Radiator Top source

Does anyone have the info on where you can order the radiator tops only?
I ran into the thread last year but cannot seem to find it again and was hoping that someone still had the info stashed away on their hard drive.
I've been searching around and will look through all the threads if I have to but I've got about a thousand posts to sort through.

Thumbs down Replace

the whole radiator.
This is the type of cheapskate repair that will cost an engine.

Radiator shop can probably get the lid and install it for you cheap. I am with hunter on this one, that new radiator is cheap insurance.
And that's the way it is. Sorry if this is not what you wanted to hear. I reserve the right to be wrong, others take the liberty. My posts are not intended to be complete, just enough to help you find your own answers. Don't let the Relevance Paradox get you.

Check out this link

In just 12 hours I broke my new 300td

I PM'd Dakotawind who replaced just the radiator top and it was working like new. The only difficulty is that when I called them I found out that the supplier sells wholesale only, so either make yourself out to be a radiator shop when you call or get a local shop to buy it for you...

I didn't replace the top on mine, I put a new one in.

Good luck!
