How to replace radiator?

Anybody know the basic procedure for removing/replacing the radiator on a 6.4?
Mine has the dreaded leak and I'm out of warranty. I'm not paying the dealer $500 in labor to replace it.

Just bought it used, 51k miles. Not covered under diesel or powertrain warranty.

I just had my radiator replaced last week under warranty. I was told by the dealer that there had been some problems with the 6.4 radiators and a number of them had been replaced. I would speak with the service manager and explain what is being discussed on this forum. It may help. Can't hurt. I have had items replaced by Ford on other vehicles that were "out of warranty" on problem issues.

With all the problems Ford has had with their radiators I would be amazed if they refused to replace you'rs. I'd be willing to bet If you complain enough they will replace it at no charge.

yeah, I thought there was actually a service bulletin out regarding this.

not a recall that I am aware of, but definitely worth talking to the service manager about, or maybe your sales person if you bought it used at a dealership.

Go in and talk to the dealer. If that fails call Ford and tell them that you are aware that this is a recurring issue for them 95% of the radiators are splitting on the seams, so they should replace them.

Worked for me.

The 100k enegine/powertrain warranty is a transferable warranty to new or used.
