    Are getting a radiator replaced or having the crimping checked, pressure check, second clamp installed? Just curious. I had a second clamp installed February; preventative. I've had no issues to this point...did you?

    The new TSB requires a measurement of the radiator end caps. If they fail the measurement the radiator must replaced.

    It was posted here by ResumeSpeed . No they measure the end cap with a special tool. Mine was not leaking but failed the inspection.

    How long did it take for the tool inspection, and did they have the radiator on hand for it?
    My service dept does not have the radiator in stock and claims they can not order it until they know they need it. I do not want to get it torn down, discover it needs it, and then have to leave my car while they order it...

    Bah I can't find RS thread on this. I am sure it is there but I don't have time to search right now as I am at work.

    I'll be interested to see when radiators start passing the weld / crimp inspection (I haven't heard that yet, not that that couldn't happen.) (Mine didn't.) If the tests start stacking up fail, I'll be waiving a BS flag at FCA. You could see a radiator cutting loose in the wrong place and time threatening safety of those in the car and cars around them. Support B5 Blue we want the test results in the Wiki comments (is that right B?) I'll put mine there. To trend the test results pass fail.

    Trying to get mine scheduled now. No leaks yet but my build falls within the RRT/TSB parameters. Told dealer also to make sure they have all parts on hand before bringing me in. Be nice to know also when people start acting on this RRT/TSB if any of the radiators actually pass the inspection as mentioned above. I will post as soon as I know.
