    Default Vitz radiateor problem.

    Dear All
    My vitz-99 radiator has a minor seapage from already repaired (By depoxy magic)area .
    Should i try it again by applying the magic or some one has a batter idea.
    The mechanic says that magic will not stand long due to heat and he suggested to change the radiator bottom portion.

    Please advise

    like i wrote yesterday to another pakwheeler
    go to a "radiator wala"........they dont bite
    will take 300 rupees and put aluminium "tanka" on it
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    Its Plastic or Aluminium Top/Bottom??

    Simply visit Radiator person they will change that part only will only take around 1200~1500 Rs. for replacement otherwise they will only charge 400~500 if not hard damage to water tanks and also will clean ur Radiator.

    Installing a new generator will be around 30+k if from 3S or if u buy original then around 25+k, adn if u again come to so called Kabli (Used) then it same as Repairing old one or getting that so called kabli from Kabariya.

    I have no personal radiator shop and i know that those solutions doesntlast very long but atleast those are solutions available.
