/screws
