    Drain coolant

    Remove upper and lower rad hoses

    Unbolt the fan assembly

    Unbolt the two radiator screws at the top of the rad

    Remove the radiator

    It makes it easier if you remove the cross brace piece that is holding the hood latch.

    Yeah what he said☝. Disconnect the lines to the fan and take it out. Removal and install is not that difficult. I have to do it twice.
