Radiator Removal Question/Help

Didn't see anything in the how to installation section.

I need to remove my radiator in order to put in my new turbo. I've already drained the fluid. Besides the 2 main hoses (top and bottom) and the 2 brackets at the top. IS there any other bolts that need removed or taken off before I pull it out? Also, can I put it back in easily after I put the new turbo in?

Pictures or link to a video would be awesome. Trying to get the car ready for this weekend.

yea one thing you can do unless youve done it already, put a piece of cardboard in between new radiator and turbo that way you dont ding up the fans. Even though you unplug the fan, leave it bolted to the radiator, may make it a bit more difficult to get it out. But I did mine that way swap it on to new one before install. One thing Id do is depending on age, id swap the stock spring hose clamps for worm style clamps. Spring clamps loosen up over time, especially after you remove them off old hoses.

Good call on the cardboard. Thx. I was pretty gentle taking the turbo unit out with radiator still in, but I was definitely sweating bullets doing it. I figured taking it out will make getting the new turbo in much much easier.

Guard your A/C Condenser with the cardboard if you take the rad out!
