Having changed the Rad. in my 155 about 6 weeks ago, I can confirm that it is relatively simple. Bit more of a ***** if you've got A/C though. The A/C rad is the same size as the cooling rad and sandwiches it with the cooling fan.
thanks steve, HWE's car is a 146 1.7 boxer, but i think the bas operations would be similar, any chance you could do a surgery process?? this could then be updated if HWE does his boxer, shared info and all that, esp if a few points are tricky?? just a thought. had mine done a while back, but it was on a warrenty, didnt think to stand and watch......but if i think about it, digi photos could be good also, as a guide..HWE let me know what you think
Thanks benny, Looks like it should be sorted within a month! YIPPIE!!! Hopefuly it'll be sorted before the september meet. Then I wont have to turn up in a pug! (i'm gonna get linched if i do [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] )
Has anyone noticed how long this thred is !! its nearly 3 pages!!
I got my car back from the garage on Friday. With new cambelts and a new radiator.
My water temp is now at a average of 60 oC instead of <font color="red"> 90 oC !!!! [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]
I will have to take a pic of the state of the rad, it is so bad it made me laugh, there were hardly any fins left on it [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
My car seems to drink less petrol as well, which is always good!!! espically when i do 300-350 miles a week..
I went to a V.good garage in Luton called D H Auto's. I supplied the Radiator, and they supplied the belts and fitted them and the radiator for £170, which i think is a bargin,considering they are not a bunch of cowboys [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
So any one else who has a boxer enging and has High water temps, check you RAD out [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
