A radiator cover is there to protect the inside of the radiator and to help distribute the air evenly. After a long time, though, your radiator may be starting to make noise as the air blows through it, or perhaps you simply feel the cover is a little outdated. These are indicators that it is time to remove the radiator cover - either for cleaning purposes or to replace it entirely.

  1. 1

    Ensure that the radiator is switched off and unplugged.

  2. 2

    Remove the trim that covers each side of the radiator. If these pieces are screwed into place, use the screwdriver to remove them. Otherwise a small crowbar can be used to pry them out.

  3. 3

    Remove the fasteners that hold the inlet bezels into place. An inlet bezel is the porous cover of your radiator that allows air to come through.
