    Default Leaking Radiator

    Morning all,

    I bought a '57 2.2i direct estate last week and noticed a few odd drops of liquid on my driveway in the first couple of days. Last night the coolant warning light came on and this morning I have a rather steady stream of pink antifreeze dribbling out of the bottom of the radiator!

    I'm assuming this means a new radiator? Any idea how much that's going to cost me before I call the dealer (independent) and have a chat?!

    Is it leaking from front or back of radiator, and from a pipe/join, or just leaking from a random hole? It's the kind of thing you'll find in a breakers or on the Bay unless you can get a result from going back to the dealer from which you bought it and making a fuss.
