ive had another look, and i think im being stupid....

the air con condenser sits in front of the radiator so i dont have to disturb it - i think..

it should be intake duct off, fans off, drain rad, unbolt, unclip hoses and remove. then refit.

does anyone know what seals are needed?

Simon,

I don't know if my reply is too late. My radiator has just gone too and I've been looking into what is needed. If you have an auto there is an A/T fluid cooler built into the bottom of the rad. If you buy an auto version of the rad you can leave the two A/T connections unconnected. There also appears to be two different part numbers for the radiator depending upon the thickness of the core. A replacement rad seems to be about £90 (£280 at the main stealer).

16400 RADIATOR ASSY

16400 70620 1GFE..GXE10..ATM; CORE THICKNESS=16mm

16400 70640 1GFE..GXE10..ATM; CORE THICKNESS=27mm

I cannot see any new seals that are required other than the foam gasket around the edge of the rad. You may need some replacement M6x20 bolts if yours shear off when separating the fan assembly. You will need to plug the A/T fluid pipes to stop oil from leaking out.

Just recently replaced my Radiator.

I got one from flea bay for £80 it's for an automatic but fittings come with it to plug the in/outlets on the radiator.

No other seals are required. :)
