Ford Fiesta N 95 Radiator

#1
My little brother just had his first bumb, right in front of the old bill too.

He said he has been quoted £95.

Now I reckon you could get a new engine for that price, or even replace the whole car.


Is that the going rate for a 95 Fiesta rad these days or is someone having him on?

Go to a scrappy plenty of them about and fix it yourself would imagine about £30 tops for a raidator might be a bit cold fitting it in this weather if you can do it yourself which is pretty easy

Cheers lads. Just wondering if any mk 3 rad would fit? Seen one for £18 on autotrader parts, and they are guarenteed.

My cousin who is a mechanic (female) says scrap it, but then she could only get the radiator for £95.

She also mentioned she would struggle attach the bumber to the body as its bent in a little?

Surely this can be a cheap fix? he hit a fence at about 8mph.

could pull it straight using another post, attaching a tow rope, reversing slowly.

Is the bonnet single skinned? bang it out with a hammer with a swirly head (shrinks the metal) as for the rad, scrappy or ebay

Tomo Ford can be worth a stab for bits. They like cash and will do a deal sometimes...

Are the radiators universal? Not a clue you see
Some rads will be shared by other engines, but they are not generally universal, just make sure the mounts and pipes are in the same location.

Go to Ford with engine size/type, reg no. and chassis no; they should be able to tell you the rad type and model. While there check the price of a rad from them if you haven’t, and price of bonnet, bumper parts, Ford can be stupidly cheap on some parts!

Cheers. Speaking to my mother, I reckon it is a 1.4 Ghia, as that is what the log book says apparently.
It's a 1.4 CVH 8v engine, with CAT, I would assume, should be enough info to narrow down which rad.

No air con.

Is it safe to drive 3 miles with the rad done in?


When he bumped it he traveled 3 miles with a bust rad, it was freezing outside if that helps. Could there be more damage? he reckons it wont start, but then he is trying to convince my mom to scrap her car, as he is spending his money on a new one.

Depends if it overheated, this can cause warped head. Mind you a few hundred quid can get you a runner, so he may be right.
