Removal

PERFORMANCE ORDER
Models without an air conditioning
1. Remove a wire of weight from the accumulator.
2. Lift a forward part of the car and fix on supports.
3. Merge cooling liquid from cooling system, having disconnected a hose from the radiator basis.
4. Remove in gathering the fan of a radiator from a back part of a radiator.
5. Disconnect a hose of a broad tank and, at presence, remove a small hose of the thermostat from the top part of a radiator.
6. Remove the top hose on the left side of a radiator.
7. On models with an automatic transmission disconnect hoses from the heat exchanger.
8. Disconnect electric sockets from the radiator fan.
9. Disconnect electric sockets from a fan thermoswitch (it is specified by an arrow).
10. Release fastening of electric wires to the top part of a radiator.
11. Remove a radiator lattice.
12. At presence remove air directing with the left and right party of a radiator and a hose of the heat exchanger of a steering drive with the amplifier.
13. On models with the diesel engine of 2,0 l unscrew a bolt of fastening of a tank of the amplifier of a steering from the top part of a radiator.
14. Remove a hose of the heat exchanger of a steering drive with the amplifier.
15. Unscrew bolts and remove a suspension bracket of the top part of a radiator.
16. Remove the top suspension brackets of fastening of a radiator.
17. Take rubber демпфер from the top suspension bracket of a radiator.
18. Remove a radiator (a photo at the left), lifting it upwards from rubber pillows in the bottom frame (the arrangement of a rubber pillow of a radiator in a forward bottom frame is specified by an arrow in a photo on the right). Take a radiator from a motor compartment.
Models with an air conditioning
19. Remove a wire of weight from the accumulator.
20. Lift a forward part of the car and fix on supports.
21. Merge cooling liquid, disconnecting the bottom hose of a radiator.
22. Remove in gathering the electric fan of a radiator from a back part of a radiator.
23. Disconnect a hose of a broad tank and remove a small hose of the thermostat from the top part of a radiator.
24. Remove the top hose on the left side of a radiator.
25. On models with an automatic transmission disconnect hoses from the heat exchanger.
26. Disconnect an electric socket from the fan of cooling and a fan thermoswitch. Also disconnect an electric socket from an air conditioning thermoswitch.
27. Remove a forward bumper.
28. Unscrew bolts of fastening of the condenser of an air conditioning and the additional electric fan from a forward part of a radiator and move them aside, without disconnecting from them hoses.
29. If it is necessary, unscrew a bolt of fastening of the evaporator.
30. On diesel engines with the heat exchanger remove a branch pipe of giving of air.
31. Unscrew bolts and remove the top suspension brackets of a radiator, then take a radiator upwards from the bottom rubber support.

Check

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. If the radiator acted in film in connection with throughput reduction, wash out its stream of water in two directions. Outside blow a radiator the compressed air.
2. If the radiator proceeds, do not try to make or solder a leaking place since plastic details of a radiator will be damaged.
3. Insignificant негерметичность a radiator can be eliminated with use of hermetic of a radiator.
4. Check up a condition of the bottom rubber support of a radiator and if necessary replace them.

Installation

PERFORMANCE ORDER
Installation is made in sequence, return to removal taking into account following moments:

 – Check up that the bottom ledges on a radiator were established in rubber support;
 – Check up that all hoses are correctly connected and reliably fixed by collars;
 – In summary fill in cooling liquid in cooling system.
