You have to get in between the intercooler and the radiator. On my T1N it was not extremely difficult, so I dont think on yours will be much different. If I remember correctly I just took off the top radiator support (2 big screws) and then I kinda pushed the whole radiator stack forward. I might have taken off the intercooler hoses, but it did not require taking off the radiator or a/c condenser hoses.

I was surprised how much junk has accumulated between the radiator and the a/c condenser. I wondered how it was able to still cool. Anyway, I bought a can of a/c coil cleaner at home depot and sprayed it on the radiator, then rinsed it off with the water hose. Looked like new afterwards.
