Does anyone know where I can get a cheap radiator for a 98 2.0 spider as mine went in spectacular fashion last night. Resulting in another evening sat at the side of the road waiting for the AA man and praying for not too bad news! Suprisingly someone actualy stopped to see if we were ok, most people just stare and laugh.
I'm not entirely sure what has happened but the car overheated causing water to go everywhere. I knew the thermostat was not working and figure it could have been the cause. I now have a radiator that pours out water when it gets hot, this did not happen before so am unsure if this is the cause or a symptom.
I have changed a radiator before but this one looks more complicated. Is it relativly easy for a novice like me or should I leave it to someone who knows what they are doing? My girlfriend says that we could have paid the mortgage off with what ive spent on this car and that it's going once it's repaired so I'm hoping I can get this done cheaply and that the sun comes out soon so that she will changs her mind.
