Radiator

Ok so went to get the new Saab inspected today (had to go back home to get insurance card i forgot) left the Saab running in driveway and came back to a big plume of smoke from the hood =( the radiator end tank on the passenger side has a big crack in it(6-7 inches)...Finding the correct replacement was a chore in itself(not sure if there really is a difference between rad for B204E and B204L etc.) but it looks like replacing it on the 9-3 is a huge pain in the ass too! Ive found a few write up for radiator replacement where you have to remove the grille, bumper, headlights etc. Is this really the only way? Thanks!

Well figured i would post so others can find it in a search if they ever need to. Headlights, markers, bumper, Intercooler, oil cooler, ac condenser, and a few other things do all need to come off when replacing the radiator. Not that bad in the end but kinda time consuming. Took maybe 2.5 - 3 hours for removal and installation in 28-33 degree weather.
