I'm doing this job right now. Everything but the rad is off the car. I'm flushing it with distilled water as a coolant change is in order. If you are changing coolant remember that you will not get 1 1/4 gallon of coolant out. So, a flush is needed and then filling a gallon+ with concentrate to balanced out the water.

Rad removal looks simple once the bumper, intake shroud and inner fender is off. Have not done it yet. Will do next week. Lets let each other know about any weird problems and solutions.
