not hard at all. only a few bolts holding the radiator to the car. just make sure you dispose of the coolant properly and it'll be a good time to replace the thermostat, and the radiator hoses.

few mounting bolts on the left and right tabs. bottom is not bolted at all, these rubber circles kinda like bumpstops just sits in a hole. remove the lower radiator hose and you should be good to go.

when replacing the coolant, be sure to bleed it thoroughly. you can't just put it in. those air bubbles will cause you to overheat.

Fill it up with the bleeder bolt on the thermostat open. Fill until bubble free fluid flows from the bleeder bolt.
Run the car a couple minutes with the rad cap off, filling up the radiator everytime the level drops.
(fill overflow tank to normal level as well)

Yeah so do you keep the engine running while filling with the bleeder bolt and thermostat open? Or you do you run it after bubble free fluid flows from the bolt?

i took out fans first then the radi. the lower hose was tough but i did it all from under the hood... may be easier if you go under the car. it was not that hard though....... if you have an auto, remember the trans cooling hoses too.......
