    To get to condensor, we have popped out grille, unscrewed 7 fastners holding cover to bumper. Next came headlamps 2 screws top & 2 bottom each side, wire connections for fans & temp switch, Drained radiator @ petcock, removed A/C line next to lower radiator connection Next came removing the upper dryer line. Also spread the clamp on the dryer so when you pull radiator support the dryer stays @ frame rail. We loosened the radiator hoses at the engine side and unconnected the hood release cable. A bolt at the front edge fender at the hood line and 2 thru bumper at frame horn and the support is ready to pull off. We set the support on a closed top drum ( a narrow table will work too) 4 screws and lift off support from condensor/ radiator assembly. After breaking apart the 2 and replacing the radiator( or in our case the condensor) the simple reverse of steps and your done. A little over 2 & 1/2 hours with teenager help
