Just remove front bumper, only two bolts hold it. Do not forget to
disconnect turn signal lights. Then unbolt aux radiator (four nuts). Do
not disconnect water hoses - there is no need. Leave the aux radiator to
hang on the water hoses. There should be enough space to access the crank
bolt from the front.
