2005 Radiator

Anyone have a preferred brand to replace the radiator in a 2005 Murano SL? We gave it to the granddaughter and now guess it needs to be changed.

thanks.....

Well, if money is no object then the preferred brand is OEM . Otherwise, you can pick up a Denso brand on RockAuto for $92 (...a little less if you have a coupon). Not a bad idea to change the thermostat as well if not replaced already. Also, if the hoses are original you may want to swap those out too since they may end up tearing anyway when you remove them.

I used a denso from rock auto for my 09. Under $100 a couple of years ago. Dealership wanted 6 or 7 hundred if I remember correctly. Something like 13 or 14 hundred to replace. I did have to cut off one of the lower hoses. I did remove the AC condenser, but I think it could be done without removing. I was worried about damaging it.

I to used Denso. You will have to remove your battery case to remove the cooling fans. Very easily to remove and replace. Hardest item is getting two electrical connections loose for the cooling fans. As noted above would be a good time to replace the hoses and thermostat if they have not been replaced.
