Peugeot 206 radiator leak - anyone help or advise?

Found 20th Jul 2009
We have a radiator with a small leak - any advice on changing the radiator ourselves? Car is peugeot 206 XS, 2000 (W reg), 1600 engine. Is it fairly straightforward? Can't find a relevant Haunes manual. Thanks for reading this.

hi,fitting the rad is staight foward ,top and bottom hose.The important part is bleeding the system of air locks,i seem to remember there may be 2 bleed points to open up but not sure where they are located,sorry i cant be of more help.
if its only a small leak cant you use that stuff you put in the water its called " radweld"
I had a leaky radiator in my Peugeot 205, tried using Radweld but didn't work. I was losing about a litre a week. I just kept topping it up every week until it's MOT expired then I scrapped it. Radiators can be expensive to replace have you looked to see how much it is?
Try a scrap yard.
Good thing is....taking one off there is good practice for taking yours off. ;-)
you will get all the car manuals that you need from your local libary if they dont have what you require they will order it foryou.
