Thanks for all, good forum, always good tips. I think the leakage is between the plastic "tank" and aluminium cell. Not repairable? After 280 000 km and 18 years perhaps time to buy a new one.


New radiator will be the type with built in cooler, which is more efficient,than the extension cooler, so I found, car ran 5-10.c cooler with the inbuilt cooler.
Yes, it came with built in version (Denmark Quality), but perhaps not a must to modify piping to use that, or what do you recommend?

Fit it in place of the leaking one along with the original oil cooler :y

You may have to swap the clips/bracket fastenings from the old radiator but it will all fit as the original  :y

The plastic plugs on the oil cooler fittings on the new radiator can be left in place in order to keep moisture/dirt out ;)
