Easy Fix: Replacing the Radiator Support
The radiator support is a metal frame welded to the vehicle that keeps the radiator in place. If it's damaged, the radiator will not be stabilized, and your car will overheat. If you want to replace your old radiator support, this guide will teach you how.
Difficulty level: Moderate
What you'll need:
- New radiator support
- Axle Stand
- Work table
- Socket wrench
Step 1. Open your car's hood. Then, disable your car's electrical system. Use your wrench to unhook the battery's negative or black cable.
Step 2. With your socket wrench, unscrew the bolts securing the plastic pieces under the radiator support first. Then, place the axle stand below the radiator support, so it won't fall.
Step 3. Remove the bolts holding the bumper in place. You can ask someone to help you because the bumper is heavy.
Step 4. Disconnect all wires and cables attached to the radiator support. Remove the wiring at the lower side, the cables for the hood release, and the electrical sensors for the hood and airbag system.
Step 5. Remove the bolts connecting the power steering mechanism to the radiator support.
Step 6. To fully remove the radiator support, unscrew the two bolts at the top. Once they're unscrewed, you can easily remove the radiator with the fan assembly. Place the radiator and fan assembly on the work table.
Step 7. Before you can install the new radiator support, you have to unfasten the latch from the old one first. Unscrew the bolts securing the old support, and screw them back in place on the new one.
Step 8. Once the new radiator support is secured, put the radiator and fan assembly back.
Step 9. Connect the wires and cables. Then, reattach the bumper. Your car now has a new radiator support!
