The AC condenser should not have to come out when the radiator is removed. As for radiator removal, just collect the antifreeze while draining the radiator, remove the two large hoses from the top and bottom of the radiator, remove the cooling fan shroud and cooling fan, then remove the bolts which hold it to the radiator panel. Lift the old radiator up and out being careful not to hit anything. Installation is the reverse. Go to www.Chiltons.com online and look up "radiator removal" using your auto information.
