Disconnect the negative cable from the battery terminals. Make sure the engine has completely cooled down. Remove the protection Carter. The heater valve and the surge tank cap fully open. Unscrewing the drain plug, drain out the cooling liquid in the prepared capacity (not less than 5 years). Put a separate container under the drain hole of the radiator, Unscrew the plug and drain the fluid from the radiator.
Disconnect the fan wires and two sensor wires at the blower motor. From the radiator, disconnect the inlet, outlet and steam venting hoses. To do so, first loosen the tightening of their collars. Unscrew both mounting nuts on the top of the fan cowl and remove mounting bracket of the radiator.
Radiator together with the fan casing pull up from the engine compartment of the vehicle, slightly tilting it toward the engine. The fan housing is attached to the radiator by three bolts and nut. Unscrew them and disconnect the fan shroud and radiator cooling. With the bottom mount radiator remove the two cushions and assess their condition. Torn and lost their elasticity, replace new cushion.
Before installing a new radiator on the car, place it on the fan casing and pillow on the lower mount. Gently lowering the radiator in the engine compartment, insert the cushions into the holes of the bracket and secure them with pins. After that, connect all disconnected hoses and wires. When connecting wires of the sensor of the fan in its housing, first insert the protective rubber ring, and then the wire lugs.
Don't forget to check all hose connections for leaks, pour the coolant and connect the wire to the battery terminal. Before filling the coolant, make sure all drain holes are closed. To check removed the radiator for leaks, immerse it in a water-filled tub. If less than 1 minute from the radiator will start to get air bubbles, then he has through damage and can be repaired or replaced.
