Hey guys just going to change an ef radiator today is it as easy as taking the thermofans off and then those 3 hoses on the radiators and then unbolt he two bolts?
Or is there more to it?

Thanks guys

Bolts? Or are we gonna f**k something up like the high pressure hose on the power steering lol.

Thanks mate

Anyone know how to remove tranny lines from the radiator? Do I just undo thebolts that are on the lines themself? As I know with the high pressure hose on the power steering if u do it from that bolt it wrecks the hose as it can't twist. Is this the same or different?

Appreciate the help guys

Undo the transmission cooler lines with a flare nut wrench. Otherwise you will round off the hex.

Not much to it, the nuts swivel.
