    I am replacing the front lower crossmember on my van over the weekend as the old one is falling apart with rust, I need to know if it is as simple as unbolt and replace or will the Radiator fall out?????:Doh::Smile:

    Any advice would be much appreciated thanks:thumb:

    Easy job the rad stays in place And locates in rubber bushes .Undo 3 bolts either side and remove crosmember,fit new crosmember make shure rubber bushes are in place, a good tip is to spray waxoil in crosmember.
