PostSubject: Aluminum radiator on ebay   Wed Apr 29, 2015 7:40 pm

So found a crack in the lower plastic of my radiator. Was about to pull the trigger on a replacement on rock auto but then saw this on ebay:
http://pages.ebay.com/motors/link/?nav=item.view&id=291415489085&alt=web
Only $100 more than rock auto.

Anyone have experience with this? I just want to make sure it'll fit before buying it. Sent them a message but who knows when they'll reply

FWIW, I've picked up aluminum rads fro  eBay and had pretty good luck with them.  They're definitely not as sturdy as the stock D2 rads, but if you're careful not to mash the fins (something that's easy to do), they've seemed very functional...

The eBay seller said it will fit no problem but didn't give any dimensions. I messaged a guy on discoweb who bought a ebay rad in the past from a different seller said the fitment was crap and nothing lined up. I ended up buying both, the aluminum and rock auto stock replacement. This way I can get it done in a day and if the aluminum one fitment blows I'll just return it.

I'll update it when they come.

Cool. FWIW, the eBay one I got did fit fine...My guess is that they're hit or miss depending on who made them. IDK who the mfr was fir mine...for the price I'm sure it was a Chinese knock-off...

Uminum ones do not fit without modding cause they were built wrong

OK. The D2 rads all have plastic ends anyway, so that may explain why I didn't have any problems...
