    Explain the Porous head problem?

    Hello,

    Just wondering if someone can explain this Porous head problem that seems to be common on the 53 plate A3's.

    Also what is the fix for this, what is it that needs to be changed?

    thanks
    Tom

    There is no fix. You have to change it.

    Do a pressure test first as the head is quite expensive. You want to be sure the leak is from the head or not before buying.
