Had to replace the radiator on my daughter's 2003 Altima due to a cracked tank. The radiator was easy to remove as a unit with the cooling fans attached and only required the removal of the radiator hoses, the transmission cooling hoses, two bolts, and two wire connectors running to the cooling fan before being able to lift the radiator and cooling fans out as one piece. After removing the cooling fans from the old unit, I installed them on the replacement radiator and the holes lined up perfectly. Installation was just the reverse of removal. The radiator slid into place quickly with no fit problems. The quality appeared to be equal to the factory unit and all outlets, holes, and attachment points were in the correct location. Would recommend this as a suitable replacement for this application.

The radiator purchased was to fit a 2003 Nissan Altima. The unit was well priced, lightweight, and seems to be without leaks, two weeks after installation. However, the holes to mount the fan assembly to the unit, were did not line up, and the fan assembly did not fit the radiator as snug as the OEM part. I was forced to drill new holes in my fan assembly. Outside of that, the part was easy to install.

        Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

        This was supposed to be a direct replacement, however the fan shroud that mounts to it, the top two screws , one of the screw holes weren't aligned properly, took care of that by elongating the one hole on the fan shroud side. Everything else lined up well. Works like a champ and keeps motor cool.
        This replacement job was pretty easy. About 1 hour to replace in a 2006 Nissan Altima.

                picked up at the store. Very easy transaction. It was a direct OEM replacement and very easy to install. The bends on the radiator were well made and stress free. The radiator was well secured in its box with foam and plastic protectants to prevent fin damage. The fittings were a perfect fit with the cooling system and the oil fittings. The brackets and plastic clips fit perfectly into the existing female receiver at the bottom of the holding bracket and secured well. Overall I am satisfied with this product.
