these last few days i have noticed that my rad has been using a little coolantUnsure i have checked for the signs of headgasket faliure,and all is well..and also checked footwell for damp or water and all's fineSmile so as i checked the rad i found to my surprise its f##ked....as there are just about no fins in 3/4 of the dam thingLOL then i noticed a date stamp on top of it saying 18/02/2000LOL so you could say it was the factory fitted rad!!
so i am after a new one with the push in hose with wire clip.....what one should i go forDunno

Another vote for the Nissens rad. Yes

It seems to keep the engine slightly cooler than what the standard Ordonez one used to and it has also stayed nice and shiny. Cool

I can't believe you've sold quite so many Carl, that's mental!

Really? Is that a genuine one (Ordonez) from Pug or a Nissens?

I bought a Nissens and pretty sure I didn't receive a new o-ring with it...
