    VALEO Radiator Issue

    I have know about this issue from this forum for a while, and I have concerns about the W203 that we have in the family as it is affected. Not really sure what to do at this point as I don't think we should have to shell out for a new rad. Anyway I saw in yesterdays telegraph motoring section...

    electric fans on front radiator

    Having recently acquired my 320e with the m104 engine i noticed that the electric fans for the aircon work differently to my previous 260e, could someone confirm if this is normal or if it is a fault. On my 260e which ran on R12 gas once the temperature hit 100c both electric fans would come on...

    How can I fix a slight leak in radiator pipe joint ?

    Hi everyone, I have three copper water pipes coming down the wall close to each other. One of the pipes is very slowly leaking at the joint but I cannot tighten the nut as I can't get the spanner in between the pipes. As the leak is very slow can I use an epoxy resin to smear round the pipe...

    Hello - has anyone ever experienced this, if so any idea what the cause is?. A new-ish top hose on the radiator was blown off, the hose sheared in a perfect circle. The jubilee clip was on fairly tight, but not to the point it would crush the hose, i don't think... result: possible blown head...

    Do all w211's have the Valeo Radiator?

    Having read the posts on the problem on W211's regarding the coolant entering and ruining the autobox's on these models, I went to find the makers name on the radiator on my '03 E320 CDI. The only name that I could see was 'Behr'. I was therefore wondering if I have escaped the problem and have...

    Should I replace the Valeo radiator?

    Just spent 108 quids to carry out a glycol test, just to ensure that my E500 does not have that awful issue. The test came back ok, no issue. But a preventative action is to replace it, not sure if it is worth it though. I was quoted about 1000 to replace the radiator, a bit pricey I think...
