    Replacing Audi a3 radiator

    Hi, new to the forum so forgive any mistakes I make haha!


    my 2004 2.0 fsi a3 radiator is leaking. Just wondering if a 1997 1.6 a3 radiator will fit on ok as I have one on hand? Thanks

    The lock carrier is different & more than likely fixing/locators are also different, so my advice is buy the correct version for your car, its a risk not worth taking unless its free & can be test fitted without to much hassle.

    Neither of which are true of this site unless you alienate yourself by posting screenshots of dictionaries as a method of informing people. Then I could imagine it does look clique.

    Or maybe i'm misunderstanding your tone entierly.

    Ha ha what's up with you? Not at all was having a giggle and the site was posted to genuinely help people looking for parts who don't have access to TPS.. Think you have misunderstood completely bruv!! ;-)

    Are you affiliated with the site in someway as that's a very defensive tone you seem to taking, the above post from you is exactly what will make the site seem 'clique'!

    Don't take life so seriously :-)
