    Default Radiator leak

    Hi

    I have discovered I have a leak coming from the bottom right hand corner of the radiator (drivers side). Its not coming from the drain tap but just by it. I was wandering if I could put some E metal or metal fill repair on it to stop it or would I have have to get a new radiator????

    Hi dansoap
    there's no reason you can't repair rad as long as it's done correctly,you don't want to dump coolant out whilst driving up the motorway (or autoban in your case)
    the radiators on the vectras are plenty large enough to stand a slight reduction in air flow if the repair covers a tube or two.

    I had a leak in the same place. I added Radweld to the coolant and now no leak!
