Can the radiator support be replaced on a gas 1995 f150 without removing the fenders? I will replace the radiator at the same time but was looking and it appears it could be done without taking the fenders completely off or clearing out the ac system.
Yes to the fenders but no to the AC, the lines runs through the support so the evap core has to come off. Everything bolts to the rad support too so there is a long list of things that have to come off...
Remove the battery and battery tray.
Remove the airbox and mounting bracket.
Remove the grill
Remove the headlights
Remove the lower facia between the grill and bumper
Disconnect the rad from the rad support.
Remove the AC Evap core.
Unbolt the rad support from the fenders.
Unbolt the rad support from the frame.
Remove the rad support and reverse the order for assembly.
