Those clips need to be removed, then the radiator just slides up!

there are rubber boots that are probably in your old radiator that needs to go into those slots to hold the clips down :P

Have you looked at the bottom, at the weird little rubber blocks that clip to the frame? The radiator slides into those bottom clips, and hangs there as if by a miracle, retained only by the little clips at the top.
