Default How to remove transmission cooler lines?

I've been trying to replace the radiator on my 94 camry, but found
it's very hard to remove the transmission cooler lines (the two rubber
lines at the bottom of the radiator). Can anyone suggest a way to
remove them? What tools do I need?

Thanks a lot!

If the cooler lines are stuck to the fitting, use a can of silicone spray
on the hose and let it sot for a bit. It will soften up the rubber ond
they will slide right off

Use your fingers - or common slip joint pliers.
There's a spring clamp on the hoses.
If you buy another Toyota radiator, the fittings in the bottom tank
are included, so you should not be trying to remove them.
The only tricky part I found in replacing the radiator was a certain
plastic holder for the wiring to the temperature sensor. Finally
clipped it with diagonal cutters, and it springs back into shape
sufficiently to hold the wire harness when replaced.
