    Default Rad or Intercooler?

    Chaps,

    Hope I've attached this pic properly, please can you tell me if this is a Radiator or Intercooler for a DTI? I've bought this advertised on Ebay as a rad, however the guy selling has called to say he thinks it's advertised wrong and is an intercooler. He's a genuine guy so called before sending.

    He seems to think the three rads front to back are; AIR CON, RAD, INTERCOOLER. I think the intercooler is in the middle and the rad at the back with the fans.

    I've not had a chance to check my vehicle fully but have been told my leak is the rad. HELP!

    Man that sucks for me!!! Well I guess I'll double check that's not the part that's leaking on mine and get a refund. Stupid question but an inter cooler is part of the coolant system, not like a bike oil-cooler rad is it?

    Coolant (as well as oil) can get into the intercooler if you have a problem elsewhere.
