    Question Radiator Installation

    I have an 02 WS6 and I was wondering if anyone knows if I will have to remove my AC unit to replace my radiator. My manual says I do but every shop I've talked to says most likely not. I want to replace it myself but I don't wanna start tearing into it and have to mess with the AC.

    You can. Sometime the AC lines will get in the way.

    I have taken it off without removing the AC.

    How long did it take you? Did you pull it out from the bottom?

    Well thanks for the info. Maybe I'll get to it this weekend. I miss driving her.

    a/c can stay. I've pulled mine a couple of times and never had to take the a/c out. That condenser can be a pain in the ass to get lined back up though when you're reinstalling it. I've had it practically just fall into place and I've had to fight and cuss it to get it into place. Just depends on what mood the car is in I guess.
