Radiator removal c280-1994

Did a search and couldn't find anything on this model.

Anybody know the steps to take this thing out? I took the three hoses off, two cooler lines, and now it is not budging, looks even like the two electric fans are connected to the front of it? What am I missing?

If anybody could tell me the process, I'd really appreciate it. I thought this would be quick and easy and now I'm stuck. I want to get my car back on the road!

Thanks!!

Bump.

If somebody has done this job I'd really appreciate some help.

I looked at the w124 DIY radiator and it does not address my issue. The two fans are attached to the radiator, how do I get them off?

I will hazard an educated guess based on 124's and my W140. What you are seeing behind the auxilliary fans is not the radiator. That's the condensor for the Air Conditioning system. Look just to the left and right of the hood latch strike. You should see a couple of sets of spring clips. Use a screwdriver and a shop rag to lever them up and out. These hold the radiator in place. Of course you also have to remove the plastic fan shroud. The condensor stays in place. Once you get the radiator out, be sure clean out all the bugs and crud trapped between the condensor and the radiator.

Maybe this will help. See attached image. The arrow points to one of the spring clips.

For future reference for the rest of the users I took some pictures.

Thanks softconsult and jnenad16 at club 202. There were two bolts that held the radiator to the condensor. To access the two 10mm bolts I had to undo 3 other 10mm bolts to lift up body metal.





After that, the radiator came out in a snap. Just a little bit of wiggle to get it out. Notice new belt.




No dragging my knuckles across the radiator this time-fan clutch goes right in! (Stop tonight and set to proper torque tomorrow before getting it all back together.






Again, big thanks to jnenad16 and everybody else on this, you really helped a guy out. Those two little bolts hidden away really were frustrating.

Also, thanks to the missus who patiently, albeit begrudgingly held the shop light and snapped some pics for me to show you guys.

Glad you figured it out. Obviously different than 124's.
