I need to get an leaking aircon pipe replaced in the next month or two (no hurry right now!) - my question is whether it is worth getting the radiator replaced before / if it fails.

The car has done 69k miles, no problems with cooling at the moment, and I had the temp sensor replaced about 20k miles ago.

It will also need the belt doing before the summer, so I could get it all done at the same time.

OR: Would my mechanic (who is pretty good) be able to tell by looking at the radiator as to whether it needs replacing?

I want to avoid a potential horror story, the like of which I've read on here over the years!

I've had 3 166 V6's the last one I had at 6months old with 6k and I sold it with 98k. None of them ever had any issues with cooling or broken radiators.
I wouldnt waste yr money unless it starts leaking
