Radiator removal

I am replacing the drivers side radiator and hit probably a simple snag. I don't know how the old radiator is removed. I have taken everything off (bumper, wheel liner, internal air duct, detached AC condenser), but am stuck here. The radiator is attached to the housing through three holes with rubber bushings on either side. I removed the clips on the outside of the housing, but can't see how I get it out. Does anyone know the trick?

All kinds of nasty stuff in there, but of course mine is really bad because it's leaking and turning the debri to black gritty mush. If you haven't cleaned yours, you should.

Maybe a little late, but you remove the clips then you removethe rear portion of the bracket the radiator sits on. The you can remove the radiator.

Yeah, it's been a while, but as I recall, once you remove everything to get to them, they just unbolt or pop right out in their bracket?
