Radiator hose elbow leaking
2004 156 1,8L TS
A year ago I noticed a small leakage of coolant on my car. I saw some steam coming from the bottom left corner of the radiator when the engine was running, so this summer I replaced the radiator. Sadly, the car is still losing a small amount of coolant. This makes me think of the elbow connector on the bottom hose. This is located at the came place I saw the steam coming from. I think the leak is coming from that connector so it must be replaced.
As far as I remember this connector was quite hard to get off the radiator, even with the rad away from the car. I don't want to remove the rad just to replace this hose, so maybe someone can tell me where to get a radiator hose without that plastic elbow? I would prefer to just use a jubilee clip.
Or are there any other ways to fix this leak?
