Gday guys

Slight issue, I found out today via my car overheating and my heater not working that my radiator has a hole in it.
I have been quoted $210 for the radiator and $170 for the labour but im rather strapped for cash at the moment.
Now i know my tools just dont work on cars much, is it easy enough to replace myself? and is there any difference between a $210 one from my mechanic to a $89-$180 from ebay?

Any help would be appreciated

Aaron

pretty straight forward. If you can spin a spanner and undo hose clamps it's pretty simple.

My old mans landcruiser leaks from the tank o-ring when it's been sitting for a while. Use it frequently again and it takes up....

stupid difference in plastic/ally thermal expansion and contraction rates and the 'stupider' engineer that thought it would be a good idea...
