You have to remove the front bumper, headlights, bumper and radiator supports, cooling fans just to get to the radiator.

Thanks, I change oil, brakes small thing like that, will that be a job that somone like me can tackle?


I wouldn't. if I were you. I have worked on cars for 30 years and it took me 3 hours to get it apart on a vw beetle but you have to pull the front fenders on them too.
