      NOT AN EXACT FIT 2001 PONTIAC FIREBIRD

      By 

      from FLORIDA

      Comments about CARQUEST Radiator:

      YOU HAVE TO CUT THE TABS OFF OF THE BOTTOM INORDER TO GET THE AC CORE TO FIT. IF YOU CUT WRONG YOU RUIN THE TANK. NOT AN EXACT FIT, ADVANCE AUTO WEB SITE IS WRONG. I STRUGGLED FOR 15 MIN AND DAMAGED THE RADIATOR BEFORE I REALIZED THERE ARE PLASTIC TABS ON THE RIGHT TANK THAT ARE NOT ON THE OEM.

        This is my main car to and from work and school so I was really hurting when my old radiator began leaking. I found this online and quickly compared the pricing to other competitors and decided this would be the best route. Went in without a hitch and fits perfectly. Car is running better than when I bought it now. Would recommend this product to anyone who needs it!
