No - the front bumper does not need to be removed when changing the radiator. Recommend you consult a detailed repair manual for the step-by-step instructions. Be sure to replace both the upper and lower radiator hoses, and install new hose clamps when replacing the radiator.

Try these on-line auto parts sources; www.autopartsanything.com, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com - to list only a few.

In fact, they (RockAuto) list the replacement radiator from around $81.00, the upper hose from around $27.00, and the lower hose from around $11.90 for your vehicle.
