Well I've just recently removed the radiator out of my donor C900 just for the sake of it and found that it's actually not too difficult once the hood/bonnet is off the car. I haven't checked what the Bentley manual says about radiators... Make sure you use a new mounting kit but the new radiator should in theory come with those bits. I'll get the Saab # for the radiator mounting kit later as I've got one in the shed for when I finally replace the whole upper member on the front of my 900S.
