    Hm you may be right. The factory manual specifies which. I remember having bolt threading problems though.

    Looking over this thread again, I should mention what I did to clear the power steering stuff and get the rad out: instead of disconnecting it, I just rotated it out of the way. Worked fine, no leaks then or now. Again I could have gotten lucky. Like Yeager said though I'd rather be lucky than good any day.

    Rotated what? The reservoir or the pump?

    I know they changed radiators between 2002 and 2006, I dunno if they changed the PS components as well, but there is no way the rad was getting passed the hose in place on my 06.

    The reservoir. There is no pressure on that side of the system and the hose rotated relatively easily yet remained clamped. No leaks. I was very careful but it worked.
