need help with IC removal...

I am taking the IC off the EX to clean the inside and check it for leaks. I removed the top support and have the IC free, but the AC lines are keeping me from taking it out. I have never heard you need to take the radiator out, but do I? I am sure I am just missing something and any tips would be appreciated.. Thanks a lot guys..

You have to tip the rad back if you dont want to recharge the AC by unhooking the lines... When I did mine I needed to replace the AC condenser anyway so I just unbolted them and let her blow...

When I took mine out I simply tilted...wiggled and coaxed it out. It took some effort but it got done.

How are you going to clean it out? I would like to clean my early 99 IC before I put it up for sale.

I am letting 1 gallon of rubbing alcohol soak inside it for a day. I have been moving the IC from side to side to get it through all sides of it. I just did the CCV mod and now I will have no more oil inside the IC...

I understand the evaporative part of the rubbing alcohol...but when it dissolves the oil...will the evaporative properties remain? I've been also told about dumping a gallon of "simple green" in the IC...followed by a gallon of hot water. I just don't know how you would make sure the inside is completely dry before putting it back in.

would it really matter if you didnt get all the moisture out at first? if you were that concerned with it, just put more rubbing alcohol in it, it makes water evaporate, like 4cstr said. or just throw it back it and let the engine heat get rid of it.

Good point. I am not going to be able to install it for a few days. Work is going to take me away until Saturday. I am going to drain the alcohol tonight sit it on one end and let it drain more. Then before I install it this weekend I am going to blow compressed air inside it to help a little. I am no expert but I think this will let it dry out pretty much complete.
