Hi'

I need to buy a new Rad, can anyone tell me the correct Part Number or type to look for on E-bay?

Hi

Which one is leaking?
All 2.5's have two radiators, both are still available but around £80 to £100 each.
Look at the back of the big radiator near the bottom.
This should give an indication of where the leak is.
If it does not then unclip (spring clips at the top ends) the big radiator and pull it back a little.
Not much space but you should be able to see the little rad which is clipped to the front of the big one.
Will post part details when I have checked ebay.

Mister Auto stock both, iirc, with a choice of makes. Nissens at €119 and £96, discounts often available.
When you replace either, make sure you also renew the small U-shaped hose linking the two, as it's a bit of a bother to get at. Removing the LH headlight makes access easier.

I have never found the need to renew the link hose and always reuse.
To get space I just remove the four big bolts and the fan panel complete with headlamps tips forward a bit for better access.
If the 2.5 has A/C then that rad needs unclipping from the cooling rads.
A long flexy jubilee clip driver makes life much easier with the bottom hose.

Current ebay:
Main rad - Nissens 61308 - £101.48 - item 392128335610
Small rad - Nissens 61209 - £123.42 - item 401456650640
Both advertisers give component drawing of actual parts.

It is possible to link out rather than replace the small rad though not recommended.
A previous owner may have done this.
Small rad hose will easily reach the centre outlet on the main rad.
Hose diameter difference is only 2mm so can be made to fit.
