How To Install Mishimoto Performance Radiator for Jeep

Hey guys, I’m Andy. Today we will discuss how to install the aluminum performance cooler for the 2007-2011 Jeep Wrangler JK. Alright, let’s jump in!

Necessary Tools

Let’s take a look at the tools needed to install the Mishima Tower Performance Aluminum Cooler in the 2007-to-2011 Jeep Wrangler JK:

  • Quarter Drive Ratchet
  • Extension
  • Eight Millimeter Socket
  • Ten Millimeter Socket
  • Universal Eight Millimeter Wrench
  • Ten -Millimeter screwdriver
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Flat head screwdriver
  • Pliers and a pair of pop clips coolant and a cool funnel.

Installation time is about two and a half hours and is three out of five on the difficulty level.


1. First, we disconnect the negative terminal of the battery, next find the drain plug and release that Coolant off. The drain screw is located on the front of the cooler directly under the grill. Next, pull off the air sensor, next loosen the clamp on the suction hose and then remove the stickers. Then remove the PCV hose from the airbox.

Step 22. Now you can remove the airbox from the glass, remove the four pop clips that hold the upper radiator cover to the Radiator for Jeep. After that remove the coolant overflow hose from the radiator and pull off the fan cover. Remove the upper radiator hose from the radiator and the overflow hose from the radiator fan cover and then pull up the coolant tank.

3. To remove it from the router, remove the three pop clips that hold the lower radiator shroud to the fan shroud, next to Ruby up to eight-millimeter screws that hold the fan shroud to the radiator. Now you can remove the paint rod from the truck, next pull the turn signals. Then remove the six screw clips from the top of the front grille.

Step 44. Sometimes these don’t always want to go up, so use a small flathead screwdriver to improve it if you have to. You can remove the grille if you need to put a little pressure under the grill to loosen it. Remove the four ten-millimeter screws holding the AC capacitor on it. Next, remove the lower radiator hose from the radiator and the four pop clips from the side.

Please remove the two pop clips from the side of the radiator that hold the mower cowling to the radiator and the two 10. Remove millimeter screws holding the radio to the radiator mount and an 8-millimeter screw that holds the AC conduit mount to the side of the radiator. Once you have completed removing the radiator, one at a time before you charge this radio, install hardware that you have to swap from the series wheel to the mission field.

Step 55. Next, mount the cooler on the cooler bracket with the supplied ten-millimeter screws, then mount the air-conditioning condenser on the reheater again. Then mount the lower hose again. Next, mount the fan cover with the supplied tee on the side of the cooler and install the coolant tank, feed the surge tank line and clip it into the top of the fan shroud, then attach the overflow connector to the next line. Install the top radiator hose and reinstall the air inlet box assembly, tighten the clamp that is the intake pipe holding the throttle valve. When you’re done, plug in the air flow meter.

Don’t forget to read, press the red tab, which is a guarantee that it will not pop off. Next, reattach the grille to the truck; reattach the six screw clips on the top of the grille; reinsert the turn signals. After that, reattach the negative pole on the battery.

Filling the Cooling System

Now is the time to fill the cooling system with a 50-50 mixture of Jeep-specific coolant and water for more cooling performance. I recommend adding liquid cooling to two bottles. Now that you’ve filled the cooling system, let’s turn on the truck and turn up the heat to get some of the air bubbles out of the cooling system. Okay, the installation is complete. Take your car for a ride and enjoy your new Missionswiese products!
