Replacing the condenser

Has anyone here ever replaced their condenser? From what I can tell, once the radiator is removed it should be pretty straight forward.. but has anyone ever tried removing it with the radiator still in place? maybe it can be slid up and out? I'd really rather not have to open up the cooling system again, but you gotta do what you gotta do sometimes.

The radiator hoses are pretty compliant. The difficulty will be in the transmission cooler lines. I think odds are high you could move the radiator back a couple inches to perform this trick. (Remove mechanical fan and shroud first)
