By virtue of the many questions I have received for my social network accounts and here, for my blog. Today in this article I will take the steps to take the radiator from the Chery Orinoco or A3.
It's a simple job, but the only thing is that it has many steps.
-> A 10 mm wrench.
-> Pliers for the hose clamps.
-> Two blade screwdrivers.
1.- First of all, we have to take out 4 screws of the upper support plate and the 6 screws that hold the decorative plastic of the grill as seen in the image.
2.- We take out the grill where the emblem of the brand is, with two blade screwdrivers. This grill is under pressure. Do it as seen in the following image:
3.- Once the grill is outside, you can see the front part where the lock is fastened. We must loosen 5 screws that hold it. But first, do not forget to mark the position where the lock is so that when you arm it fits well, and close the hood. But you will have to do the job of matching the lock. See the following image of the procedure:
Marking of the lock. In the case of the video there is no need to mark, because it is dirty and when leaving the mark will remain as it was.
4.- Slide the lock through the central hole of the iron. At this point the radiator is free to be able to remove it. Remember that the plastic where the 6 screws were does not come out.
5.- Remove the electrical connectors from the electric fans with the help of the blade screwdriver, they are a bit problematic to remove. Also remove the 3 hoses that are connected to the radiator as seen in the image.
6.- Remove the 4 screws that hold the electros. As seen in the image.
7.- Take out the electros and then the radiator.
And ready. To assemble try to put the electro first and then place the radiator. In this way it is simpler and you will not damage the radiator fins on its front part.
Well here is a video of how I did it.
