    Radweld, yay or nay

    Changed the radiator in my 300tdi a year and half ago. However the new one has now developed a leak, I can’t bring myself to spend £110 on a new one and mess about fitting it. What does everyone think to putting radweld in it, or should I stop being cheap and get a new radiator? Cheers

    So... The Major (see avatar) has been behaving very well recently. It may have been a touch misguided, given the brake locking issues that caused my big crash, to drive it to Dundee and back on the dual carriageway twice in one day but hey, I live on the wild side. She made it, no...

Also, I confirmed yesterday that this does not happen when the AC is off, only when it's...
