I just did my Radiator, as usual I took to much apart. This allowed me
to see where stuff was and a little easier access to small things
Fender well removal..... allows easier access to bottom of overflow tank
tank and fill hose on radiator.
Bumper removal...  easier access to aux hose clamps, I was able to see
my windshield washer fluid sensor was broken and epoxied it back together.
PS pump removal... Pull radiator with fan attached and easier to replace
those hoses under it .
This  was my first journey into the workings of my Avant and it seems it
was fairly successful.
Not a hard job just takes time.

91 20v Avant slowly getting sorted out
