2005 same problem same place, easy to replace radiator your self, took me all of about an hour new komoto radiator dropped right in and set me back just under 300. not to take away from a dealer but why pay out big bucks for something that easy. biggest chore making the little tool to pop out the trans cooling lines. simple, use a air or oxy/acty hose fuerrel, split it slide it around the line push in to a snap pull on the line and all drops out. becarefull not to remove the fittings from the radiator I did on the first one and made it a bit more difficult.

I've been through three now... Dealer has replaced it every time and I havnt had to pay but now they don't want to cover it. Where can I find a radiator that I wont have to replace like clockwork at every 25,000 miles?
