156 tpark what holds the radiator??

I bought a damaged 156 tspark 1.6. The top of the radiator wobbles and i am wondering is there a bracket that holds it in place? i have the complete assembly around the radiator which is welded to the car! just not sure what holds it steady at the top! cheers for any help in advance!

There's a metal clip that bolts to the underside of the slam panel with a rubber boot the same shape as the clip that fits inside and over the top of the rad,

Check that the bottom radiator support has the rubber grommets in that the pegs on the bottom of the rade sit into, and that those pegs haven't sheared off, if its been banged at the front....also that the bottom support hasn't been distorted in any bump (they often are) - then as Cobra says the slam panel (bolt-on, not welded) has a bracket which has a large rubber block that sits onto the top of the rad to stabilise it...I can probably find you one if you are stuck....
