'04 Nissan Altima radiator Sign In

New to CarJunky but this seems like the perfect place to pose this question and get a decent response-- does anyone know how difficult it is to change the radiator on an '04 nissan altima. The estimate (from the dealer) is $600 but the part is available on ebay for 110 with shipping and i figure it can't be hard to install. Any opinions/suggestions? Thanks

Many are not that hard but some are. It's getting stuff out of the way that poses the problems. Take a good look at it and see what's in the way. Electric fans, trim panels and shrouds among the items. Some rads have to go out thru the bottom so you would need the ground clearance for those.

The dealer price would be the list price for the part(s) which is expected but the $600 sounds high. Was this to include hoses and more also?

Also-- why does an '04 need a new radiator? Most last longer than that unless damaged somehow, T
