HI.

Welcome to the Lotus Talk forum.

Removal of the radiator is done from under the car (along with a bit of access from above). It's been a while since I've done it. But I believe I removed the bolts that attach the lower radiator frame to the lower under frame, I also believe I removed the fans to give more access.

I've attached the info from the service manual for you. It makes it sound an easy job. I seem to remember it being a bitch to get out.
but goes back in a lot quicker once you have removed it.

Hope that this helps. If you need the rest of the service manual, let me know.

NO. Front bumper does not need to be removed. I have changed mine 2 X and have never removed the front bumper to get the radiator out.
Put the car on axel stands and remove the radiator support frame, Y brackets as per the service manual above.
I chose to also remove the fans, but I seem to think that the upper nuts are quite difficult to remove.
Radiator comes out from below the car, so make sure that you have enough ground clearance.
