I just did that today [04/02/2016 at 3pm] and all went PERFECT. I modified a bit your instructions & didn’t have to lift the car. This is my 1st time & it took me 41 mins to take the old one out and the new one in.

1. Once I reach to 2:49 of this video, I continue taking out the grille (4 screws/ 7mm).
2. Disassemble the bar that holds the radiator (only the 4 screws/ 10mm, not the cable), the one that has 2 rubbers. Sit it on the bumper.
3. Unscrew ONLY the upper screw (10mm) of the vertical bar in front of the radiator (middle) & move it to the right.
4. Now take the radiator hose from the radiator only (hold it with the intake manifold)
5. Now you have complete access from the top by making room moving the radiator towards you and you can see where the connector & all the screws are.

5 more easy steps only, taking a few screws (9 total) out and no hassle or pain in the *ss. It doesn’t hurt to try it, good luck!…

Your video has been most helpful thank you very much as getting older haven’t done something like this in years but owning a car that’s accessible to work on makes me want to get down and do it again

Who the hell thumbed this down?! It’s a very clear and understandable video. I guess either their fingers slipped or they’re just not the brightest bulbs. Thanks for posting this – I can now see where the crankshaft sensor is! (What I actually came here for)

was having issues replacing the crank shaft senser, but this helped me figure out how to get the starter out of the way to get to it.

Good job on this video. The instructions were right on for my wife’s ’04.

Did you need a swivel to remove the bottom bolt? I’m having trouble with that
