Water Leak


Recommended Posts

This morning I noticed antifreeze under the passenger side's radiator. I plan on taking a closer look this evening.

I was wondering if anyone has dealt with this before. Did you find a bad radiator that needed replacement? A faulty hose or connection? Is this a DYI job? Did you have to remove the front bumper? Or can you get to it via the wheel wheel. Anyhelp with what to expect is appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

To get complete access to the radiator, you will have to remove the front bumper, but you can start to investigate by removing the front fasteners for the wheel well liner and pulling the liner back.

If you have to remove the front bumper, use Skyler's excellent DIY for cleaning out the radiators and it will be a snap, here: http://www.realtime.net/~rentner/Porsche/R...r/Radiator.html

With any luck, it will only be a loose or cracked clamp!

Regards, Maurice.

Lots of people in wetter climates have found that the accumulation of leaves and debris that gets lodged between the air con & coolant rads can cause the aluminium cores and jackets to corrode. If your car has a high mileage it would be a good idea to remove the bumper and clean the whole area - if one rad is bad you can be sure the opposite one will be similar.

I couldn't believe the ammount of crud I removed from the rad areas - over a dustpan full of leaves, grass, cigarette buts, gravel etc - and @ only 60,000km. I had no corrosion, and after cleaning the car ran cooler too....
