Hi all
Rather new to the forum got my corsa d 1.6 sri about a month ago and have come across a pretty scary problem :(, a water leak from the radiator area unsure of where abouts will have to investigate further. The radiator was changed about 3 years ago by vauxhall as the car had a faulty a/c (I've been told common in this model) as a result the mechanics punctured the radiator and it was replaced, unsure the lose of water is a consequence of poor insulation but don't think this has been happening for 3 years any thoughts.
Thanks guys and girls

Alex

Well air conditioning was faulty and was replaced by vauxhall but they damaged the radiator in the process so they replaced that too :/ thought maybe a loose pipe or nackered radiator but its only 3 years old :/
Thanks

Take it to your local garage (none vx as will be cheaper) then they can do a pressure test to see where theirs a leak my rad had a crack that only leaked under really high pressure ended up costing £200 for new 1.

Yea, 59 registered 2010 1.6 t a/c with a remap if that makes any difference. Would that be why the radiator is dead? Because its had a vxr 192 remap. (That may be a really stupid question haha)
