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.
