It's simple. I don't have any links or anything though. The clips that hold the upper radiator require you to stick a small flatblade into the top of the clip to release it. Remove the fan if need be with a 1 1/4 wrench, tap it with a hammer clockwise to loosen fan from water pump. Remove fan shroud. Remove coolant hoses, and the auto trans cooler lines if you have those. That's about it.

Make sure you crack the bleeder screw when you fill the system to properly fill it.

Thanks alot, I just completed a radiator replacement on my rx7 and it went pretty good, this sounds a lot easier.
I plan on getting it from speedycarparts.com, hows their rep ? I saw in one of the treads that the Nissens was better than the Behr, do you have any opinion between the two ?

Thanks for your help, I'm going to get right to work as soon as the 8" of snow clears.
