Hi splcrazy, i'm having the exact same trouble at the moment with mine (trying to remove radiator without removing condenser), have searched for answers everywhere with no luck yet, how did you end up getting the radiator out? i've undone the 2 bolts at the top of condenser (securing to radiator) but not sure what's holding them together down below. I know this is an old thread but hopefully someone can answer it. i'm gonna start pulling the front end off tomorrow to get a better look in there, maybe there's more bolts or clips to undo?

Be careful undoing Air Conditioning lines. The gas will escape and you will have to have the system re-gassed - extra cost !

Ok what i meant to say is detach the lines from the body of the car for more flexibility, not undo the lines.

That is what you said, people should read before responding.

after running out of turkeys, i got my radiator out finally!!!. the condenser has 2 plastic locating lugs (facing down) which drop into 2 holes in the front of radiator bottom tank. I got the radiator out by 1st lifting the condenser (so the lugs were out of bottom radiator tabs) tilted the the base of the condenser towards the front of car so it was clear of radiator, then wriggled the radiator out. did it all without removing thermo fans and without removing any bodywork. hope this helps anyone in the same situation. thanks again for everyone's help :)
