If you need dis-assembly or replacement instructions for any other auto/car part, or you want to ask question related to your car/truck jeep problem then please leave the comment with your details, so I can provide you the required instructions and solutions.

The procedure is as follows :---

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.

Do not open the radiator draincock or remove the radiator cap when the cooling system is hot and under pressure. This can cause serious burns from hot, pressurized coolant. Allow a sufficient amount of time for the cooling system to cool down before opening up the system.

  1. Loosen the radiator drain plug and, using a large capacity container, drain the cooling system.
  2. Remove the radiator cap.
  3. Disconnect the upper radiator hose.
It is recommended that each clamp be matchmarked to the hose. Observe the marks and reinstall the clamps in exactly the same position when reinstalling the radiator.
  1. Remove the radiator hoses.
  2. Label and disengage the wiring from the thermosensors and the electric fan assemblies.
  3. For vehicles with automatic transaxles, disconnect the oil cooler lines at the radiator. Plug the transaxle ports and the hose ends to contain the fluid and prevent contamination.
  4. Remove the radiator. Be careful not to damage the radiators cooling fins while removing the unit. While the radiator is not heavy, it may be awkward. Use both hands to steady it during removal and installation
  5. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Refill the cooling system with the proper type and amount of coolant.
You may need to bleed the air out of the system to avoid the possibility of a trapped air pocket that may cause engine overheating.
