Knackered radiator

Recommended Posts

Evening all.

I've been through the multiple threads on leaking radiators on the 400h. I'm heavily assuming I need to replace it (see pic).

But two questions: 1: do I need to replace the whole thing. As in, does it come with that broken bit as standard?

2: can I patch it up as a temporary fix?

(Context: noticed the coolant was low, then saw the crack, weeping slightly. No obvious signs of heavily leaking, no pink stuff anywhere, no overheating)

Cheers in advance

Ha, definitely not. It's a leak in the plastic housing on the LHS. Pretty common.

Was gonna J-B Weld the 4cm crack in the plastic and find a decent radiator.

Considering replacing it myself.
