Radiator bypass pipe leak.

Postby BeanBug » Sat 25.08.2018, 05:27

Hi All,

Need some advise. My radiator bypass pipe (RBP) is disintegrating from the inside out and causing coolant to leak. I am unable to find a replacement, and the local shops are having problems replicating the pipe due to the flare fitting on the o-ring end.

Could I create a thread in the hole that the RBP goes attach a stainless steel pipe fitting and replace the RBP with a hose? Or would the hose start disintegrating too due to the close proximity to the exhaust manifold and turbo?

It seems that there are others in the same boat. :(
It might be worth contacting Sinan:
