I'm going to replace the radiator in a 05 Grand AM, 3.4L
I read that the radiator/condenser and fan all come out together thru the bottom.
Is this true or can I cheat and remove it without disconnecting a/c?
If true then,
I need to disconnect the lines at the condenser and im not sure how they come apart. It doesnt have the traditional fitting on the line, it has a nut and then a star head bolt. My question is, do I remove the nut first, then the star head bolt? I know it sounds stupid, just want to ask before I do it so I dont damage it.
Also, does it have the traditional o ring or is there a different gasket I need to get?
Yes, i'm getting the refrigerant recovered first?
And, I figure to lose only about a 1/2 qt of trans fluid, can I just add that thru the red cap at the top or do I need to jump thru all the hoops and use the fill hole on the side?
1)How to disconnect lines at condenser?
2)what type gasket or oring is used?
3)how to add trans fluid?
Thanks in advance for any and all info
