its pretty simple. remove the fan shroud, pull the upper and lower hose off, disconnect the trans cooler lines and cap them with something to keep dirt out of them, unbolt the radiator and pull it out. its pretty easy.

Done it so many times now, it is a one-hand-behind-my-back job. Very simple. Just be prepared with a few catch buckets because there is no clean way to do this. Some speedydri or kitty litter would be advisable too.
