    radiator help

    i think my coolant rad has just split!!!

    the top and bottom hoses are both dry and all i can see is that the n/s/f is wet underneith. i cant see the rad only the ac rad as the rad hase been moved back so is now directly above the subframe.

    the question i want to know the answer to is- is the rad on the coupe turbo differend than a normal 2.0l mk4 astras ie is the rad fan mounted differently??

    any help would be great

    also if anyone has or knows of a zlet rad please let me know

    you say the rad is moved back is that coz you have a fmic if so did you move the air con pipes back as they tend to rub on the rad and make a hole
