5.7L Hemi Radiator Remove/Replace

New member / Long time lurker. I was wondering if anyone has advice on replacing a 5.7L Hemi radiator. I've got a pretty good leak that started a month or two after I replaced my waterpump (had a gasket leak) and radiator cap. My google and forum search hasn't shown any info on the Hemi radiator. When I word search radiator in the FSM I can't find the directions. Basically I want to know how involved it is so I can decide whether or not to have my mechanic do it for about $500. Thanks for the replies. Thanks for the help over the years as well, I never would have got my front rotors off for a brake job if this forum didn't exist (sill rubber o ring).

edit** I found the removal info on page 7-63 of the FSM. So a follow up question. Do I need to disconnect and remove the hydraulic fan assembly, or disconnect the lines or neither. trying to figure out if I need power steering fluid in my auto store list of supplies. Can you remove the radiator without removing the fan?

well I've got the 4.7 model, and I'm not %100 on the similarities, but I could not remove the radiator without removing the fan. There was also plenty of stuff in the way when trying to remove that. I'm not entirely sure if it was required, I was removing the entire front end anyway, but the bumper and grille might have to go.
