Thanks Everyone!
who knows the size of the allen wrench that i need to get that clamp/hose/pipe off the bottom of the radiator on the driver side? Iv got everything else off and the radiator is practically falling our of the bottom of the car.. just need to get that last thing off. Also, am i going to need to jack the car up to get the radiator out of the bottom or will it fit without raising the car?
Thanks Again,

I replaced the rad on my 97 850 5spd with help from a friend. It was time-consuming but NOT impossible. I bought a Nissens from FCP. Then, a few months later, I had to replace the rad again due to a front end collision. We pulled a rad from the JY and it was super easy to remove and put back in. 7 Months later its running just fine.

I'm a girl and had never changed the oil on a car before. Between the Haynes and Youtube, we made out all right. No, I didn't just watch and hand him the tools. :P

Definitely manageable!
