Help for a 02 Chevy Venture

I have an 02 chevy van I'm replacing the radiator. it's all ready to come out but it won't. tranny lines are disconnected. Hoses off. When I pull it up, the a/c cooling radiator comes with it. Any ideas?

they are connected in some way. take a look at your new one and you will see how they hook together.

Only a MVAC-trained, EPA-certified, automotive technician should service the A/C system or its components.

Recover the refrigerant from the A/C system. Refer to the Heating & Air Conditioning Section.

Drain the cooling system.

Remove the cooling fans with the cooling fan shroud.

Apparently you remove AC condenser and radiator as single unit, after AC was drained and disconnected, then separate condenser from radiator. Good luck.

Ran across that doing a radiator a while back on a Ford, too. Makes for a lot of extra labor.
