We remove the radiator for replacement or repair in specialized workshops

The radiator is removed assembled with a condenser (air conditioner radiator)

We prepare the car and install it on a lift or an observation ditch

Disconnect the negative terminal of the battery

We loosen the fastening of the supply hose of the cooling system of the working fluid of the automatic transmission by squeezing the pliers, the bent ears of the clamp

We move the clamp along the hose and remove the hose from the radiator fitting

We also disconnect the working fluid discharge hose from the automatic transmission from the radiator fitting

We inspect the rubber cushions of the upper radiator support

We wash the radiator from the outside with a jet of water

If there are cracks on the plastic radiator tanks, replace the radiator

We check the tightness of the radiator, for this we jam the radiator pipes

We supply air to the radiator at a pressure of 0.1 MPa (1 kgf / cm2) and lower it into a container with water for at least 30 seconds

Violation of tightness is determined by the outgoing air bubbles

Install the radiator in reverse order

When installing hoses, lubricate the radiator pipes with a thin layer of silicone sealant

We pour oil into the gearbox
