    Default Re: Water dripping from bottom of charge air cooler

    A long shot in the dark but could these units possibly be re-cored ?

    I have been recommended a company called Serck who have repaired these, but not having any luck finding anywhere else.

    I think they are made from special things.

    Only hope is a specialist radiator/ heat exchanger firm to re solder it.

    Could be worth a pressure test to see if they can find the leak. Maybe it’s easily accessible?

    That said...for my own piece of mind......I’d just bite the bullet and go new.

    Can’t imagine a bit of sea water sucked in with a load of air would have done much. The drain hole has done its job!

    Got to be worth sending it to them for a quote

    I hope you’re right about the sea water ��

    Ordinarily I would replace somethink like this for new but after my gearbox woes and all the other work I’ve had done I’m definitely “on a budget” now so if I can get it repaired I will probably will depending the difference in price. The new insert is £1800 cheapest I can get ��

    Someone from another forum has a used one they are letting me have. Once that arrives I’ll be keeping everything crossed it works ok. Then I’ll send mine off at my leisure to get repaired and keep as a spare.

    If this one I’m due to receive next couple of days isn’t any good I’ll just have to try get mine fixed sooner
