    Possible Radiator replacement

    Hi All. At my recent 50K service the mechs said I may need a new radiator because of some fin damage. I bought and installed a radiator guard immediately (hope not too late). Planning ahead what is likely cost and effort of a replacement of this part - are radiators easy to locate (Australia - Sydney). - any comments welcome

    Re: Possible Radiator replacement

    I'm not sure whether OEM are available anymore and if they are would probably cost a fortune but there are a few threads on here where guys have fitted the Chinese copies with good effect
    May sometimes need a tweak on the overflow pipe but other than that they seem OK

    Just make sure you get the radiator type right, because Birds have been fitted with 3 (!) different types of radiators through the years.
