    Default How to replace the radiatior (2.0 DTI)

    Is it possible to replace a Vectra radiator without jacking the car up?

    Basically, the car has front end damage, so the front bumper & bumper reinforcement bar will be removed.

    Upon fitting the new radiator, I intend to fit a new reinforcement bar and bumper.

    Just had a thought.

    The damage on the car is literally the centre of the front of the car. The radiator has gone inwards (sharp dent) with the crash bar. The intercoolers would be on the sides so may not be damaged.
