1.
Disconnect the battery negative terminal.

Tightening torque
(-) terminal (without battery sensor):
7.8 ~ 9.8N.m (0.8 ~ 1.0kgf.m, 5.8 ~ 7.2lb-ft)
(-) terminal (with battery sensor):
4.0 ~ 6.0N.m (0.4 ~ 0.6kgf.m, 3.0 ~ 4.4lb-ft)

2.
Remove the air cleaner assembly. (Refer to Intake and exhaust system in this group)
3.
Remove the under covers (A).

Tightening torque:
6.9 ~ 10.8 N.m (0.7 ~ 1.1 kgf.m, 5.1 ~ 8.0 lb-ft)


4.
Loosen the drain plug and drain the coolant. Open the radiator cap to make rapid draining.

     
Never remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot. Serious scalding could be caused by hot fluid under high pressure escaping from the radiator.

9.
Remove the cover (A).


10.
Remove the upper cover (A) and the radiator mounting brackets (B).

Tightening torque :
6.9 ~ 10.8N.m (0.7 ~ 1.1kgf.m, 5.1 ~ 8.0lb-ft)


11.
Remove the A/C condenser (A) from the radiator assembly and then lift up the radiator assembly (B).


12.
Remove the cooling fan (A) from the radiator (B).

-
Turn off engine. Check the coolant level and add coolant if needed. This will allow trapped air to be removed from the cooling system.
-
Put the radiator cap on tightly, then run engine again and check for leaks.
