00 Grand Am radiator replacement

Some of you guys have seen the pics and all of my GA and it's 'dukes of hazzard experience' that was unintended, and if I wasn't on the brakes I prolly would have cleared the ditch. But anyways, my radiator is toast.

So, does anyone know how to replace it? How tos? Tips and tricks that they figured out?

The AC is already discharged, the ditch took care of that (condensor is mounted to the radiator).

I have a haynes manual, but as usual it's vauge and says stuff that I already know.

I did not get a replacement AC condensor, but that might come in springtime or whenever it gets hot up here in MI. I hardly used it last year.

Back to the radiator, it's also a tranny cooler, so what do you guys reccommend for plugging the lines to and from the trans so they dont drip all over?

I think that just about covers all of my concerns.

Here's one man's experience with his Pontiac radiator replacement. I've never had too much problem changing out radiators, but it gives you an idea of what he went thru.....http://www.autoforumz.com/Radiator-U...pict34086.html Also, as far as the tranny coolant lines go, I just stick a ziplock sandwich type bag over them with a rubber band. This is mainly to keep debris out of them, but it will also catch tranny fluid.
