Spoolers,

I have recently developed a coolant leak.

I located the leak the other day on lunch while at the office (Yes, I am literally that guy that works on their car during lunch in the parking lot)

Do any of you know if this piece is replaceable? I can't find a name or anyone selling it or if it can even be replaced!

Please help! D:

The black plastic peace has a crack going up through it. I really don't wanna have to buy a new radiator at the moment. Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks again everyone,
Derek

Well I'm not sure if there is a good way to fix end tanks, as your radiator coolant circuit is pressurized to a degree. I think you have to replace it. Good thing, is there are upgraded radiators out there from CSF I think.

Yupp definitely not replaceable, and not worth trying to rig it up. I would definitely replace it with the csf radiator, which has aluminum end tanks l, so no plastic to crack.

Do you know anyone who has run it personally? I remember ar design had their radiator. Never ended up fitting.

From what I've seen and heard the CSF is the way to go. I'll probably patch it up for 2 weeks and baby the car and replace the radiator with my next paycheck.

May as well order the thing now. Take some photos, I don't think there is a writeup on that yet.
