Sorry spelt Shroud wrong
Okay, just a simple one. Put the radiator on and then moved on to the shroud. Is it only held in place by the top bolt that has a metal piece from it to the support. Are there any other place to secure it or just on the top?
Thanks
Tim

The bottom is secured by two small "S" clips that fit on both sides at bottom and attach to the radiator.
The clips are available from most of the repop houses including the site sponsor at bottom of page.

i'd also like to add that the shroud needs to be coaxed to get it into the lower clips - the plastic should flex enough to get the shroud onto them.

Would you suggest attaching the shroud to the radiator before putting them into the car or is that even possible?

Garage
One could install the shroud onto the radiator, then install the assembly, only if fan blades are removed.

Shroud on first, over the water pump, then slide in the radiator, then, mount shroud onto radiator. S-clips can be gotten from dealer, $1.83 each. The top of the shroud is held in place by one bolt in the bracket bolted to the radiator support.

I've found it easier to place the shroud over the fan, install the radiator, then connect the shroud to the radiator.

How about the bracket that goes on the radiator support. Do you put it on before either radiator or shroud or does it get in the way like the huge one for the 6 cyl?

Regarding the top bracket, I don't think that it will matter when you put it on.
