Default Big Rad Problem!!!

Apparently the mesh on my radiator has been falling out for the last several years and almost a quarter of it is missing! My air conditioning has not been blowing cold air either... could this be a contributing factor? And what is a reasonable price to fix or replace my radiator... gimme some advice please! hahaha... I'm a loner...

I checked out tasauto.com (link at top of page) and saw a replacement radiator on there for about $120. Then you gotta pay shipping. You may be able to find a radiator for less if you shop around.
As far as the a/c not cooling, I wouldn't think that should have a lot to do with the radiator mesh falling out. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong though. Has the car been running hot?
How long has the a/c not been working?

If you're looking into the front of the grille, that's the AC condensor that you see. Is that where the fins are falling off?

To see the radiator, open the hood &look in thru the fan blades.

If you already know this, sorry... I was just ruling out a simple misunderstanding.

Yes, I did know this... Definitely the radiator... especially because the loose mesh keeps on gettign caught in the fan and gets pulled out...
