step 1

open bonnet and relase the clips holding on grill...

step 2 (bumper)

un-clip indicator, covers and fog lights if fitted.

undo the 8 10 or 13mm nuts holding on bumper.


pop 2 clips in wheel arch both sides and the bumper should just slide off:)



undo 4 13mm bolt holding on bumper bracket.

step 3 rad it self.

now u have bumper out the way the rest is simple.

take off both water pipes and un-clip water sensor.

both sides of the fan housing you will find 2 10mm bolts holding the rad in place un do these 4 bolts

the rad will just come out the front of the car happerily.
