Thanks to this I was aware of the problem with the AC condenser. I don't have a dealership closer than 3.5 hours from me, so I was hell bent on leaving the AC in tact.
I have a 2005 car with a 2007 front end on it, so my headlights may mount differently than a 2005, not sure. Either way, I did have to remove the mounting nuts for the headlights (3 adjusters-17mm, plus a tiny stud-8mm), move the lights up and out of the way, removed the clam attachment bolt below, and then reinstall the lights loosely for the actual removal. I didn't want to take them out of the clam because my wires are nice and tidy and I didn't want to redo the wire ties.
But the part I really wanted to comment on was the AC condenser. There are 6 fasteners that hold the radiator to the condenser; 4 screws on the top of the radiator, and 2 welded studs with 10mm nuts pointed UP (why, I have no idea, just through-bolt it like the top and this wouldn't be an issue) in the very front, against the very immoveable radiator shroud.
In my case, I couldn't fit a wrench, socket, or even a crows foot in between the radiator and shroud to move the front two nuts, so I drilled a 1/2" access hole in the front of the shroud and slipped a ratcheting wrench in and easily removed them from there. It may seem like a hack-job but there isn't really a reason not to do it. Here is a picture:
Also, I had an air bound water pump, even after putting 9 litres of coolant/water in, driving it up and down ramps and everything, it just wouldn't prime itself and circulate. I messed with it for a while but basically I got the car to temp and blew directly into the reservoir with all the bleeders open first, then closed, and I felt it burp and it started circulating fine. You still need to bleed it afterwards, but at least it will be circulating!
Just putting my 2 cents up to hopefully save the next person some time.
