I haven't had to do much to my Beat in the 6 years I've driven it, so maybe my mechanical chops are rusty and the toolbox a bit sparse. I bought a lovely aluminum radiator and assumed (based on other cars) it would take about an hour to swap it in. So what's with the upside-down mounting bolts? It looks like I need about a 40-cm extension to get the top bracket loose from underneath the car?. And the 2 lower brackets require the plastic tray removed? What else am I in for? (I also discovered that I bleed a lot easier than I used to thanks to blood thinners.)
