    My radiator on the Ml had had a slight weep for some months now, nothing serious but as with all things it will need attention soon.
    My question is how easy is this to do as a DIY job, the Ml has other smaller radiators attached and I was thinking of building a jig to support these whilst removing the main radiator, is it a simple job or one best left to an indi.

    Regards

    Not sure about on the ML but normally the gearbox cooler pipes connect to the rad as well, so will need dealing with as well as the water in the rad.
