      I have to do what to replace the radiator??

      Im replacing the radiator on my 2009 Aveo5 and as Iím getting deeper in the project I am realizing that the only way to get to the bottom bolts that hold the radiator to the condenser is to remove the bumper!

      Seriously? Has anybody else encountered this??

      Yup, encountered the same thing when I replaced my radiator on my 2010 Notchback; the easiest way to do that is by taking off the cover, and crash bar off as one piece.

      Luckily I was able to get under the car and remove that last 2 bolts that held the radiator to the condenser but one of the bolts was rusted and I had a bitch of a time getting that sucker off!!!
