Hi, I have a small coolant leak at the front.

 

The top hoses are fine, as is the bleed nipple.  I noticed that one of the bolts that secures the front undertray to the clam was covered in coolant, but not enough to actually drip.

 

So my thought was the hose connectors to the hard lines that run to the back.

 

My question is, is there an easy way to see the pipes join, arch liner out?

 

thanks

Think you can get to them by removing the front undertray, closing panel. Not sure if you have to loosen the clam to get to some of the bolts.

If it is the hose as I suspect I think finding a replacement pipe is going to be more difficult!

might be just a corroded hose clip or similar, the radiator pipes go straight onto those front to rear lines.

 

Is the radiator original ? could also be that giving up.

I did my radiator last year as a preventative measure and from memory between the closure panel and the wheel arch liner you may have a good chance.

Thanks guys, wheel arch first. I’m sure will end up taking the undertray of anyway, just need to see what the problem is.

 

Had a pro alloy for years.
