    coolant leaking 2.0 bkd tdi.. Dripping from under

    My 2004 2.0 gt tdi just started leaking slightly only when the engine is running. I can drive for about 20 mins before the light comeson and i have to top up. Its leaking from the undertray and looks like it coming from the radiator.
    Gonna have a look tomorrow properly under, i hope its a pipe and not the rad.
    Anyone have any problems like this?

    Most people to be honest !!

    Sounds like the radiator which is a common problem both on the A3 and Mk V Golf.

    Not too bad to replace moneywise and much better than losing coolant the other way - via a porous cylinder head !!

    Might be a pipe but look at the bottom passenger side of the rad for leaks.

    OEM part is 225 - part no. 1K0 121 251 N

    Eurocarparts or similar should be nearer half that I would think and will be just as good.
