Radiator pack


Recommended Posts

I purchased  an s4 recently, the PO took all the radiators off on the front as he had purchased a new radiator pack. There was nothing wrong with the old stuff. Has anybody got any experience in installing the new stuff? Anything that’s difficult?

thanks in advance

Putting the rad pack back isn't difficult, jus a bit unwieldy because of the size and weight. Best to support it with a jack or a transmission jack if you're working on a lift. A pair of helpings hands will be very useful as well!

Do make sure all hoses etc are securely attached before putting everything back in the car. Which you seem to be doing in the picture. And make sure they are all routed correctly and not pinched.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Second the suggestion to have a helper...saves fussing with the hoses etc.


YES it is unwieldy, especially with charge cooler-equipped cars.

Make room in your Swear Jar....😬

And if yuo make 2 cut-outs in the mounting lips of the of the tray for clearing the oilcoolers than they can stay in place the next time when you need to drop de radiator pack.
