Default 2006 PT Cruiser - Radiator Help


- 2006 PT Cruiser manual transmission
- 180,xxx miles
- Replaced radiator fan recently(Was completely dead)
- When replacing fan, noticed hoses/clamps were in pretty bad shape and the radiator itself was leaking slightly.
- Ordered new clamps, upper/lower hose.

Now here is my dilemma. I ordered this radiator More Information for TYC 2298
If you notice near the bottom are the nipples/connections for what I assume either the AC hoses and or transmission cooler?

Edit: Think I got it figured out... The nipples at the bottom of the radiator are for an Auto transmission? I just need to remove the AC lines bracket that are on the passenger side?

nipples are for auto trans leave capped - then ac lines - fan hookup - make shure you replace thermostat and cap - pressure test system when done - they have multi layered steel head gaskets - very sensitive to overheating! hope this helps
