IMHO, it's way easier just loosen up the fan bolts until they are free,  and pull out the fan and the shroud as one unit vs. pulling the radiator.

+1 . Both ways work. Which is easier is a matter of perspective IMO.  Because of access ,small fan bolts can be time consuming to take off and put on. I typically do the fan clutch bolts only because I don't want to deal with the radiator fluid mess.

After reading it a couple of times I think he didn't want to do either way possibly hoping a special twist jiggle thing might work,it wont.

Ha  ha.  Count of me in too. Sometimes you just have to pick your poison. I'll take the slow and tedious over the wet and messy.

One of my least favorite jobs.   I will say it does get easier the more times you do it, but still no fun.  I also would prefer not to drain and remove radiator.    Small hands and patience helps.  Also, when getting ready to reinstall good clean threads on the bolts and water pump flange along with some WD40 is helpful in that you can do a lot of the threading in by hand and not have to use your wrench as much.

A thin sheet of cardboard over the radiator core  also is helpful to keep your knuckles from bleeding all over everything.

FWIW, I agree with Z and Kurt and Bob.  Great use for ratchet-wrenches.

Leave the radiator & fluid alone unless time for a change/flush.

Could aways cut it in half, then glue it back together once it's mounted Grin
