Ok, I gave some slightly bum info. I just went out and looked at mine. I'l try to be more accurate. The shroud assembly is three parts an upper half, a lower half, and a large round rear shroud attached to the front of the motor. The upper half has two 8mm bolts at the top of the radiator which are probably obvious and the lower halve has two 8mm connecting to the radiator as well. The lower bolts are on the outer most part of the radiator pointing straight down to the ground. There are no bolts half way up bolting the two halves together. Once the bolts are off the top half will only slide up (just barely) and the lower half will slide up only as well. Now I've done this a few times to get to the front of the motor which means I'm removing all three parts of the shroud including the fan (which is a bear to loosen off the water pump). I didn't just change the radiator so maybe you wouldn't need to remove everything. Ron's video is helpful if you need to remove the fan and rear round part of the shroud.

This one of those types of jobs that will be frustrating the first time you do it but after that you'll do it in a fraction of the time. I hope this helps.

ok so i have te shroud off. Now the problem is the transmission line fiittings that are digging into the condencer that is in front of the radiator. Did you have to remove it? Or maybe did you have to remove the transmission line fittings?

On mine the barbs just miss the A/C condenser. I did not remove the condenser. My new radiator which is just a new plastic tank type already had the barbs in. I didn't take them off. However I did have the fan and rear shroud off so I might of had a lot of room. Just a note, I've always had to pull out the Radiator and inter cooler out as one. Note sure if there is a way to remove them separately while in the van.
