Alfa 156 JTD 2.4

156 2.4JTD Radiator probs

Hi Folx, just wondering if I should be able to move the rad quite easily up and down about an inch? I'm kinda thinkin it should be fixed tight...

Had a new one fitted along with a 2nd hand bumper, about 3 weeks ago after hitting a deer on the way to work.... since the repairs have noticed a creaky sound coming from the front end.
Also.. had the power steering cooling pipe (the coiled one right behind the bumper corner) replaced as that was a bit bent up.. looks like a good coiled pipe section was 'spliced' in and joined with rubber hose and jubilee clips... I'm a bit dubious about this repair as surely its a high-ish pressure pipe??

Just after the collective views here as the car (early 2.4 JTD) is my daily hack.. 130 miles a day and is costing an absolute FORTUNE in servicing and repairs of worn out parts.. since last April when I bought it am now on my 2nd set of engine mounts, 2nd set of front wishbones and have had most things that wear changed at least once! just guessing 4k in under a year.

don't get me wrong.. its good to drive, just needs lots of cash to keep it that way.
