- Vodice, Croatia
WIll get there...eventually.
Only problem is you wait ages to get your parts, but quality and prices are goodI bought them at autodoc.si web shop. German car parts web shop with Slovenian branch
Price was some 30€ piece + 15€ shipping. 75€ total.
Autodock have discounts everyday from 25 to 40%
Idea is to follow prices and try to buy them cheapest possible.
I just got my radiator in after months of delays but it was worth to waitAnother MOT done. With no remarks. 6th in row.
Lately had some issues with starting and misfiring. IT was rader cold. -2°C and "bura" - strong nortwest cold wind.
I was thinking elctrical part or fuel pump or carb.
This time i started from easiest repair possible.
So take of dizzy cap, after two years that i did not touch it.
Conectors inside was green from oxide, and there was slightly dust inside.
Cleaned that green stuf, dust away cap and put it back.
Unbeliable, how differance was noticable.
So, for now, it will stay like this. Won't bother with fuel pump or carb. If misfiring comes back will look other possible problems
Also checked waterpump which i renewed year ago (put new gasket on old waterpump) but under it was dry

So new radiator must put instead of this one.
I was thinking my waterpump is leaking but leak was on other side.
It is always fun with this car
Where did you buy it from?
I can see that has welded sides. Aluminium?
Most common place where it starta to leak is jont between radiator tubes and plastic sides.
