Hello,

I have a leaking radiator and I am having trouble finding a correct replacement for my 2003 Element radiator.

My local NAPA had a 'replacement' in stock. I bought the unit, pulled my old one and found that the fans did not fit correctly on the new one. The bottom pegs mount fine, but the bolt holes on top do not match. They are @ 3/4" to 1" too tall.

My local O-Rilley's had one in stock, I took the fans with me and the O-Rilley's radiator is exactly the same as NAPA's. The fans do not fit.

NAPA and O-Rilley's both said "oh well" grrrr....:x

None of the other local parts houses had one in stock. I will try some others on Monday....But I am worried that no one will have the correct radiator.

Anyone else run across this problem?

Try 1-800-Radiator. It looks like there's a half dozen or so in the DFW area. I've bought many a radiator from them and never had a problem.
