Help with 6.0 trans cooler install

I've got the 6.0 cooler sitting on the bench. I've got as far as the grill off, AC unit moved forward and the hose clamps loose on the trans cooler.

How in the hell do you get at this thing to get the hoses off? Do I pull the bumper? Do I pull the headlight header out?

HELP!

I finally got it. I had to take the headlight header panel out to do it. I don't know how anyone can do this job in an hour like they claim.

Like everyone else, I got the cooler on Ebay. I paid $150 US for it. Not the cheapest I've heard of people paying, but way cheaper than Ford!

I just pulled mine out from the top. All you do is pull the rubber cover off, 4 bolts and cut the old lines, unbolt the ac condensor on the right side and she pulls straight up. I did mine in under a hour!! Glad you got it done and sorry I couldn't help you sooner.

I did mine over the weekend. It was a pain in the ***. How do you guys run the lines from the new cooler?

You go under the bumper on the passanger side and remove the cooler lines off of the hard lines then pull the stock cooler out with the lines still attach. Cut and fit the new lines and as you drop the 6.0 cooler in you feed the lines back threw and reinstall them on the hard lines that come from the tranny and out of the bottom of the radiator. You did more work than you had to. The worst is trying to install a 6.0 cooler on an 02 2wd Superduty because the front cross member restrics access from under neath the bumper.

You forgot the one detail of tansitioning from the 3/8" factory line to the 1/2" line used on the 6.0's, not a big deal, but just thought I would mention it for someone getting ready to do this mod!!

Sorry NCHornet, but there's no way you did the cooler job in under an hour. Unless you're one of the guys that gets 25mpg too
