I dont see in any searches a step by step to replace radiator, anybody have that? Mine is 05 FX35 AWD and is leaking. I replaced cap first but still see fluid along top of radiator so assume its cracked.

I don't have the official procedure, but I've done it twice on my '03 FX, it's pretty easy. Drain fluid, disconnect hoses, be sure to plug the transmission cooler hoses, which are the small hoses at the bottom of radiator. Twist the locking nuts at the top of radiator, unclip fan connector, pull it out. Unbolt a/c fan assembly. Reverse steps to install. When refilling the fluid, make sure to purge the system with the bleeder valve at the left rear of engine. Also, replace the thermostat while you're at it.
