1999 Plymouth Breeze 2.0L Transmission Cooler Removal Sign In

Hi all,

I've diagnosed a severe trans oil leak in the hose that leads to the trans oil cooler in front of the car's radiator. I've removed the old hose and some of the metal tubing that lead to the cooler. In this process, I bent the cooler itself and broke it :( (see pics)
Now of course, I need to replace the whole trans cooler. I mean to replace the sawed-off metal tubing with rubber tubing. Now, I've never removed a transmission oil cooler before and am stuck on how to do it. Will I have to remove the fan assembly and radiator just to get to whatever holds the trans cooler in place?

I really don't wanna take this car to the shop again...

Thanks a bunch,

Seb

That is an aftermarket cooler. They use plastic holders that pass right through the radiator to hold them attached.They are one time use and will have to be cut to remove the cooler. The new cooler should come with some new ones to attach it.

Thanks for the info.

This means that the plastic holders pass through the water cooler and then also through the air conditioning radiator? In essence, I would need to remove the fan assembly in order to reach where these holders end up?

Thanks!

You'll have to peek behind the condenser to see if they go all the way through. They could have ended them at the back of the condenser. You can also if it's easier.

What do you mean here?

I looked through the condenser fans to see if I could find where the holders come out, but I couldn't see to much as the blades and plastic fan housing is quite large. Maybe the holders only go through the water cooler and not the condenser? I'll have to investigate further.

This morning I went to the store and bought another cooler that comes with a mounting kit. I'll see about it today after work.
