Radiator pouring out water!
Hi guys, driving home tonight I notice my tempeture over 90 for the first time since I have had my 156 1.9 jtd sport (2005) a few mins later I arrive home and notice my radiator doing a pee all over my drive, looks like there is a hole a the front bottom of the rad. After a min it stops and I squeeze and house off the rad and they r full off water. So I pour water in the coolant tank as it's empty and straight away it poured out the bottom of the rad. There must still be a lot of water in the system but not going to risk driving it.
So I have a few questions, are all 156 jtd radiators the same as I have seen a few on ebay advertised as 1.9 or 2.4?
Is it a bumper off job? I am hoping to get in from the top without removing the bumper.
Is there a radiator guide "how to" anywhere on the forum? I have done a search but not found anything?
Many thanks Jon
