Re: instructions needed for rad change!
Optionally use rad-flush first - run the car a day with it in.
With engine completely cold, easiest with front of car raised and supported on axle stands, remove top cross member (black metal sheet). Move aside bonnet release cable. Release electrical connectors and then remove fan(s)-cassette. Drain rad from drainhole if there is one, or else remove lowest pipe, and drain into a bucket. You will probably need to remove the reservoir filler cap too to get it to drain properly. Remove all the pipework from the rad and replace the rad. Reattach pipes (buy new jubilee clips in advance) and reassemble. Fill and use the pipes to pump out any air, and that's it really.
