Oil Cooler Pipes - location?

Hi, can anyone tell me where the Oil Cooler Pipes are located on a V6 for when I go and look at a potential purchase?

Re: Oil Cooler Pipes - location?

The oil cooler is located behind the front bumper on the offside of the car (Driver side on RHD) You should be able to see it through the aperture below the fog lamp.

Things to look for are rusty pipework and leaks from the pipes and cooler itself.
The pipes tend to rust where they can be seen due to being exposed to road dirt/Salt etc.

Fiat coupes have a similar setup and rusty pipework is very common..
I have painted mine with hammerite smooth as they appeared ok.
