I changed the rad on my 2.0 TS a couple of years ago, it took me about 3 hours so can't be that difficult!!! ... best thing to do would be to get a copy of eLearn as that has got instructions on ONE way to change it there are a variety of different ways ...

remember that most/all of the small screws holding the fan/rad/ducting/etc together will snap...

I took the bumper off mine and took it out the top.

I am pretty sure that it the easiest way unless you have a proper 4 pillar lift so you can drop it from underneath.

Its also a good time to do the GTA mod on the headlights. ;)

I took mine out via the top too, even though I was doing the job on a proper garage lift.

Took mine out of the top too ... although it was quite a squeeze ... if (when) I have to change the rad on my JTD I'm going to give it a go taking it out from underneath (as there's even less space under the bonnet)...
