Default 05 Turbo Radiator Installation Experience

I just replaced my leaky radiator in my 05 Turbo Touring Conv. The aftermarket part did not have the removable top neck, so I mounted the fan before installation. After reassembly, I took the car for a test drive. I placed the car on ramps to double check for leaks. I noticed one of the lower mounting bushings (drivers side) was out of place and located it at the bottom of the bumper. I thought it came out when I removed the radiator and didn't notice. I waited for everything to cool, removed the 6 bolts, and placed the bushing into position. After tightening everything, I noticed the bushing pushed back out of place and found itself in the bumper area again. I believe that this was happening by moving the radiator back and forth to allow space for my hands and tools. Instead of removing the bolts again, I was able to push the bushing up from under the bumper and into position. I wish I had a third hand for that one. I just want everyone to know about this experience. You wouldn't want a plastic radiator moving around and potentially hitting other parts in the area.
