remove the fan, then remove all four brass colored retaining clips, pull out fan shroud, then remove all hoses, disconnect tranny cooler lines, and slide radiator out.

You need to remove the strap - maybe this picture of its shape helps? One either side retains the radiator, in addition to all the other stuff mentioned above.

Thumbs up

Thanks folks, I did everything you suggest, It turns out the rubber
side had a good grip on the radiator. I needed to get out the gloves spray a bit of WD and it came out. Thank all of you again.
