how do i remove the radiator in a 2007 suzuki
I have to replace the radiator and cooling fans on a 2007 XL7. Does anyone
know the procedure for this.
Wait until the car is cool and drain the coolant into a bucket. There should be a drain on the radiator - take the radiator cap off so the coolant will drain. If there is no drain then take the lower hose off. Once all the coolant is drained then take the hoses off; if your car is an automatic, take off the transmission oil lines too. There will be a couple of bolts near the top to take off, also unplug the radiator fan power. The radiator should lift out although there might be a couple of bolts at the bottom too. Installation is the reverse. I would flush the engine and install new coolant and radiator hoses while you are at it.
Does the front end have to removed to complete this?
No. The radiator should lift straight up.
Thats probably typical in most cars, but with an "07 XL7, thats not possible.
