Radiator Core Support #876404 03/19/08 11:12 PM

I was in a fender bender on the way to work yesterday... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" /> Everyone is OK. Seems that my Runner didn't fare too well though, the radiator core support is bent in on the ds about a half inch. How hard are they to replace? would it be easier to try to pull it out. Guess its time to upgrade the front bumper too...

thanks!

Do what we do sometimes up here- wrap a tow strap around, then to a tree; back up slowly. Done.

Glad you're okay; someone's parting out a '90 Runner right now in F/S.

Body Damage is Cool
if you didn't press in the fender apron at all, all you have to do to replace the core support is drill out all the tac welds and weld the new one in.

if the fender apron is damaged, i would take it to a body shop and put it on the frame machine so they can pull it out. regardless, the core support has to come off for this to happen.

You just have to drill out the spot welds. Get a GOOD spot weld cutter (the kind that looks like a little hole saw) and take your time cutting. I took mine off recently. It wasnt that hard, you just have to be careful not to cut through both panels. I'm going to use nuts and bolts when I put it back on so that I can remove it easier. You could weld it back in place or use rivets.

Thanx all! I've located a couple here locally and will more than likely replace the rad core support... this weekend I will try to pull it out though and see how close I can get it, at least temporarily... I do like the idea of using rivets or bolting the new support in. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shiner.gif" alt="" />
