I thought it only came in 3's ?
Well after the weekends fun & games I thought I would have a lie in, heard wife say"Bye just popping out to shop's" then 3 minutes later Crunch!
We live in a cul de sac & a delivery van was parked in the circle ,so she ended up doing a 3 -4 point (alfa crappy lock)turn, anyway somehow she went into a neighbours hedge & it dipped down , her foot went on the accelerator & Crunch over a tree stump & in between two small tree's!
Neighbours were great about it.
Damage wise, well all 4 doors are gouged & the bloody lower cross member that supports the radiators had a sharp kink in it. Where the radiator lug sits into the crossmemeber the plastic lug snapped off causing LARGE HOLE in the radiator!
What a pain in the *** of a job getting it out,after 3 hrs of cursing at everything around me I had the thing out on the drive.
The 2.4 JTD must be one of the worst cars to change a rad on as the Turbo actuator sticks out to get it out the top & the air con pipe's & the actuator get in the way going down,I went down ...as it were
I am going to try & see if the local Rad place can sort it out if not I suppose its a Nissans replacement instead of the Valeo one in there. I have straightened it out as best I can , can anyone recommend a place for radiator at a good price ?
