I'm getting the occasional drip of coolant from one of the weep holes on the water pump.  The manual says I need to remove the rad to remove the water pump but I don't see the rad being in the way of any of the bolts.  Am I missing something?  Wanted to check before I get started.  Did a search but couldn't find the answer.
Thanks for any assistance.

It all depends on the Fulvia model. On an S2 coupe there is no need to remove the rad. Different story for a berlina, Andrea

If you want to remove the grill to make the job easier, then removing the rad makes sense….

I have the grill off the car.  That is why I was asking because I can see all the bolts for the water pump and it doesn't look like they would be obstructed by the rad.  I can pull the water pump out the hole where the grill was located.  The manual does say to remove the grill and then the rad.  Maybe that is applicable to the earlier 1.2's or maybe the S2?

I keep forgetting to ask.  Is there a bolt on the engine block for draining the coolant from the engine or can all the coolant be drained from the bottom rad hose or rad stopcock?

Only bottom drain plug and bottom hose. Water pump will let block water out. Be prepared for a messy exercise.

For anyone doing this you do not need to remove the rad to remove the water pump.  Just take out the grill.  The stopcock bolted to the frame drained most everything.  More spilled out when the water pump was removed so have another catch basin ready.  Thanks for the heads up lancialulu.

S1 Berlina, you not only need to take the grille off which also means the air cleaner, the fan and pillar, loosen the dynamo.
The trim that goes all the way around the grille and headlamps, to get at the fixings on the passenger side you have to remove the air collector box .
Even then it's a fiddle to get the radiator out.
With the radiator in situ you can't even see the bottom hose and the hose clip.
It's what you could call a pig of a job Shocked
