    Had my rad go this weekend . It came up with a coolant warning light last week and after a top up again 2 days later.
    A quick removal of the bellypan revealed it pissing out once warm.
    Anyway a new one purchased and fitted tonight. I don't know if I take after Houdini as I started it at 6 o clock and went in the house at 9 finished.
    Didn't need to remove the front or the lights bumper etc etc. I had to smash the top outlet from the old one to get it out from the bottom but managed to get the new one in through the top
