Radiator Removal

I am new to the forums and I did not see a post yet about radiator replacement. I have a 1999 93 turbo and I am almost finished replacing the radiator. I am having some problems getting the actual radiator out. I have the fan shroud off. The A/C is unbolted and all the hoses are disconnected. Radiator still won't budge on the driver side. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Josh
