Leaky Xantia

Post by tim leech » Wed Aug 09, 2006 10:06 am

I need a replacement radiator for my 1994 Xantia 1.8i 8v (non aircon) as its sprung a leak, as its nearly £100 for a new one from GSF (same value as the car) does anyone know where I can get a cheap one new of used?

Ok so ITS NOT the radiator its the matrix thats leaking! if it cant be fixed in situ its a dash out job which is hundreds, plus the catalyst is buggereed, the SD1s MOT has run out and needs work, the 16v is poorly and the GTi bounces all over the place. Grrrr :cry:

Maybe I should take up fishing!

Fishing gear is bulky and probably quite difficult to transport without a car. :shock:

The GTi only sounds as it needs spheres - an easy and inexpensive fix. :D

You can still admire the others as "museum" pieces and then prioritise and put them back on the road later when money and time permit. :wink:
