I don't know if this is for a mk1 or 2, but it's pretty straightforward for
either, remove the underbody panels, remove the upper panel, remove the
fans, remove the stay pieces, take the hose clamps off and drop it out of
hte bottom.. (remove all coolant first and jack up the front to get room.)
You 'can' have the radiator repaired, but my shop guy was like "this thing's
normal life is 8 yrs, it's 16 now, but i'll repair it, just if it leaks
again, you'll have to replace it...that was 3 or 4 yrs ago now.
your hoses may be old and may break, so you may need to get replacements for
them as well. you will DEFINITELY want to get new clamps or screw/worm
clamps instead of reusing te toyota ones.
hope that helps.
