i do get a weird tight feell to my steering from time to time...it feels like a lane keep on a newer car...feels stiff for a split second when I am trying to steer and then goes away instantly...
what was leaking behind your washer fluid tank? I think that’s the exact spot mine is leaking from.Arabian, "been there, done that". No, taking off the panels between the tires will not give you the access you want. (You will see a beautiful large portion of the raw CF chassis of the car -- but no access to behind the wiper tank!)
I DID have a leak behind the windshield wiper tank in my 12C -- POS to get to. Took mechanics several hours, and wiper tank had to be removed. Very difficult spot to get to; no access from bottom of car either.
(Then in my case, constant leaks turned out to be pressure from the cracked head sending coolant out of the cylinder(s) and into the coolant chamber -- but enough of that nightmare!)
One last question (while I hold my breath). Was the leak up front caused by a cracked head??? (breathing heavy as I type lol)Coolant line connection. I have a 570 now, so don't remember the exact reason for coolant line there, I believe it divided at that point behind the wiper tank, and then traveled to both smaller radiators up front. It took two different mechanic shops, over several visits to finally get to the connection. We left the battery alone b/c I did not want issues with battery disconnect; but we had to remove the windshield wiper fluid tank. When we did that, could finally see the connection where it was leaking.
Cool. (Lol)and the culprit was....NOTHING...just condensation...it looks like the ac conden plug was kind gritty and clogged. Cleared that out, had the mechanic inspect it with AC on and off etc. Tasted the leak, said it was water...lol.
can you tell me the procedure or give me a link? I rented this today and will do the procedure for peace of mind. Thanks!Go get a vacuum bleeder or pressure tester, its like 60$ at HF. The #6 cap fits our cars. You can just pressurize the system and see if there is a leak that way. The lower hoses on the front radiators are prone to leaking.
I've never taken the pans off...I would assume just remove the bolts on both sides? Anything I need to be aware of? Thanks!its the lower radiator clamps, they always leak... just take the pans off, they are easy to access. You should do the upper ones as well and the front ones. Its a common issue.
