    Finally got round to taking the drivers side one out for a look and it looks like this:

    This is the only thing that I think could be leaking to spray all of this oil over it and everything around it. New one = £260ish :crying:. do I really need a new one? is there any way to test it is knackered?
    Thanks

    Will a radiator recoring specialist be able to help you?

    well I have discovered a big split in the corner on the other side and using my pressure test rig (gaffa tape and my lungs) there was loads of air coming out of it.
    Funnily enough I can't seem to find any leaks on the front side (pictured) where most of the oil spray was. Looks like I'm going to have to get a new one

    I paid £190 for a new IC from TPS.

    Ask for trade discount.
