Radiator repair.


Recommended Posts

Has anyone repaired their own radiator before? I have a very small coolant leak, circled below. I do not use the 200tdi style oil cooler. I can weld, so am hopeful I could solder a radiator.... Any experienced views? There is a chance that it is cracking all the way around the joint, although it might be a crack in the paint. Maybe....

Got a compressor or an air pump? Leak test with washing up liquid.

Clean it thoroughly, wet and dry. Tin the whole thing and then blob the leak with solder.

Yep sounds sensible! Got a couple of other jobs I'm lining up to do in one go so will be a little while before I do this. Least it's useable at the moment....
