90q radiator removal?

Greetings, distributed fount of wisdom:

I think I need to replace a radiator fan motor in a 1988 90q.  The fan
operates on high speed only, and voltage gets to both sides of the low speed
resistor.  It appears that to remove the motor one has to remove the
radiator, shroud, and motor as an assembly.  Removing the radiator appears
to require hose removal and removal of two rubber isolation mount nuts.  As
usual, the Bentley is vague to the point of uselessness.  My questions:

How does one get to the side mount nut?
What else has to be disconnected?
Does the radiator, shroud, and fan/motor rotate out without removal of the
ABS unit?
What about the air conditioner radiator/heat exchanger?
Any other hints would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance
